The Most Haunted Home in the US: The Myrtles Plantation

The Myrtles Plantation–Trip 1 In May 2008, my mom, Linda, and my two sisters took a trip to New Orleans. On their way home they decided to stay a night at the most haunted house in the US, The Myrtles Plantation. My sister, Celeste, was so scared that they left The Myrtles in the early hours of the morning to stay at a hotel down the road. Here are mom’s […]

Wake Up: Reality Gets Messy

In September, school really gets going again, so I wanted to highlight some movies that really got the wheels turning for me. In previous weeks, I highlighted Bully, which scrutinizes a common social problem and makes us think about how we can deal with bullying. I Am examines the big existential questions like “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?” The final documentary I chose really made me think […]

I Am: A Documentary Chock Full of Big Ideas

As Spirit Lady, I love thinking about the nature of reality. Actually, I’m pretty okay with believing there are things that happen in this world that we will never understand. Mystery excites me instead of scaring me (like I think it does to many people). When authorities (like intellectuals, religious leaders, or scientists) come across with an “I know everything” attitude, I always think about all the people throughout history […]

Bully: A Must Watch Film

This month, I’m going to post on some eye-opening movies I’ve seen lately. Bully, a documentary, follows the stories of five families impacted by bullying. This movie brought up a lot of emotion for me. Things have most definitely escalated since I was in school, because I don’t remember kids killing themselves after months–or even years–of being bullied. And I definitely do not remember school officials turning a blind eye […]

Kindergarten and Mommy’s Existential Crisis

My big boy starts Kindergarten today. Whooooppppeeee! Did I just write that? Oh yes I did. I am not one of those moms who will suffer from separation anxiety, but [sigh] I will probably cry because this is a big step. Since becoming a mom nearly six years ago, I have experienced the full spectrum of human emotion on the roller coaster called motherhood. Things I’ve given up: A career […]

Family Closeness: How Do You Bridge Two Continents?

Six. Weeks. My in-laws visited for six weeks! My two reactions: 1) Yay! I’ll have extra help and I can, thank you God, actually leave the house without a kid and an infant. Which equals freedom to write, freedom to visit friends, freedom to go grocery shopping without a million requests for snacks or toys. 2) Oh. That means I’m in charge of anticipating and fulfilling the needs of two […]
