Our shared humanity pretty much knocks my socks off, but I see it less in life’s big moments–weddings, birthdays, graduations–than in its small ones. Like, while looking for people sleeping in a parking lot at 4:00 a.m. Or in confronting a decidedly unpleasant experience in a biopsy suite at a medical facility. Or in a mother-daughter afternoon spent floating in dark, salty wetness (which I did not enjoy) (but if you don’t have a good time, you have a good story!).
My work has appeared in The Washington Post (op-ed, Solo-ish), The Huffington Post (paid contributor), GoodHousekeeping.com, UpWorthy, HelloGiggles, The Advocate Magazine, YourTeenMag, ParentMap, Parent.Co, SunlightPress, Mom.me, Ravishly, DeRacine Magazine.com, SweatpantsAndCoffee.com, DogsTodayMagazine.co.UK, WritersResist.com (selected for 2018 anthology) and Mamalode.com. Blogher.com named me a 2017 “Voice of the Year” for this piece on gender pronouns.
