Stella

In an effort to write more often, our professor assigned us to keep a journal of things we observe in our world.

A class of incredible writers to surround myself with doesn't hurt, either. Our first assignment was so much fun I decided to share! This piece... Continue Reading →

No.

I was scrolling through Pinterest again--somehow this often sparks me to write mental health pieces. But I saw this quote and thought, "Are you supposed to do all of these things in one day?

4am//4pm

4pm// The pending. Reach for coffee (“but it’s just a little one”). Sly and percolated, the idea of a nap. The nannies are tired. They wish their kids were too. 2am for the cardiologist beneath blackout curtains, forehead stamped with ownership from the face shield. Gently polishing wine glasses behind the bar with music blasting... Continue Reading →

Written mostly in the spring.My personal holding pattern looks like waking up seven minutes before work, afternoon naps on the couch, wandering around Trader Joe’s with no plan, and drinking a beer in the shower while listening to “clubby” music.It’s one of those times...
