Caring for yourself

on June 29, 2020

You know the adage about putting on your own oxygen mask before helping others, right? We’ve all heard that line during the safety demonstration on airplanes and I can’t think of any time when it’s more apt than right now. And I can’t think of any time when it’s harder. Taking time to look after… Read More

Just a few thoughts

on May 31, 2020

Things have been so heartbreaking recently. Not just recently, of course, but they seem so much WORSE right now. I have a small platform which, to me, means I have to use it for good.

Breathe.

on April 3, 2020

So many adjustments, right? I already worked from home, but figuring out how to get groceries and other supplies is a bit of a trick. (We’re doing grocery delivery to keep the stores as empty as possible and avoid possibly bringing anything home to my parents.) We already subscribed to Sun Basket and Daily Harvest… Read More
