Loosing my looks, loneliness, death and not ever being ready are my most insistent demons. In this month’s essay I talk about my demons changing their sheepskin, and not leaving me alone without a fight :). “How I Laid My Demons To Rest” up on The Wild Word.
This month’s theme was “The Long Days Of Summer” and I wrote my thoughts on surviving the summer holidays as a family. My essay “Beach Days And Bored Children” can be read both on The Wild Word and on Huffington Post under the title “How My Mother Saved Summer“.
My personal essay What Makes Us Happy appears in issue 16 of The Wild Word. This themed issue is dedicated to motherhood. I share my thoughts on motherhood being the right or wrong answer to all women, and on the expectations society poses on women to become a specific type of mother.
