September 15, 2011

In writing, being truthful almost always requires a small amount of fiction.

My therapist thinks if I can figure out what I want, then I can go and get it, but I’ve already obtained everything I wanted.

Best of 30POV: Mamas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Serial Killers

Bestie #5 comes from yours truly. That’s probably all I should say.

Native Values: Teaching the Sins of our Forefathers

Teachers are supposed to be saints, but I’ve sinned plenty in the three short years I’ve been a professor.

We should all be concerned. One by one, our freedoms are being taken from us. Our behavior is being censored, our thoughts silenced. Without {text} there is nothing.

Thank You, and then some…
