My Cat Died Today

We’ve had a lot of animals over the years, only one that died outside of a vet’s office–Lucky, a creamsicle-orange delight that wandered into a pair of aggressive dogs down the street when I was a […]

Janay Palmer

I love words. One word, a combination of words, abstract or mainstream algorithm. For me a simple email can be a lyrical snakecharmer, uncoiling and replenishing repressed desire.

I watched Girls today on DVR (is there any other way to watch anything?) and I loved it. Particularly the last scene, in which Adam and Hannah are taking a bubble bath together. I can’t think of a better way to close out the day.

Here forward I will persevere, because I am a strong woman and I’m dedicated to making your time with me a little more thought-provoking.
