In the midst of something I never thought I’d experience – something I never thought to even think about whether or not I’d experience – I mostly just sit and I think. It’s been almost a year of isolation now and if you can name it, I’ve thought about it. In fact, I haven’t just […]

To the tune of Auld Lang Syne* May 2020 be forgot, but not all the lost lives. Oh, 2020, please fuck off and fuck your unprecedented times. May 2020 rot in hell, and may we move on in peace. Oh, 2020, please fuck off and take the racists when you leave. May 2020 be forgot, […]

A lot of people have been talking about how they’re scared for their boys and I have to say, I am too. As a mom of two young boys, I’m terrified. I’m terrified that despite all the lessons between right and wrong Seth and I will teach over the course of the next 15 or […]

It’s been a while. Hey, how are you?! Insert massive hug. Seth has been saying, “Babe, you gotta do an A and J!” on and off for a while now and my response has consistently been, “I know but I have nothing to write about.” And then last night he said, “BABE. You gotta blog. You […]
