You may be wondering where the last decade has disappeared to with memories of your fiftieth celebrations as clear as if they were yesterday. But before you get all maudlin about life being over, give yourself a sharp shrift talking to. There’s plenty more joy a...

VEGAN KILLERS- JUST BECAUSE IT’S VEGAN DOESN’T MEAN IT’S GOOD FOR YOU

BE IN MY WILD WILDERNESS

More than tremorous earthquakes I desire your desire to traverse and trace the contours of my corporeal map The dewy caverns of my mouth The starry expanse of freckles upon my yoke The waves of my tresses The amber pools of my eyes The mottled speckles of my skin The crater of my navel The braided river of my veins and The dark forest opening to my cavernous inside. Explore, intrepidly, darling. W...

DEAR MY ABUSER

Why was your desire, your lust, your god-damn desperation more important than what I wanted, than what I was ready for. Why did you claim to love me, but when it came to your fingers you never once asked “do you want to?” Why would you spend months manipulating me, conditioning me to believe that me not wanting your hands on me was my issue—that I was odd, I was the f*cking problem. Your needs wer...

SPRING CLEANING

Everything I’ve ever needed has always been in my possession but the space between my rib cage has been a cluttered, dusty attic filled to the brim with heavy baggage and painful memories pulling down the ladder and climbing inside the cavity wasn’t voluntary it was something I had to do the longer days and warm air called upon me to move but like all spring cleaning it takes time to sort through ...

DON’T BE AFRAID

Strolling through my neighborhood recently, I walked past a piece of art on the street that says, don’t be afraid to act like you f*cking care. I laughed out loud and whipped out my phone.

But I couldn’t le...

THE ONLY THING YOU CAN BE IS YOUR TRUTH

For me, writing was always like breathing. It was just something I always did, natural and necessary, ever since I can remember. By the time I was 21, I was pretty dead set. I was going to write a novel, I was going to take all the years of daydreaming and soap-opera-watching and turn it all into my own real living page-turning tale. I am 29 now and my first novel, “Heartsand” has been...

5 TIPS TO TACKLE BIAS IN THE WORKPLACE

LESSONS FROM A RECOVERING “I’M NOT GOOD ENOUGH” ADDICT

Many of us have a list of long term goals, which include marriage and a dream job. Losing both in one week led me on a path of exploring “enoughness.” Not-enoughness can dictate our lives if we do not truly understand our worth and purpose. Not-enoughness is a concept, a feeling, a belief. Not-enoughness is the constant feeling of dread you walk around with that says I must have, I mus...
