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…

What I Learned after Four Years of Surrounding Myself with Girl Hate

No one wants to believe that a life can be ruined by a few tweets.

I try to tell them, but they won’t believe me. They won’t believe that 120 characters could do real harm. They are so wrong. Girl hate is real and powerful and I’ve lived in it.

I spent my entire college career living in an all-female dorm as a Resident Assistant. Each year, I saw young women being victimized and victimizing other women. Sometimes, all it took was a single tweet and a resident would pack up… Continue

I is for Island Life

I’m not sure where exactly my affinity for islands came from. Perhaps it started while growing up in Hawaii, or perhaps my being a Pisces has something to do with it. Who knows? What I do know, is that islands have been a significant part of my life for a very long time and that the longer I am on an island the…

[SWP: Behind the Book] Serendipity? Luck? My money is on the message.

When I handed the medical transcriptionist the Ziploc bag containing eight micro-cassettes, she gave me the raised index finger, “Wait a sec, I’ll be right back,” sign.

“We’ll have to get the machine out of the back closet, but I think we can find someone to get these done for you.”

I’d been dictating hospice memories into a hand-held Dictaphone for the last fifteen years. Stop lights, waiting at drive thru's, sitting in the park; I burned to document these stories…

Death Before Dawn, Part Three

What you will read below is a short story in process. Like a film, I've shot all the scenes and written most of the sections deliberately out of sequence. They will be conjoined later, once I have the material I need. Last month I wrote Parts One and Two. To follow is Part Three, but this will probably end up being placed later in the text. Muses aren't always linear.

To remind you, should you wish to read, here is …

A Grateful Writing Life

I am waiting. It’s a common activity for writers. You work on a piece of writing. You finish it. You send it somewhere. You send it to a reader for feedback, you send it to a literary journal for possible publication, or you send it to a literary agent for possible representation. And then you wait. Ideally you work on more writing while you wait.…
