Confessions of a Ginger

Being a ginger is awesome! I love it! I’m proud of it! But there was a time when I wasn’t. Being an unsecure teenager was tough. Being a bullied one was even worse. There are some things that are quite different when it comes to us gingers and the bullies have a talent for finding those little things and using…

We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler (Review)

Meet the Cooke family. Our narrator is Rosemary Cooke. As a child, she never stopped talking; as a young woman, she has wrapped herself in silence: the silence of intentional forgetting, of protective cover.

You don’t look sick!

After the passing of Robin Williams there has been a renewed focus on depression. Depression is only one of the many difficult diseases that a person might carry but are not visible to others. I cannot feel what you feel anymore than you can feel what I feel. This is why we should be careful to judge. You don’t look…
