getting things done

This is really ridiculous, but I totally love Getting Things Done. I am obviously not the first person to make this particular assertion (read here, here & here to start), but it’s still ridiculous. For me. I am not a CEO. I am not a businesslady. I am not a business student. I have never […]

crazy and crazy

Coming closer to a year living in Boston, a year post-move, and I am feeling waves of urgency pulling me here to write some things about it, about my life now, about my life before, about this crazy, crazy year of my life. But then I can’t decide what to write. For now, a poorly […]


Alert! I used to have a mullet. Well, now that we’ve got that out of the way… Bulletin #1: Until September 1, I only have two responsibilities – Show up to Work, Show up to Internship. It’s pretty much 9 to 5, five days a week, but really, the hard part is Showing Up. Bulletin […]

jamaica plain

Tuesday, July 6, 2010 Boston, Massachusetts Jamaica Plain On the last official day of vacation, I decided to go to work. (ahem) But then I took to the T home at noon, and found myself at the Sam Adams Brewing Company, taking my third brewery tour in twelve months. Tour number two for those two […]


Monday, July 5, 2010 Gloucester, Massachusetts Whale Watching Tour You guys ever heard of Groupon? Oh, you guys. I Grouponed some tickets for a four-hour whale watching tour, 25 bucks a head. We drove madly through Boston to make our appointment, and by 1:00, we were on board, and cans of beer were only 2.75! […]

country superstar fireworks

Sunday, July 4, 2010 Boston, MA The Esplanade On Saturday, Lance and I had to leave. I forgot to tell my Grandpa until I was going to bed the night before. He was shocked. I was shocked! But we had places to go, people to pick up from D.C, and fireworks to watch. And boy, […]


Friday, July 2, 2010 Sunset Beach The Ocean We returned, this time with SPF 30. Lotion, not a spray can. The waves were awesome, they had a Rumba at the gas station on the way in, and we made fun of Dorothy’s cross-country tan a lot. I promise you, the sunburn looked a lot better […]

get your ankles wet

Wednesday, June 30, 2010 Sunset Beach, North Carolina The Ocean On Tuesday, we went to the beach. On Tuesday night, we all developed sunburns. On Wednesday, we settled for a walk. A clothed walk. On an overcast day. Lance said, “Let’s come back for a swim tonight! A night swim!” We forgot, and went to […]

long and lonesome

Friday, June 25, 2010 Monday, June 28, 2010 Saturday, July 3, 2010 The Highway Called Life 2002 Saturn LS Some forty hours in the car, most of them boring. Except when we got a flat tire under an overpass in the Bronx, (Thanks for handling that, Lance) And when we saw a Mormon Temple! Take […]


Sunday, June 27th 1:30 p.m. Washington D.C. National Portrait Gallery On a break from conferencing, a visit to my favorite D.C. museum with my family who, the day previous, had started a very specific photographic series. We caught on quickly.
