Your Stories Are Transcendent

Your Stories Are Transcendent

Your stories are all of it: comedy, drama, tragedy, memoir. Your stories are more than just a literal recitation of facts and details.

It really is all here, right now

I celebrated my birthday a few days ago and woke up to this photo, texted to me by my husband (who was in the kitchen making breakfast)…     Dave had staged it the day before and apparently Max willingly went along.

PHONE RINGS, DOOR CHIMES, IN COMES COMPANY! Her name was Debbie. What was I, 11? Maybe 12, when I met her? Yes, that sounds about right. Her older brother was friends with my older brother, and they introduced us. And I remember that I went from not knowing Debbie to knowing Debbie in an instant. … Continue reading
