A Note On My Family


Posted on Jun 14, 2018

I was going to write more about EMDR. I’m not going to. I’m going to talk about my Aunt Lottie. My Great-Aunt, my Grandpa’s sister. She’s a humor-point in a lot of my stories about my family.I wish I could share her voice – imagine the voice of an elderly, sweet, somewhat stereotypical New England Jewish lady. She’s a Jewish mother & Grandmother through and through. My mother and I would joke that if someone robbed her house she...

The Word of The Day


Posted on Jun 13, 2018

 There are some words and terms I hate. I’m not talking about the ones that are racist, sexist, or so offensive that we only refer to them by letter- like the F-Bomb, The C-Bomb or the often forgotten Parenthetical-Bomb. This time I am talking about one word in particular. One word that started out as a joke, but now… Now it is just something that really grinds my gears! That word is this: Bromance.   Yes, Bromance. I know what you’re...

I have to be honest. I hate this. I was planning on taking this time to do a lengthy, honest, and kind of geeky post about EMDR therapy. I can’t write about that right now. Why? Is it because I’m having a food hang-over? No (even though I am). Is it because I’m currently binging on Netflix a show about tiny houses? No (even though I am). It’s because I can’t go 30 minutes without having at least one moment...

Everyone – musician, artist, accountant, whatever, – every human has been criticized. I’ve had people call my music shit. Yes, it hurts. Yes, it sucks. Yes, it has happened. And – yes, it will happen again. What do I do after? Sometimes, I wallow. I sit there and pity myself and question my passion, dedication to, and love of music. I hate the person who said it and I hate myself for believing them. One of several...
