REVELANCE in life is wondering if you matter at all. Are you living an authentic life? Do you make the world a better place, or at least provide comic relief? What’s your connection with others? Do you evolve?


How To Get A Red Dress

This year my husband and I decided not to celebrate Valentine’s Day as per our usual bah humbug practice. At the last minute, I suggested we meet me for lunch, as that was the only meal we were going to have that day without the children. In an uncharacteristic stab at romance, I decided to […]


42 Days Smokefree

I’m Smokefree! Well, it’s Day 42 into the New Year. I haven’t smoked a single cigarette or even had a single craving, since I’m not a smoker.

2013 Will Be My Year- Let’s Do This I have a certain pre-nostalgia for the year 2013 because it has my favorite number in it. Is that stupid? Even if it is, I think it’s better to go into the year thinking it’s going to be a banner one instead of a ball breaker. I’m […]


When a Liberal Feminist Shoots Guns

Newsflash: Liberal Feminist Shoots Guns! In some respects, going to a shooting range was exactly what I thought it would be. Dodge Ram trucks and Ford pick-ups in masculine colors lining the parking lot in which there were few open spots. Demonstrably male, palpably macho, undeniably white. Louis C.K. does a hilarious stand-up bit about there not […]
