    Yesterday was a good day of exploring with this lady. Today, I’m off to a late start, but I have high hopes.

  • “I know her in the daylight.
    How her voice leaves a place,
    a fluttering cymbal beneath
    my breast. I examine her
    hands, and put them in
    my hair which last night’s birds
    never leave.”

    Beckian Fritz Goldberg, from “Eve,” In the Badlands of Desire (Cleveland State University Poetry Center, 1993)

    First week in Chicago! We took the time to vacation in our new hometown. So much amazing food, drinks and napping. I feel happy and safe in our new neighborhood.

    Last night, we celebrated our seventh anniversary. I walked down N. Clark Street with flowers and wine. I’m so grateful.

    This next week, we’ll start to ease into job applications. I had the first interview today at NU in Evanston. So nerve-wracking! But it went well. I need to remember to pace myself, practice self-care and enjoy time with friends.

    Women and Children First

    Stopped into Women and Children First to inquire about the job app process. I have an application! For the interview, I need to explain why I’m a feminist. Need to think about this so I’m not speechless.
