What Women Want

What do you want in a man? It's a question that women seem to ask each other only over dinner or while sipping cocktails on a girls night out. But it's actually a question that women ask themselves much more often that--all the time, in fact. 


Learning to Drive

Okay, so think of life as a great big highway where cars speed past one another on their way to their various stops and destinations. And the problems we have are equivalent to car trouble.

Well, I've just spent a week in a pretty big ditch. It was my fault I fell into it, mostly, because I wasn't really watching where I was going and so I didn't do anything to avoid it. Tonight, though, it feels like the tow truck finally arrived and has started lifting my poor little absolutely beautiful white BMW (shut up, this my metaphor) out of the ditch. It'll take some time before I get out completely and even more time to fix the damage caused by the fall, but it feels crazy good to finally be getting somewhere. To finally be getting back on track. 


Avatar Adventure (Fail) Part 2

So it happened again: I did not watch Avatar at IMAX. Dammit!!!!! Among other obscenities I am muttering in my head. Let me tell you how it went.

The Times, They Are A-Changin'

You ever look at a friend of yours--someone near and dear to your heart--and tell yourself, "Damn, I don't know this person anymore"? As though in a span of a few days or weeks or months, they transformed into someone almost completely alien to you? 

And then do you ever look at yourself and ask the same thing?


The Lion's Wish

I got a late Christmas gift today from a friend of mine. It's a tumbler that says:
Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."
