As some of you know, my husband and I have been working our fingers to the bone on a start-up company that will change the world. Except, in real life, I wish my fingers were bonier, because then my wedding ring I got 16 years ago would fit better. Right now my fingers are chubby, […]

Here’s a new work by my friend Patricia Freeman Martin, from her new book: “The Diary of Uncle Billy.” This chapter is about the pink walls in the basement bedroom. I love this painting. I don’t have an uncle Billy, nor a bedroom basement with pink walls, but I love pink. My first memory was […]
