Month: February 2021
Friends to the Rescue
It’s been 27 years since I lived through the devastating earthquake in Northridge, California. You would think after two decades the memories would be diminished, but in fact, they make my heart beat faster, and create an almost panic feeling of helplessness. It triggers my need to flee, quickly. But there is often no place… Continue reading Friends to the Rescue

A friend asked what I had gained during the past year of the pandemic, and my response was immediate: “Weight, that’s what I’ve gained from Covid 19.” And it sucks, as in slurping down food. Certainly other emotional traumas have surfaced in the past 12 months, but more pounds draping my body seem to be… Continue reading Covid-19 Gains
