I’ll admit it: Winter isn’t my favorite season. I’m not a born-and-bred New Englander, and each winter seems to bring new challenges.

I was 14 years old when he grabbed me on the bus. I froze for a second on the way to my seat. His hand was under my skirt — my brand new, double tiered, mustard yellow skirt. Outside the bus windows, the scenery alternated between cornfields and subdivisions, but I couldn’t see it. I […]
You’ve got to know when to hold ’em, Know when to fold ’em, Know when to walk away, Know when to run. You never count your money When you’re sittin’ at the table. There’ll be time enough for countin’ When the dealing’s done. I heard this song on the radio the other day, and as […]
