That Kind of Morning

It’s that kind of Tuesday morning which really should be a Sunday. It rained all night and now the valley smells rich and mossy. My sheets are freshly washed and perfectly crisp, beconing me back to bed. The pot is brewing with more coffee than I can drink in my hectic scramble to get outContinue reading “That Kind of Morning”

Made in China

It begins, the trip that tests if I’m actually qualified for the job I have. When Sheryl Sandberg told women to use our power to “Lean In” she didn’t address what happens next. How do I go from landing the dream job and impressing my colleagues to actually believing all the hype about myself? DoesContinue reading “Made in China”

Not a Victim

When I tell people about places I’ve been, or where I’m going, I occasionally get “The Look”. The Look is that face of disapproval that screams, “Do you want to be raped, murdered, sold into sexual slavery, and then dumped into a septic tank?” It’s a rhetorical and silent question, but if I had theContinue reading “Not a Victim”

Cynical Naïvete

I am terminally naïve, in a cynical sort of way. I believe that if someone is nice to my face, they will be so behind my back.  I believe that if I am kind and genuine to others, that they will return the favor. And, I trust in the abundance of the universe to protect me fromContinue reading “Cynical Naïvete”

She Who Gossips

I hate the phrase catty. I find it insulting, genderist, and diminishing to all women. But, sometimes a bitch and a cat have to get into a little scrape – and rare is the cat who comes out the winner in that battle. Growing up, my mother always said, “He who gossips with you willContinue reading “She Who Gossips”

The Buffer Day

One o’clock on a Friday afternoon is a perfectly reasonable time to depart from Salt Lake City International Airport en route to the lush green countryside of England. The airport is busy and fully staffed but not yet crowded with weekend warriors and the commuting execs have already cleared out of the Priority security lanes,Continue reading “The Buffer Day”

Every moment was a moment

Before right now … in this quiet space where I recuperate there was Sound and Fury ~ of little significance. And I listened. Then there was an opportunity here, a chance to bust my ass there – and a career emerged. So, I worked, and waited, and volunteered for everything! … and eventually luck steppedContinue reading “Every moment was a moment”
