If you lived here

September 14th, 2007

When I stepped outside the door a few months ago I was hoping to run into some familiar faces. That I did, but I also nosed around the neighborhood and discovered the most fascinating strangers right next door. You’re invited to a block party this weekend to mingle with:

Anonymous Mama – who writes about biracial marriage, autism, love, longing, and every sort of addiction between s and x with such power, passion and truth that she regularly singes my eyebrows. She brings us a main course every time she drops by.

Rabbi Mommy – who flavors her cooking with unexpected combinations, and tosses up the kind of hearty and nutritious dishes you’ve never tried before.

Utah Mom – Faithful and freethinking, she dollops her confections with an irresistible streak of rebellion. She brought me this cup of sugar today.

And you? Just bring an appetite for adventure, and make yourself at home.


  1. Thanks for the great reads! I just found you via the Zen of Motherhood (you must be kindred spirits) and I’m glad I did! I’ll definitely be back…

  4. I’m not sure how I found your blog but am glad I did. Have spent an hour or so reading through your blog and the three blogs you referenced.

    Somewhere along the way, I came to the realization that I need to stop and enjoy today, live in the moment. I’m going outside now to plant my mums and pansies and think about what I’ve read.

    Well, wait a minute. Let me just say that I’m going to plant my pansies. Period. I can just enjoy the pansies, right? Right. πŸ™‚

  5. Moanna: to that I can only say,

    And to everyone: your delight is infectious. Keep spreading it around and let’s start an epidemic.

  6. I’m delighted and in awe of the fact that my words are singeing eyebrows!

  7. Sorry, clicked a moment too soon — I know I e-mailed to say this already, but I should officially put it in the comments too: THANK YOU! πŸ™‚
