A Gift Guide From Someone Who Knows How


And today, I’m going to send you to Verhext’s blog, who has put together a gift guide for her Fancy Friend(s). Let’s pretend that’s us, shall we? When you arrive, this is what you will find, links and all. She’s one of those people you discover on the Internet and think, well, she’s got an […]

Trying On Wise, Or, Saturday Morning at 10:33am


Here’s something good about the 50s. You’ve lived a meaningful chunk as an adult – about 30 years, as I see it. And 30 years is not nothing. In 30 years stuff comes and goes, and comes again.

Off To Blog Hiatus, See You Bright And Early In September, Or, Saturday Morning at 7:41am


Today marks the first Saturday post I’ve ever written in advance. Usually I begin upon rising and put my pen down by noon, come proverbial hell or high water. It’s an exercise I’ve set myself, and one I highly recommend to establish a regular schedule and editorial rhythm. This August is also the first month-long […]
