“There are more things in heaven and heart than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” -Hamlet

I’m thinking about adding Vitamin C infusions into my healing mix activities.

Two of my oncologists think it’s ridiculous. One of them thinks it doesn’t do harm, so why not? Jaimie...

I did a bit of trolling over the weekend. 

I guess it technically wasn’t trolling. I was simply stating facts. But still, I engaged in an online political tete a tete that made me feel exhilarated and a little dirty at the same time. 

Here’s what happened.

There’s a section in my play, Stages: 

The outpouring of support was unbelievable. People were sending me thoughts and prayers and vibes. Telling me if I needed anything not to hesitate to ask. I wanted to take them up on it but for totally random things:

“Hey could I ge...

I’ve never liked accepting my own limitations. I always thought limitations were something to break out of. To free yourself from. Like the slogan of some Planet Fitness rip off:
