What I Don’t Want to Tell You About Turning 50 (but Will)

It’s no secret to those closest to me that I was absolutely dreading the most ridiculous three words I’ve ever had to type: my 50th birthday. The big five O. The F word. The new 40. It didn’t matter which way I said it to myself in my head. It didn’t matter how humorously I tried to ‘dress’ […]

me too solidarity tag woman with big eyes and tears

To The Women I Nearly Shamed with my Silence: Me Too

  I have a confession: when I saw the Me Too (#MeToo) solidarity status on a friend’s Facebook wall I mentally turned the other way. I think in all the years I’ve been blogging, I’ve only written two posts that I felt uncomfortable writing but knew I had to. One was about my then 12 year […]
