Speaking to Mamas in Prison: A Recap + Release

Speaking to Mamas in Prison: A Recap + Release

Yesterday I did my second talk for The Family Preservation Project Speaker Series inside Coffee Creek, the Oregon State women’s prison. My talk is “Telling Your Life as a Love Story” and I try to illuminate all of the ways the prison system is force feeding them a narrative of shame and regret that will keepContinue Reading

Joy, Pain, + The Medicine of Connection

Joy, Pain, + The Medicine of Connection

The first time I felt a twinge in my left shoulder was around six months ago, right around the time I first heard of a thing called “frozen shoulder”. I was reading A Really Good Day by Ayelet Waldman to learn more about micro-dosing for depression and anxiety and in it, she talked about herContinue Reading

Solid Support for Uncertain Times

Solid Support for Uncertain Times

  There are so many things going through my mind these days.   So many new connections, as well as thoughts on our pandemic lack of human connection, are coming at me rapid fire.   And then there was that whole solar eclipse WTF.   DID YOU SEE IT? WILD! I can’t stop looking atContinue Reading

Roots + Roadtripping

Roots + Roadtripping

Omg, you guys. HELLO. I don’t even know what to do with myself right now. You should see my outfit. I’m wearing my Rocky Balboa sweats with a poncho and a baseball cap. I’ve been gone so long I forgot how to do regular life. Though, arguably, I’m doing it just right with this getContinue Reading

Drive, Motivation, Desire: On Hunger

Drive, Motivation, Desire: On Hunger

  Here is part 3 in this series on Hunger. (Here’s Part 1 + Part 2) Hunger as desire + drive. I can’t think of anything I’ve ever done that wasn’t somehow rooted in the desire to prove to my dad he was wrong about me. Every job, every relationship, every choice I can thinkContinue Reading

Love Might Not Be *All* You Need, But Good Grief It’s Important: On Emotional Hunger

Love Might Not Be *All* You Need, But Good Grief It’s Important: On Emotional Hunger

Last week, as part of an ongoing invitation to overhaul your definition of hunger so we can develop a more allied, than adversarial, relationship with our own hungers, I wrote about physical hunger. This week I’m writing about emotional hunger. In nutrition school I learned an interesting way of conceptualizing nourishment as “primary and secondaryContinue Reading

Invitation to Overhaul Your Definition of Hunger

Invitation to Overhaul Your Definition of Hunger

  We don’t want to be thin because thinness is inherently life-affirming or lovable or healthy. If this were true, there would be no tribes in Africa in which women are fat and regal and long-lived. There would be no history of matriarchies in which women’s fecundity and sheer physical abundance were worshiped.  We wantContinue Reading

Are Depression + Anxiety the New Normal?

Are Depression + Anxiety the New Normal?

  Depression and anxiety might be the new normal for people who feel.   I say that without having done a scientific study, this thought is coming exclusively from my own experience with my life and my contact with clients.   Seems like when living in a culture of fear and diaspora, depression and anxietyContinue Reading

Peace in the Shark Tank

Peace in the Shark Tank

The last couple of weeks have felt like living in a shark tank. Everything that could go wrong has. All the most uncomfortable, unsettling things have come up. Every interaction has been anything but simple. I launched a product last week that hadn’t properly gone through the editing process (my bad) and I had toContinue Reading

How To Be Wildly Helpful To Your Local Single Mother

How To Be Wildly Helpful To Your Local Single Mother

I rarely do PSA’s, but this has been on my mind a lot. Maybe it’s because my son is a teenager now and his autonomy is giving me more space than I’ve had in forever and I’m finally coming out of the great fog of trying to do everything all the time nonstop, and I’mContinue Reading
