Gank In Her Tank - from my memoir Here Is Everything Fine

Would love some feedback! I miss red ink in online edits, but whatever you got, I'll take. 

VI. Gank In Her Tank

“Gank! Gank in my tank!” she screamed.

I thought these were the words I heard, anyway. It was only five am, and I was between wakefulness and dreaming, dreaming that Mom and I were at the movies.…

You're Worth It!

You’re worth it…time spent on YOU. Yes you are and don’t shake you head no- I can see you from here.

Make the time for you. When a thought crosses your mind like “yeah, I’d like to go to that car show” or “yeah, I know that store is having a one day sale,” but then you turn around and mow the lawn or…

Oh, Betty! I So Get You

“I don’t want you to think I’m a quitter. I’ve fought for plenty in my life. That’s how I know when it’s over. To know when to move on…”

That dialogue from the final season of Mad Men struck like a thunder clap. I nodded instinctively.

While cancer is the elephant in the room for Betty, I couldn’t help but see parallels for infertility. Her rationale is what I came to understand a decade ago:…

Where Do You Look?

Where are you looking? Where do you spend most of your “mental” time?

Do you spend it in the past, reliving old hurts and slights and making those wounds as fresh today as they were years ago? Then are you sad and upset and have difficulty focusing on the tasks at hand?

Or do you look towards the…

I was totally shocked! I don't usually read or get into fantasy, but I read the best fantasy arranged-marriage story ever! what can I say? Arranged marriages are intriguing. The Alliance of Isian by Serena Clarke was not at all what I expected. Much more! If you want to read a sample chapter, visit the author's website at It's well worth your time.

My review: “The Alliance of Isian…

The 5 seasons of life: where do you see yourself?

How many seasons will we each go through?

No one ever really knows…we have seasons that seem to come as quickly as they came and others that seem to last forever.  Some seasons we never imagined that they would come and yet they end up changing us forever.  Even others come and we do not realize the impact they leave until something years later, triggers a memory.

Our lives are built on seasons — the coming and going of people, events, and places.  We are surrounded by the…
