None now - though enough before. Taking a break to feel the peace.
Jan 2008

Native New Yorker living in L.A., been writing one way or another for 25 years--most happily as journalist and column writer for newspapers and magazines in Berkshire County, Massachusetts. Got to write about what I saw, parenting (often tongue-in- cheek) in L.A. and the oh-so-cultured mountains of the northeast. Now working in marketing and PR -- ouch, but a solid paycheck for a proud single mom. Miss telling the truth, so this and a few other online forums are a return to sanity for me and I'm grateful for a place to say it--good, bad and not so indifferent.
