Get To Know…

Tracy_blue

So today I’ve decided to take a moment to introduce a very lovely (and talented) author friend of mine named Tracy. I promised her way back in February to do a piece on her newest book “Drive Me Crazy” and totally dropped the ball (because I suck.) So I’m trying desperately to make it up to her in the only way I know how. Giving her shit away. (Maybe I should have said that with more finesse…hmm…) Anywho, Tracy (who is known by way too many names to count. Tessa Adams, Tracy Deebs, Tracy Wolff…Ivy…etc) is probably one of the coolest people I […]

Your Wish Is My Command

20624580

One of the most precious gifts we have is free will. Because (as Madeleine Albright says:) “What people have the capacity to choose, they have the ability to change.” But what  if choice was never even an option for you? Someone says, “Jump!” and you scream back, “How high?” The meer thought of disobeying causes debilitating pain. Any command, be it kidnapping, arson, murdering a member of your very own family MUST be obeyed. Suicide? Out of the question. Confessing to the local authorities? Nope. Good old fashioned avoidance? Instant pain. What would you do? How would you live? Me? […]

Mistakes Make The World Go Round

20813437

  There is this quote by poet Fernando Pessoa that says: “In order to understand, I destroy myself.” At one point in my life, I thought this was the only genuine way to live. Self-destruct…learn the lesson. After a string of bad choices, with equally bad consequences, I finally realized that that way of living was incredibly unhealthy. Despite the lessons I learned. (And believe me…they were vast.) But that’s life isn’t it? A series of results based solely upon our choices. Some of us are optimist. We make lemonade. (And all that jazz.) But the rest of us, we […]
