My favorite part of the Paleo diet is how actual paleolithic people ate mostly grains.
Paleo, more like faileo.
My Diva Cup deserves a cosmo for all the hard work it does.

I love how much of the PBS late '70s/early '80s programming secretly helped give a little nudge to small children with even minute predisposition to weirdness and wonder.
@Misselthwaite RIGHT I ACTUALLY SQUEALED
Vespoli oh my god I feel like I met a celebrity
@polka dots vs stripes Pocock! Founded 1911 ... so maybe Pocock is Ford and Vespoli is, like, Tesla? Anyhow, Vespoli, yay!
This is fantastic. Thanks, Laura! And Nancy, you sound like a remarkable person -- I can't even imagine having gone through this and not being even a little bitter.
Incidentally, non-rowing people, Vespoli is the bomb: "my father started his own company building boats" more or less = "my great-grandfather Henry Ford founded a car company."

This is lovely. We (my family) used to give a copy of "Oh the Places You'll Go" to all graduating seniors but now I think I'll just give 'em this. Much more helpful.
Moving to New York (way back in the 90s!) absolutely KILLED my creative drive. At the end of the day after the subway, my tedious desk job, the gym the subway again … all I wanted to do was drink, eat or sleep. Plus, everyone is an artist and everyone seemed better than me and when I was young I let that intimidate me.
Leaving was the best thing I ever did. It took me two years to start writing again, but it's happening. It's so much easier to balance life, work, creativity in other places. SO much easier!
