Last Thursday I saw The Revisionist, a play written by Jesse Eisenberg, who also starred along with the unquestionably magnificent Vanessa Redgrave, and directed by Kip Fagan at the Cherry Lane Theater in Greenwich Village. Not knowing what to expect, I was blown away for two heart wrenching hours that also had me laughing out loud more than I ever had at a play.
However, the inevitable stress has started to build up again what with some bad family news, writing assignments piling up for Contently, and realizing that trying to fund the trip to Coachella means I’m living off of rice and beans for three months. Continue reading “What’s Worth Worrying About”→
Taking advantage of the fact myself and all my sisters were home for Thanksgiving, my dad wanted to show off my parents’ new sailboat (and have us help put it up in storage for the winter). We have been sailing out of Tidewater Marina in Havre de Grace, Maryland for years. On Saturday, the sky, water, and buildings were all of the same palette of blues and navy.
Despite my flight from La Guardia to Midway being three hours delayed, an incredibly busy day of work yesterday, and sitting in the backseat of car for a two hour drive with a wedding dress pouffier than I imagined, I’m finally in Michigan for my sister’s Theresa’s wedding.

When sitting down to write this morning, I reread the entry I wrote this time last year “So This Is the New Year….“, back when I was on a kick of writing song lyrics as entry titles. As I read and listen to the voice of my younger self, it reminds me again how I am happy I started this blog years ago.
