Oh, Universe in Never Say Never

I ended last year and began this one with one intent: Find something new in old spaces. This started in the fall with a return to basics in my yoga classes. I slowed it was the fuck down and chal...

For Fuck's Sake in Never Say Never

The title of this diary is Never Say Never. How apropos. I don’t know if I will return to OD as a paid service, but I’ll think about it. I felt violent about the news initially. Now I just feel s...


Liz is among the first two to arrive. “Liz has a very strong core,” the woman who rolls Liz into the chapel tells me. Liz has on pink socks with sandals and a navy blue jacket. She just has the o...

Africa TK in Never Say Never

I am working on a day-by-day of Africa (in my head). There’s so much to process about there and so much to catch up on here. But it’s coming. You’ll not be surprised that it was wonderful in ever...

Not That Single in Never Say Never

At the end of a brilliant evening, spent dazzling hostesses and fellow theater-goers and the waitstaff at dinner with our full-on formalwear and giant smiles, I ask him if he’s really divorced. H...

Sunday in Never Say Never

Another Patrick dream. Same sad ilk. That energy is lingering. A text from S’s friend M asking a question that could only be related to S still stirring over me. That energy is lingering. Reject...

the funeral. in Never Say Never

So I went to the funeral. And I am so glad I did. Not only did I get to support my friend and send a very strong message to S, I got to experience something that was surprising and emotional and ...


Crying about losing their vacation time. LITERALLY CRYING ACTUAL TEARS AT WORK ABOUT THIS. I am really really sorry that you are unable to manage your time through the year and/or take care of yo...


I’ve told you there is a deep, deep silence in the space where S once stood. It’s like I am dead to him. From an energetic perspective, there just is none. It’s a strange experience. I miss him b...


Friday morning. Up earlier than I intended but it’s OK because I was in bed later than I intended (still a shockingly early hour for most of you!). I slept poorly, however, with terrible dreams. ...


Family: Dad compared himself favorably to Donald Trump. I left the next morning. Grandparents are so old and mostly housebound. Not sure there is a point at this point. There is no real joy or ac...

Work Day in Never Say Never

Friday Funday in Never Say Never

I am working from home today. Thank god. I just need to have a day where I can work quietly. I share an office with two other people now – no walls, or cubes, just desks – and the chatter and mov...

Nine Things in Never Say Never

I can barely tell the difference between Rhett Miller and Frank Turner on some songs. Other songs I can’t tell the difference at all. It’s odd. S has been really really really trying. It’s been g...


I went alone, for those who don’t know. I asked a few people if they wanted to join. None could. So I went alone. Which is fine. I guess. I was looking forward to isolating. Looking forward to sl...


Is the worst. I am a gush of anxiety. Sick to my stomach. Wracked with dread. Covered in jitters. Filled with don’t wanna. Going home to an instability that I cannot seem to shake. A meanness tha...

New York Poem in Never Say Never

New York was a 9. It was a palate cleanser. It was an important time. It was piles of food and an ocean of wine. It was hugs and laughs and choking back tears. It was sex in a hotel. Holding hand...


lately for the things I miss. My job at DailyCandy. The Pleidas. My poodle.

June 25 in Never Say Never

Yesterday was a 7. But I am fat and tired so everything right now feels like more of a 5. I’ve been tired a lot lately. And I have gained a few pounds. Last week I worked out 10 hours, which is a...


Work is hell right now. I am trying to mitigate my feelings of anxiety with these lists. The scale is down. The pups are lovely. My hair is loooong. My boss is nice. I had a nice walk-and-talk la...
