Playing in the soft warm ashes of a once hot love

A few months ago, my cousin Jen sent me a link to a Jack White song. She heard it on the radio as she was pulling into her driveway and ended up just sitting there, stunned and enthralled – train-wreck style. I want love To…

If I had a million dollars would I buy your love?

If I had a million dollars would I buy your love?

I can’t get the line “If I had a million dollars, I’d buy your love” (from the Barenaked Ladies song) out of my head. It reminds me of the rising trend of sugar daddy’s and sugar mommies. A sugar daddy/mommy is an older, well-established person…

Jessie’s Boy

Jessie’s Boy

I bought my husband the funniest New Yorker cartoon birthday card. A middle-aged guy is hunched over on the edge of a bed in a hotel room speaking to his wife on the phone.  It is late at night, he is still in his shirt…

Not on the same page

Not on the same page

The New York Times arrives every Sunday. I madly rifle through all the sections in search of the only one that matters. Sunday Styles. And, it’s not even the entire section that I crave with the frenzy of a meth addict. My weekly fix is…

Blue, pink and rainbow work

Blue, pink and rainbow work

I’ve always been closet jealous of my lesbian couple friends. A lesbian partner doesn’t have to translate that “please don’t get me anything for my birthday” really means “surprise me with something big”; or beg their partner to stop for directions when they have unintentionally…
