About me

I have been musing lately on the kinds of displacement we experience in our lives (physical, cultural, emotional) and how to make sense of them. I started my first journal when I was 8 but was an inconsistent writer even when I was teaching consistency to high school writers. With the birth of my second child, I found I could no longer ignore the need for a creative outlet in my life. Washing dirty socks just wasn’t cutting it. Here is my beginning.

    Dear Adrienne,
    I’ve been meaning to email about your blog. I’m Leah I work with your mom (who I love) your writing is wonderful, hysterical at times and reminds me of my big Italian family. Growing up next door in Palisades Park (even though your slightly younger lol) we shared similiar times growing up in a small close knit town. Please keep up with the blog I truly love it. Leah

    • Hi Leah,
      Thank you so much! It means a lot to me that I can reach a wider audience than just my family. After all, they HAVE to say they love it, even if it makes them want to gag. So thank you. It’s encouragement like yours that makes me realize I need to keep on working on this!

    I found a video of a similar interview with E.L. Doctorow. The chapter list includes the story of Karl, although he doesn’t tell it as well here:

    Keep writing! -N
