Flaquito

1. My two Argentinian friends. Esteban and Santiago. Even now their names are like honey in my mouth. I meet them one day by the store near the pista, the main road. They are carting home Maguey logs to make drums to sell on the street. Today they will hollow out the wood. Tomorrow they…

Swan Island

Here is a melodramatic poem about a guy. Because sometimes, making good art is too high a standard to hold. And because, sometimes, the cheesiest, most cliché, stories are also the most true. Swan Island . I saw you in your car once. Getting on the interstate to Swan Island. It was after we had…

Facebook Debates

Someone I think is cute sent me a facebook request. So I did what I assume, but have never confirmed, a lot of people do. I went to my page to see what they would see and day dream about what they might think of me. It’s not right to say that I have insomnia….

The Perils of Righteousness

Hello Friends. My School, the Process Work Institute, is accepting applications for their master’s program in Process-Oriented Facilitation this fall October, 2017.

Process Oriented…

The Traveler

Sometimes I miss myself. Where am I? Not out there. All those places of far-flung wildness where I went searching. Digging around for something I had no words for. No. Right here. Right here. All here. Except for that part of me, that persistent and necessary part of me, that’s still in all those places…

Dating

I’ve been dating a lot. It’s new and interesting territory for me. I’ve always been a black and white kinda girl. Not liking anyone and then getting intensely obsessed with one person for years. In dating there is a lot of gray. A lot of ‘I like some things about you….’ ‘what DOES my body…

The Musician 

We don’t see each other often and so I take pleasure in the preparation. Night time languid at the mirror. A few extra minutes with make up. Freshly shaved. Sensitive. Stimulated. Even by the rub of my jeans.   .   Because I do not love him I love to watch him move around the…

True Fulfillment

Where do we turn when we are feeling unhappy and unsatisfied? It is easy to go looking around in our life for the cause of our feelings, but the sources may be in our lack of connection to something outside our day-to-day lives. Maybe true fulfillment comes from being with our unique connection to something…

Ageism

Attraction or Projection?

I made this video about attraction on a weird day that couldn’t decide if it wanted to rain or shine. CHECK OUT THE VIDEO HERE!
