“I’m not blogging because…”

May 20, 2013


I saw a girlfriend this weekend who was disappointed I don’t blog anymore. For myself, at least – blogging for others is my job at work. She said she understood. I’d disappeared into the happy place of “Boyfriend World.” You know, that annoying place where your friends go and are suddenly rendered unable to return […]

New art.

April 16, 2013


Hey everyone! It’s been awhile. I’ve had trouble writing on this blog lately – no new photo albums to share, no terribly crazy stories to tell (which sometimes is a good thing!), and not much at all to complain about. Also, I find the more I write at work, the less I’ve been writing at […]

The Day I Wanted Crab Cakes and Ended Up in a One-Way Tunnel to the Airport.

March 7, 2013


I’m stuck in this one-way tunnel – that I wasn’t supposed to be in – to an airport I don’t need to be going to – in a city I don’t know – with a dying cell phone. And I start crying. But just how did a day trip to Boston get so emotional? Let’s […]

Ten minutes on storytelling.

February 20, 2013


Sipping quickly from a coffee mug, I’m about to leave to go speak to (and with) a group of Capital Region bloggers I’ve never met. I’ve been asked to talk about creating blogs worth reading – and how to share them, how to promote them. So I’m thinking. And thinking quick, because quite honestly, I […]

On our first ever christmas, my true love gave to me… a door!

December 22, 2012


“Mom, he got me a DOOR!” This Christmas, we got each other an apartment. Other presents were to wait as we spent money on furniture, a coffee maker, U-Haul trucks and security deposits. Except then he found something to make into the perfect desk for writer me. Who has a history of doing her writing […]

October blooms

October 27, 2012


A year ago, this blog was the everyday travel journal of a backpacker with no itinerary, no deadlines, no responsibilities but to stay alive and not lose her passport. It was fantasy-like. And then the blog transitioned to what’s next. The one-way ticket bought for a return to New York. Then the job search. Then […]


September 27, 2012


A year ago today, WordPress decided I wrote something decent, and I had my first post ever Freshly Pressed. “Part One: A Look At Budapest.” This is the love fence. If you are in love, and you come here, you write or etch the initials of you and your love on a lock, put it […]

A few words of advice.

September 15, 2012


Quite randomly, a man came up to Ryan and handed him this yesterday. He let me share.

In this age of urgency.

September 12, 2012


Two major news stories unfolded today. To call them equal in importance, impact, emotional and worldwide influence would be in poor taste. By critical, I suggest only by count of stories, by outlets, by reporters, by headlines. By no judgement of their content or context. Today, a rocket attack on the United States embassy in […]
