Dear Ely,

My family is driving me crazy. They all want me to get married, like immediately, and they won’t stop riding my ass about it. The pressure starts at the top, with my grandmother. She keeps telling me that when she was my age, she was already married with three children. Once she starts, my aunts (my mom has four sisters) all chime in. “Are you dating anyone special?” “When are going to settle down and start a family?” It’s gone from funny to uncomfortable to really annoying, and now I try to avoid family gatherings just to escape the harassment. But my mom is... Read More

Laughter triggers physical changes in the body by strengthening our immune system, boosting energy, diminishing pain and stress.

After years of struggling against my basic intellectual wiring, I have finally accepted that there are large black holes in my brain that deal with technology and even simple mechanics. I am content to manage our large home, renovate, garden and landscape and write. I do not care one whit that the kids laugh in disbelief because I cannot figure out the T.V. or cell phone.

Case in point.

I am a woman who has done little travelling. After 12 hours of travelling across three-time zones, on three different airplanes, connecting with a shuttle service and making it to my parents condominium... Read More

My sister clutching the wheel, drives in circles until she can find a parking spot where she can drive straight through to the next row. She refuses to back out of a parking space. She constantly asks,

"But, Mum, I need a street name or at least an idea of how far up this street I have to go."

My 80-year old mother checking for traffic. "Emily, Emily, watch out! A car is coming!" Ans finally me in the back seat with a map because my mother never learned the street names.

"But Mum, is it east or west? Do you at least remember the first letter of the street... Read More

I lost my family long ago. Some to the ground…some to major forks in the road. The ones in the ground I visit as often as time allows. The others…those who are still alive but have conveniently moved on, I have blessed and released. That is what we do these days when we have no interest in working through conflict.

You see, my relatives are a diehard band of boozers and if you know anything about drunks, they have a tendency to hash over the small shit. Then in the morning, pretend nothing happened. We’d pass the flapjacks…pour the maple syrup…and smile through heartache and hangover... Read More

Cows look dumb and lumber slowly but believe it or not, they are extremely curious. One day as a child, my sister,cousin and I sat on the edge of a stream to eat a picnic, realizing to late that a herd of cattle surrounded us on three sides to get a closer look at us. My heart was pounding as we gathered up our lunch, huddled closely together and facing the cattle, slowly edged away. I swear those steers followed us every step of the way, never taking their eyes off us. It was an eerie experience, the stuff of nightmares.

The old saying "curiosity killed the cat, should really say "... Read More
