I called in to work. For the morning. Which babystepped me into following up a few hours later to nix the whole day. I called doctors and have an appointment tomorrow with a neurologist. In 2006, I was hospitalized in Richmond after having a seizure. I went for all the testing, but walked out in a panic on the tilt-table test, because of their explanation of the procedure: If the test...
How Do Cakes Rise?
My brother planted a genius idea into my brain, of flying from Austin to Richmond, hanging out for a day or so, and then flying with him from Richmond to Fort Lauderdale for our family’s early Thanksgiving. The season change has slapped me awake from a two-year, too-familiar seasonless lull of warmth between Florida and here and I’ve been overwhelmingly flooded with missing people and...

This weekend changed my life.
Someone got me up at 7 a.m. on Saturday to run errands which included Ikea and then getting running shoes, running shorts and a sports bra. Then we went to run the path on Town Lake. I became a runner (again) this weekend. Baby steps. I’m going to at least make myself run around the block every day (started that today), and I’m aiming to be a morning person again. This goal directly...

I give you this Sun Sentinel article from the year 2000, in which my virginal, naive and oh-so-grown up, just-turned-eighteen senior-year-of-high-school self gets interviewed for an article about romance. You can tell I was not much of a pro on the topic. Or was I? If you scroll past the ads, there’s a second interview with a then-junior from my high school, whose interview —this is...

People like to tell me things but nobody ever asks things. And everyone on my dash is doing the ask thing. So I’m going to jump on that boat and try.
I found an adult advanced tap class that fits into my LIFE and it’s not very far from me at all. My tap shoes are so excited. Seems the past few years they’ve only been used as some sort of proof that yes, I have them and yes, I tap dance/d. YES.
