I love a good wedding, and I was at a great wedding on Saturday. The bride, my cousin – who is stunning on a bad day – looked so beautiful she actually glowed. I’ve read about people “glowing” before and always thought it was hyperbole, but I can’t think of any other word to describe…… Continue reading Wedding Daze
In the early hours of the morning, if you walk the streets of Ubud, you will find people sitting on the stoops of their houses or stores, nimbly weaving dried palm leaves together into little containers. The first day I saw this, I watched them do it and wondered about their silent, skilled work. These…… Continue reading Being Thankful in Bali, Indonesia

I am actually in Mexico as I type this, and I’m typing it on my phone, at the bar. I’ve had one Bahama Mama and one Electric Lemonade, and if you know me then you know that’s quite enough to have me enthusiastically humming Disney villain songs loudly and in public.* Currently, I’m on Poor…… Continue reading Thoughts on… Spending Monday in Mexico
I have a housemate called Lenny. I don’t know when he moved in. He lives in the bathroom. I noticed him for the first time the other day. I opened the door, turned on the light, and there he was. “Oh.” I said. “Hi.” He froze, then ran for cover. He hid in the corner…… Continue reading New and Unexpected Housemate
I may not be active on the dating scene, but I am aware that the times they are a-changing and these days it’s all about the swiping.
