hard + fun

Four years ago, I began emailing a blog every Friday at 6 am. Typically, on Wednesday I will have an aha moment and know exactly what to write. This week, nada. There I was, moving through my Thursday with the thought, I really need to write something - not just...

the ripening

Living in LA, there were times during a hectic day when I would (only half-jokingly) claim that I was about to move to the country to raise goats and make really good organic goat cheese. Why goats? I have no idea. I've never even encountered a live goat. But, that's...

Is bad good ?

Is bad good ?

I don't like bad noises, and I am picky about volume. Unless, of course, I'm at an Elton John concert or joyfully singing at the top of my lungs to Kirk Franklin—a noise my 12-year-old daughter once described as both loud and bad, understandably. Yes, both loud and...

Hello, poppies

Hello, poppies

This morning as I stepped outside, I gasped with delight. For the past few weeks I’ve been watching these egg shaped Dr. Seuss looking things hanging out in our garden, wondering what they were. And yes, I do have an app on my phone that will give me its best guess at...

Loving potential

Loving potential

This is an invitation to fall in love with potential. What did you say? That is terrible advice. I did that once. Well yes, probably we all have. Yet did we actually fall in love with potential? Or did we fall in love with thinking that we could change things that...
