introducing….postcard sets! now for sale over in my etsy shop. many of my out of town friends know how much i love to send postcards. i just do. they’re quick and friendly and i can be sweet and short and to the point which is often: i miss you. not sure why i haven’t thought of offering my own postcards before (have i mentioned that i’m sometimes slow to catch on) but here i am, doing just that.
i spent the day as a social worker in radiation oncology. whenever i’m there i meet brave, brave souls, showing up for their lives in the most serious of ways, yet some with such perspective and clarity and ease and humor. i answer their questions, counsel them, meet with their families, provide resources, and simply try very hard to be a speck of goodness and helpfulness in the span of their visit. at the end of the day i leave the building more thankful, more saddened, more uplifted, more heavy, more persuaded by humanity and courage. my social work roots, as conflicting as they are to me sometimes, still inform everything i do. and i’m really thankful for that.
for tv, specifically so you think you can dance? totally hooked.

for my mom who left an enthusiastic voice mail for me today after receiving a special something (hi, mom) in the mail.
for brand new pajamas given to me by my bff last week. i have a tendency to hold on to pajama sets for years and years and it was time to finally let my beloved raggedy set go and embrace a new, cleaner pair of pjs. thank you, gina!
speaking of pajamas, i’m in my new ones right now as i type this post from my living room, sitting on the red couch, bare feet propped up on the leather chair in front of me. it’s dark, and my farsighted vision is very, very tired. where are you right now? i’d love to know the scene….
