Feb
23
What does the word, “declined” mean to you? For me, it conjures up aged imagined scenarios of public shaming: My visa card, unable to take any more mindless spending, rejects my attempt to fill the lack-of-love void, in front of a long line of people at a high-end...

the accidental feminist - must love crows
Feb

I have a confession to make: I didn’t know I was a feminist. I danced around the possibility that my views aired on the side of feminism in the past, but I didn’t realize the extent to which they were until recently. I knew what felt wrong to me: women not being...

More often than not, our new year’s resolutions are directed towards improving our exterior. I am not going to shame that. I think it’s great to want to look and feel great through diet and exercise. I just finished yoga and am eating a bowl of organic something or...
