to the moon and back:
a childhood under the influence

Share the Hope

Lisa Kohn’s memoir of being raised in and torn between two conflicting worlds. There was the world she longed for and lived in on weekends – her mother’s world, which was the fanatical, puritanical cult of the Moonies – and the world she was forced to live in during the week – her father’s world, which was based in sex, drugs, and the squalor of life in New York City’s East Village in the 1970’s.

Be Happy

Maybe I should start this post with “Don’t worry.” Maybe “Be happy” is enough. It’s just over two weeks until to the moon and back is out. My older kid reminded me last week that I was only going to experience this once in my lifetime – the publication of my first...

Lead with your heart

As it often is, it was during a yoga class. As it often is, it was our instructor. She guided us to lead with our hearts. Now, I know she was thinking about our yoga pose – to lead with our hearts as we bent over our legs. To keep our backs straight and lead with our...
