New story just published: "Morels"

I am grateful to Dr. Vivekanand Jha for publishing my story "Morels" in the new issue of Phenomenal Literature, out today.

In it a mother and her young son, hunting for mushrooms in the woods, encounter something altogether real and unknown at the same time.

This story holds a special place in my heart, so seeing it published is deeply gratifying.

Read "Morels" here. Read more of this blog post »

Three Women by Lisa Taddeo

GOODREADS READERS CHOICE AWARDS While writing Three Women—and indeed speaking to hundreds of women across the country—the clearest message I heard was the way that women most fear the judgment of other women. We fear telling our sisters and mothers and friends what we want. Especially if what we want is the “wrong” man or the wrong woman or the wrong career or the wrong food. It’s not for me, or anyone, to draw conclusions about one another’s life. But I do believe it is our responsibility, as readers and as human beings, to listen. I wanted to tell stories of real people, from their ...more

Welp, I have a new favorite novel and this is it.

The narrator's presence is such that his solitary observations are so often in the same vein as those secret or at least unshared connections we make for ourselves. The way he notices hedgehogs of moss

“I consider love to be the matrix for this transformation, which calls new being into existence. Love has the power to reawaken and bring to the fire what has been entombed or distorted by traumatic forces or has retreated out of defensiveness and self-protection. Without love and compassion for the fragility of human identity in the face of death and the reality of evil, the madness found in these barren spaces of the soul might not be meaningfully encountered. For the stripping away of the constricting cocoon of traumatic fixations and the untangling of what has become distorted and convoluted during painful traumatization, love is needed.”
Ursula Wirtz, Trauma and Beyond: The Mystery of Transformation

“Who knows how things happen when one is on a quest or writing a book? It is as if one searches and searches and then, if one can move past the ego's demands and is lucky, sometimes a space opens where books seem to fall open in one's lap and things and people appear, as if magically, to help. Some call it synchronicity or being in the flow; I find it to be a blessed, though often short-lived, state of grace for which I am deeply grateful.”
Claire Douglas, The Old Woman’s Daughter: Transformative Wisdom for Men and Women

C.G. Jung
“I should advise you to put it all down as beautifully & as carefully as you can—in some beautifully bound book. It will seem as if you were making the visions banal—but then you need to do that—then you are freed from the power of them. . . . Then when these things are in some precious book you can go to the book & turn over the pages & for you it will be your church—your cathedral—the silent places of your spirit where you will find renewal. If anyone tells you that it is morbid or neurotic and you listen to them—then you will lose your soul—for in that book is your soul.”
C.G. Jung, Visions: Notes of the Seminar Given 1930-1934

Edna St. Vincent Millay
“Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night. I miss you like hell.”

“Life never misses an opportunity to upscuttle us, I think. Life likes to tell us it told us so.”
