Unlearning

Posted  October 3, 2015  by  Tanya McGinnity

The process of unlearning has been front and center in my life these days. My mother is dying and had packaged up a box of some various mementos for me – photos, notes, baby shoes, children’s books and every single one of my report cards. I haven’t been able to look at the box until […]

Can you feel the music?

Posted  September 17, 2015  by  Tanya McGinnity

Posted  September 4, 2015  by  Tanya McGinnity

I like a Dave Matthews Band song. I have been crying more in the past 6 months in my entire lifetime and it feels amazing. Really. I’ve been doing a lot of self massage with tennis balls on my upper shoulders. Can’t recommend this enough. I am quite adept at keeping bamboo alive. My first […]

A break from book reviewing

Posted  May 11, 2015  by  Tanya McGinnity
