Winding Down

December 28, 2012

43

As we move forward in life and these years wind down, I find myself – perhaps typically – nostalgic and pensive about the present, past and future. The past year has been a roller coaster of life. Births and deaths, triumphs and well… non-triumphs. And all through it I am grateful to have remained sober. […]

Help Me Decide! Excerpt for Literary Death Match…

October 9, 2012

33

Just checking in to do a quick poll and get everyone’s input. I’m reading an excerpt from “I am Jennie” tonight in a Literary Death Match at Largo in Los Angeles (link provided below). I have seven minutes to WOW the judges and audience, and pummel my literary competitor into the ground. I have a […]

“And The Day Came…”

October 4, 2012

32

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom” - Anaïs Nin A day came, and the risk was to remain tight or blossom. What an interesting dichotomy. I’m sure I’ve written about this quote at some point in my blogging career, […]

Commitment

August 13, 2012

55

I need to make a solid commitment to and at this blog. Just like I bring the literature in one of my women’s meetings each week, it’s important that I begin updating this space regularly. Not simply because it is good to regularly update a regularly updated blog, but because I know this kind of […]

“If you bring out what is in you, what you bring out will save you. If you fail to bring out what is inside you, what you fail to bring out will destroy you.” from the Gnostic Gospel of St. Thomas via Brendan (many thanks for this…) The day begins with coffee and a swivel […]

Release the Kraken

July 12, 2012

108

The book released two days ago. I haven’t thrown up on a single person/thing or in a single inappropriate place. I haven’t even thrown up in an appropriate place. Stomach contents have stayed content. Wonderful feelings really. Absolutely wonderful. Wonderful feelings mixed with paralyzing fear, that melts back into surreal wondrousity. Yup. Made up a […]

Nerves: The Watery Mouth, Wait, I’m Going to Barf, Feeling.

July 9, 2012

91

Racked with nerves. Trying desperately to remain unattached. I am not going to read any reviews lest I may believe all of them. Bullshit. Already read one. It was good. Still don’t want to believe it because if that review is right then so are the ones that will say it is bad, which I’m […]

Pre-order Special Details!

June 25, 2012

18

All right. So, in my last post, I mentioned that I would have the details for a special pre-order deal. Pre-order deal time! If you pre-order the book, not only will you get $11.00 off the hardcover price (13.76 nstead of 24.99!), but for the first 100 people who send a screenshot of the receipt […]

Count the Coincidences

June 15, 2012

48

As the year progresses on, I find myself overcome with the emotions that accompany great success, the great unknown, and a power greater than myself hard at work. If ever I have struggled with accepting that power as greater than myself – as I once did and hesitantly renamed it gravity – I now can […]

The Last Days

April 30, 2012

27

We move this week. FINALLY. Slow down Jennie, just slow down. We’ve been wanting to move for quite some time, and tomorrow is the official day we can enter our new home and call it ours. We’ve had the keys for a few days now, and dropped off a few things, but nothing so big […]

SurvivingRape.Org… She’s alive

April 21, 2012

17

My original intent was to wait until I had a more well rounded website so that when viewers came, it was adequate in it’s resources and comments, etc. However, taking into account the inherently communal nature I wish to foster within the site, I think it’s best that I release it to the world now. […]

An Adventure in Healing

April 12, 2012

29

I have taken on the most incredible adventure. No, not recovery of the kind may think, but of a larger recovery, a bigger plan, something so big and so large that it keeps me up at night with the potential good that may come of it. I have decided to start a non-profit organization that […]

Giving Thanks

November 24, 2011

24

For all my life, I would like to give thanks. For the hard days that were sprinkled amidst the best, I would like to give thanks. For the tears that were shed, infrequently, and between laughter and joy, I would like to give thanks. For the family I once had, and the family I have […]
