Communicating with Angels

The other day I was standing outside talking on my phone. The sky was a brilliant blue, not a cloud in the sky. The sun was beating down hard on my shoulders. I had just received a call from an interesting stranger. She was offering me the chance to participate in a clinical trial of a new drug to treat my PCOS. My curiosity was peaked. But I didn't like it when she said that…

10 of the Weirdest Movies You’ll Ever Watch

I have a confession to make. I'm a bit of a film snob. I blame it entirely on the masterful teachings of a certain University of Delaware professor who is the most awesome teacher of all time. Since those days of film theory I have never watched a move the same again. Most likely, you won't hear me talking about what a great movie the third installment of The Borne Identity was. If I make…

The Most Romantic Lyrics of All Time

As Valentine's Day quickly approaches, I have been thinking about beautiful music. While my husband, the musician, might disagree, I think that lyrics are equally as important as melody when it comes to making a song beautiful. Lyrics are poems, fragments, thoughts, and feelings bursting from a song and they can really strike a chord in your heart. Here are some of my favorite romantic lyrics. 1. Pink Bullets- The Shins   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3SCXVI87ws 2. Between…

Walk Away

I was sitting in the Chinese Buffett when it came on the radio. It's a song I used to listen to on repeat, sing along with in my car, mascara running down my face. "I keep going right back to the one thing I need to walk away from." At the time Christina Aguilera released her raw, soulful album "Stripped," I was in an unhappy relationship, being cheated on. Looking back, I was just as…

Women Speak: A Poem

Women speak With their eyes. Even if they shake their head "yes" And mean "no" You can see it in their smile. You can see it in their gaze. Women speak With a light touch. With a gentle hug, Or a long pause. You can hear them without words. You can hear them with no sounds. Women speak When other women can't. To fight for what is right. To lend a helping hand. You can…

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

I am losing my hair. I kid you not. Once upon a time I had so much hair I did not know what to do with it. My mother would chase me around the house with a comb and I would scream, "No." Finally, she would wrestle me down and comb through knot after knot of glorious, big, bouncy, black curls. It's ironic really as I was born with not a single hair on my…

Why I Don’t Believe in Perfection

My math teacher in middle school said if you can draw a perfect circle free-handed, you might be a little crazy. That's when he busted out the compass and showed us this nifty tool you can use to draw a perfect circle. I could never draw a circle anywhere close to perfect. I also colored, but never perfectly in the lines. In art class, my art teacher always admired by ability to paint abstract art,…
