i’m not good at letting go

i’m not good at letting go

I’ve never been good at it. Letting go of people, of friendships or relationships. That kind of thing. Because of it, my boundaries aren’t always what they should be. I grew up in a glass house, in a small town. I came from a long line of lawyers, of politicians, of educators. I was raised […]

evolving, part I

The last few years have changed me. Maybe, at least in part, that’s the price of aging. The “with age comes wisdom” thing. Perhaps that is part of it. But I think a bigger part of it has come from both within and without, the price of the Trump years. They were exhausting for me, […]

Gone, and Back Again

Gone, and Back Again

It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged regularly. Other than a few posts here and there, it’s been seven years. Why so long? Honestly, life just got in the way. Something had to give for me, and blogging one of those things. But I’ve missed it. It was always a part of my (almost) […]
