The Almighty Point

Posted February 15th, 2019

“What’s the point of doing it if it’s not good?” She asked. I hear that question so often from clients. Hell, I ask that question so often, myself. So I can appreciate first-hand, how every slight detour or deviation from our “normal” day to day operations are often met with an elaborate vetting system with plenty of checks and balances and hoops to jump through […]

Can I Really Want This?

Posted February 12th, 2019

There is a deep and keen noticing in this space, and it descends upon you like a mist that completely soaks your clothing without it raining—an awareness of something that saturates your consciousness in a manner of minutes. This is the place were instincts wake up and want to govern, like a feral part of you that has followed a scent on the wind, and […]

The Other Way

Posted February 8th, 2019

When I was a little girl, I used to loll on my bed looking up at the ceiling when I was supposed to be getting up and getting ready for school. I used to wonder about things, looking up at that blank expanse of nothingness, untainted by nail holes, finger prints or scuff marks. I used to imagine what it would be like if the […]

Posted November 21st, 2018

There I was, just minding my business on the northern line of London’s underground on vacation with my family and BOOM—I see it. Validation of everything I had been working toward all these years. As we pull up to the Euston platform, the doors open, revealing this massive, not-to-be-missed sign that simply read: “When women tell their stories loudly and clearly, things change for the […]

Pebbles In My Shoe

Posted July 7th, 2018

Someone once wrote about me in an interview, observing that “it seems she never stops thinking, considering, fitting pieces together.” That woman got me, she did. She described how I move (“she talks with her hands and her arms, radiating exuberance…”) and didn’t seem surprised to learn that I was always writing in my head, jotting down notes to myself mid-sentence and had my next […]
