25 Typed Pages: How One School and One Teacher Changed My Life

25 Typed Pages: How One School and One Teacher Changed My Life

I was the first person in my family to graduate from college. It was a huge surprise for all of us. Not because I wasn’t smart or because I wasn’t advised to continue my education. Just because I’d been an actress in NY for many years and had made great strides in my career. I knew almost all of…

Don’t Sell Your House. Do Whatever it Takes But DO NOT Sell YOUR HOUSE!

Don’t Sell Your House. Do Whatever it Takes But DO NOT Sell YOUR HOUSE!

I grew up in Manhattan. That is New York City. Not Brooklyn. Not the Bronx. Not Queens. Not any other borough. Just Manhattan. THE CITY. A small island.

Are You Masculine Enough to be Feminine? Effeminate Men are Sexy!

Are You Masculine Enough to be Feminine? Effeminate Men are Sexy!

My husband could not be anymore of a “man.” A macho, tough, tattooed, spitting, cursing, truck driving man. Really this is true. I met him when I was 14, and he was 16 in New York where we grew up. He hooked me up with his best friend on the first day I met him and disappeared. I dated…

I Don’t Like New Year’s Eve

I Don’t Like New Year’s Eve

I remember when I was little, New Year’s Eve was something to look forward to. My mother made it fun. She baked pigs in a blanket and put out bowls of chips and dip. We kept the TV on New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Dick Clark and got to stay up until midnight. At 11:59 PM and 45 seconds,…

The Most Successful Way to a Lovers Heart … is a Lost Art

The Most Successful Way to a Lovers Heart … is a Lost Art

When I was 11 years old, I bought a red journal that was covered with little Teddy Bears. It had a gold lock and a single gold key. My mom bought it for me, on a rainy Sunday on the corner of Barclay Street at Hallmark. Right across from the Twin Towers. It was one of those things where…

Happy. What is Happy?

Happy. What is Happy?

An Unhappy Perception I hate that Pharrell song, “Happy!” Every time I hear it, I cringe. I want to pull my stereo system out of my car. (Is it even called a stereo system anymore?) I think Pharrell is antagonizing with his lyrics. “Because I’m happy—Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof. Because I’m happy—Clap…
