Lately I have been reading through a journal I wrote when I turned 25 - ramblings and musings from a decade ago when I was so young I felt invincible. I felt overwhelmed by what seemed like life’s endless possibilities. I had starry-eyed dreams of accomplishing Something Big. I had a lot of very high [...]
Thanks to Ms. Single Mama for inspiring this video!!
I have been neglecting this poor blog all summer, but I’d like to think that I have a bit of a good excuse.
I was busy recording a spoken word album, working with a professional producer here in DC. This is how my life goes; when I take on a new project, something else gets neglected. [...]
This is a very special time of year for me when New Age Mama comes out in full force. It is the Aries New Moon - the astrological new year, so to speak. A ritual that I began for the first time last year was to make what is called a “treasure map” - a [...]
Life is just so damn weird sometimes.
I think about these circuitous paths and wonder: how much is destiny? How much is free will? I won’t try to figure out this age-old theological debate tonight, but just putting it out there that I sit with these questions sometimes.

Everything was going relatively well until I went to the bathroom and came back finding them in mid-PDA. I flipped out, and this involved me cursing, shaking my fist at her, and giving them the finger [...]
Literally, I am sick and tired…my throat burns, my eyes sting. I should be in bed, watching the DVD of the Yacoubian Building that I ordered from Netflix. But I’m here instead, reflecting on this odd, odd existence.
The world feels like it is crashing and burning all around and then I see that this state [...]
Welcome to this blog - my chronicle of the illuminating, character-building path of single parenthood. I'm making this up as I go along. My life is my practice, and my five year-old son is my greatest teacher.
