  1. Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed “House in the Woods.” Recently read it on the American Literary Review. Am planning on submitting my work to them and read your piece from last years contest….Have to say, I think you deserved first place…..Happy writing…

  2. I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your recent article in the HuffPost, “I Don’t Want to Cook dor My Family…” I can relate, even and especially now, at 66 years old. But more than that, your wrting is elegant and charming. I smilwd all thw way through!

  3. Thank you so much for your piece about not wanting to cook for your family! I so got it, that it has nothing to do with not loving them, but the automatic burden I think of the assumption or expectation that all women should just naturally want to provide this day in day out. I never had children and I am divorced actually, and sometimes I say a silent prayer that as much as I wish I was with an amazing partner to share a deep life beside, I’m so glad I don’t have anyone to cook for. I’ve felt guilty, selfish for this feeling at times, and yet I know no-one who knows me would call me selfish. There are so many other ways to express our love and affection to our loved ones.

    1. Hi Alix, thank you! I’m really glad you wrote and shared some of your experience with these feelings. It seems like lots of women—single or married, with kids or not, have felt the way you and I do. But cookikg just isn’t for everyone. I think how you put this: “There are so many other ways to express our love and affection to our loved ones,” is lovely. Just reading that reminded me again that we know how to love and be loved even if we don’t whip up beautiful meals for others on the regular.
