less than a day i’ll be cramped in a small space with nothing below me but waves and uncertainty…you’d think i’d be more excited. i think i should be. but for some reason this trip doesn’t have me restless or giddy. actually it has me pretty pragmatic. i’ve packed…the lightest i’ve ever pulled off actually.

Dreams are a funny thing. Not just the lofty goals I set for myself, but the groggy nighttime visions that sometimes visit me while I sleep. I’ve been having all kinds of strange dreams these days. I remember them briefly when I wake up…like a passing introduction at a crowded party – and then, poof, […]

I am still amazed at how quickly the weather changes in New Orleans. I’m no stranger to the South. In Texas we used to joke (as many places do) that if you don’t like the weather, wait a minute, it’ll change. Sure enough… I walked from my car this morning in obscene heat – chased […]

Listening to a radio talk show on Monday, I was agitated and inspired to share a piece of my mind with the listening audience. Having missed the phone number being repeated and short on time and patience I dragged my friend into the house and ranted back and forth with her for a little while. […]

Linnea Ashley on July 5th, 2005 Bisexuality has been coming up in conversations, articles and shows in the last few weeks…now here it is in the NYTimes…I would love to hear any dialogue on this…

Excitement on Canal Street and not the usual kind! So last night as I headed to the airport to pick up my friend I noticed the smell of gasoline permeating the bottom floor of my apartment building. Independent woman that I am, I of course called my daddy to ask what he thought of the […]

It has come to my attention that my last posting sounded harsh to my married friends. That wasn’t my intent. In fact, the concept of busy extends beyond wife/husband and kids. My single friends are busy in their lives and time somehow runs away from all of us. I’m as guilty as any. All of […]
