I have a friend--I'll call her Jennie--who was diagnosed eight months ago with breast cancer. I learned this very recently. Jennie and I are friends whose worlds overlap only along a very particular seam: we meet and see each other thanks to our dogs, who compete in canine agility. In the sport of...

We left Georgia in the rain this morning, and Gerald had rough driving off and on throughout the day as rain stopped and started. Sometimes it only sprinkled, and sometimes the downpour and fog in the mountains made visibility quite a strain. We are glad to be back at Woodsong, reviewing the mail,...

Now that I tweet on Twitter and put updates on Facebook, I'm not nearly as good about blogging... (my publicist has found the coolest application that allows me to do all those sites through one place...) But I've started a project that's worthy of a blog... Karen Althage, a breast cancer survivor...

My mother lost the battle with breast cancer last night and there are no words to express my sorry. But I know at least now she's no longer suffering and in a much better place--no worries, no stress, no more surgeries or pain or hospitals or needles.  My heart goes out to everyone who's lost a...

I'm not Jewish. Perhaps in another lifetime, but not this one. My aunt thought we were, because somewhere someone had told her that our ancestors (Cherokees and Kiowas) were the Lost Tribe of Israel.  She converted in a way I suppose. She went to synagoge, ate kosher and observed the Sabbath. I...

I am starting to hate the color pink.  Somehow pink has come to represent breast cancer.   Breast cancer is not cute.  It is not frilly or girlie or stylish.  Breast cancer is ugly and heart breaking and devastating.  I guess it would not be very encouraging to use black ribbons to represent breast...

This may be the most boring blog ever. Certainly, the most boring I've written, because it's all all about self promotion. But if it's self promotion for a good cause, does that change things? I thought so ... Well, after a lot of exhausting rewrites, editing, e-mailing and phone calls, the...

10:50am... Aside from my unabated excitement for the next Gossip Girl, the other thing on my mind is my thesis project. Project being an understatement for the hell, frustration, agonizing, and tediousness of the last year and a half. I've gone through the hoops, done my research, and finally...
