Love You Too...

It’s amazing how three little words can change your life. I spent my whole life taking love for granted. It was something I didn’t have to go looking for, it was always just there. I had an enthusiastically loving mother, she would say the words every day. She would text, email, write notes and make up songs. Love oozed from her pores. As a child it mortified me. I would wipe away her cheek kisses and mumble “love you too” in a mocking tone.  When I reached my twenties and thirties I would…

Common themes: Home and family in life and literature

roussel house

Do we ever really think about what first piques our interest in a particular subject? Whether it’s history or science or literature or society or food, we tend to generalize our initial interest in a topic or hobby – “it was in my early 20s” or “sometime in my youth” or “when I heard about it from a friend.” But do we really think through the very thing that truly led us to want to learn more, do more, and find more out about something that intrigued us? And do we stop to…

Vignettes From Cowabunga

In a past life I lived and sailed on a sailboat for 10 years with my husband and our two young boys aboard Cowabunga, our 42-foot "ketch" (two masts). We first moved onboard in 1980 and we set sail from Bordeaux, France, in 1982, arriving in Bodega Bay, north of San Francisco, California, in 1990.

Our boys, Sean and Brendan, were 3 years old and 5 months old when we set sail. We first moved on board when Sean was 1, and Brendan soon followed a week after his birth. The first time they…

History in a Tin Box

  

Writing became my way of breathing life into the girl on the cover of The Sweetness, the novel inspired by my family’s complicated history. I learned about her unexpectedly, years ago, on a dark, December afternoon while visiting my elderly aunt in Brooklyn─ where she’d lived for nearly fifty years.

It was on one of these visits when she took an old cookie tin from the hall closet and placed it on the oilcloth. Hoping it contained…
