Dream Lover

Thursday, January 4th, 2018


Picture this: I’m somewhere, in a situation with a really sexy guy and I am so turned on that I know what’s coming. But then… The guilt clicks in. Oh did I mention? This is a dream.  Yes, a dream. So, tell me. Why is it that I can’t enjoy a good, honest to God sexy dream without feeling guilty?

You Can’t Always Get What You Want – Luckily

Friday, December 31st, 2010

You read lots of stories about people’s dreams being fulfilled, but I always want to know about the things we think will make us happy, but really won’t.

Sure, Barbra Streisand probably loves the money she makes, but she obviously isn’t having much fun with it, living in seclusion and hiding from her fans. And you can bet Princess Di rued the day she became royalty, though who wouldn’t wish for that? But, bringing it back to me (which is really what I always do, no?), I’ve been thinking about the things I wanted, growing up; the things I thought would make me happy. (more…)

Not that it had anything to do with my task, but you know how your mind starts to wander. Well, after this huge snow storm I had a ton of snow to shake off and lots of time to think.

Those Aren’t Fighting Words, Dear

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

This is an absolutely incredible and eye-opening story about a woman dealing with her husband’s midlife crisis, published last week in the New York Times Modern Love column.

Those Aren’t Fighting Words, Dear
by Laura A. Munon

But wait. This isn’t the divorce story you think it is. Neither is it a begging-him-to-stay story. It’s a story about hearing your husband say “I don’t love you anymore” and deciding not to believe him. And what can happen as a result.

If you’ve been there, worry about getting there or think you’ll never be there, read this. I mean it.
