Self-Appointed Boyfriend Probation
Crazy Hip Blog Mamas, May 2007
Maybe someday I will meet a nice fellow that’s not into drugs or absolutely, legitimately crazy, but for now, I am perfectly content with being on self-appointed Boyfriend Probation.Dreaming
Mosaic Minds, December 2006
I can’t remember my dreams worth anything these days. I know I do dream: upon waking I can recall snippets of the night’s dream, until it quickly vanishes completely from my fuzzy brain.Changing Directions: On Writing and Journaling
The Whole Mom, November 2006
“I write regularly in my journal. I take that back-I used to write regularly in my journal. This past year, I have gone from being a faithful, detailed, everyday journal keeper to writing a sporadic, intermittent mix of half-coherent fragments. When I wrote on a regular basis, I could fill a two hundred page hard-bound journal within a month or less. These days, it takes me a disappointing four months. In the new journal I recently started, I write half sentences, ideas that go nowhere, fragments of events that I wanted to record, all left hanging in mid-sentence.”

The Whole Mom, August 2006
“I thought about carrying around a tape recorder to make little reminders to myself of prose and poetry bits and whatever else pops in my mind for future reference. It is an idea. The batteries are in the tape recorder, all set to go-buried in my desk. Maybe.”
