Ask me anything

It may seem like we live in a pretty messed up world, but in day to day life, there are these small miracles, these small encounters that are orchestrated just for us to see how perfect our lives could be in one Name. I simply hope to capture them.

The Letters From No One

The Letters From No One

So while Im still trying to finish my rewrite of  ‘Letters From London” which as this blog title might show you, I’m completely frustrated with the fact that it’s taking forever to get back into the swing of things, I’m reading… a lot.

I recently finished a book I got signed at the New York Teen Author Festival in NYC this past spring titled Side Effects May Vary. I only name drop the festival…

The Boy (well Girl) who Lived

The Boy (well Girl) who Lived

I’ve haven’t been blogging lately because I’ve been up to some major mischief… between getting work promotions and reading and attending Librarian conferences I’ve been busy, but I haven’t let go of the blogging thoughts for too long.

Today marks the start of a magical time of the year… Harry Potter month! Meaning… His birthday is this month so we celebrate it all month. Chelsea and I will do our…

You Fancy huh?

My First Year in College

The article above was an amazing find.  It takes a look at how 12 college students in NYC change over the course of one year. My favorite “transformation” is the second girl Emily Morrison. She doesn’t look like she transformed much over a year, but the significance is found in her tattoo.

I GOT A TATTOO THIS YEAR. This is the number of miles from Jacksonville to…

I only feel close to people who arouse my energy, who make enormous demands of me, who are capable of enriching me with experience, pain, people who do not doubt my courage, or my toughness. People who do not believe me naive or innocent, but who challenge my keenest wisdom, who have the courage to treat me like a woman in spite of the fact that they are aware of my vulnerability.
To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.

The Vanishing Glass

No that’s not an autograph by J.K.  Rowling herself… but this was a huge cool moment this part weekend at the American Library Association Annual Conference held here in Las Vegas. It was amazing to get to pay $35 and meet authors and grab copies of their books and see so many people interested in reading and making an impact to get others to do the same all in one place.

But it also left me…

Hipsters Should Hate Pizza

Hipsters Should Hate Pizza

photo-1

I’m calling for the ban of pizza. For 6 months… we need to ban pizza from my friendship circles until 2015. 

I know it sounds extreme but it’s started to plague every social event. The greasy thick oil encrusted bread, topped with only tomato sauce, melted cheesy that’s not even stringy when you pull it apart and a small amount of pepperoni, haunts every social event: birthday parties, friday…

That’s Not How You Do It

That’s Not How You Do It

“I unfriend you”

“That’s not how this works”

I laughed so hard when i saw this commercial the other night…and yes I know I’ve seen it many times before. Yet, I had a friend recently tell me that you can’t just declare the end of friendships and when I saw this commercial I died laughing, because the old lady saying “that’s not how…

It’s funny: I always imagined when I was a kid that adults had some kind of inner toolbox full of shiny tools: the saw of discernment, the hammer of wisdom, the sandpaper of patience. But then when I grew up I found that life handed you these rusty bent old tools - friendships, prayer, conscience, honesty - and said ‘do the best you can with these, they will have to do’. And mostly, against all odds, they do.
