geeking out on some last words.

As most of my readers know, I am writing a book about death - the dying process, coping with it, grief, those types of things. As a part of that, I do plenty of reading and research - and I've been working on something that has been really fun and interesting. Well, fun and interesting to... Continue Reading →

time to write a (long) story.

Who lives? Who dies? Who tells your story? -- Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda Like many others, I was anxiously awaiting the premiere of Hamilton on Disney Plus earlier this month. I've been a long time lover of musical theatre and a performer of it in my youth and I couldn't wait to see if this actually... Continue Reading →

changing my word.

As I wrote in my previous post, I got REALLY sick earlier this month and will be on IV therapy for the next several weeks as I continue to heal.

dancing with a limp

Yesterday just beat me down six ways to Sunday. My new doc was very kind - but full of not-great-news. Questions about why my hips are falling apart with a different kind of arthritis?
