Mommy Dearest

I'll go out on a limb here and say for most of us, being a parent is, quite literally, the hardest job we've ever had or ever will. And, at the same time, it's the richest, most fulfilling, most rewarding contribution to our own lives and always will be.   One of the most surprising aspects … Continue reading Mommy Dearest

“As the Shade Spins” A tra-com-edy of dysfunction and disillusion

Good Grief

I've experienced my share of loss. Most of a certain age have, and some not of such an age. It is an inevitable part of life. I've mourned the loss of grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends much too soon, neighbors, and four-legged buddies too. Grief is a process. It's as important a process as … Continue reading Good Grief
