What were you doing ten years ago? Where were you living? Did you have kids yet? Where were you working? Think about how much you have grown over the
past ten years. Have you grown a
lot? Not so much? Maybe things are a little tougher for you now
than they were then?
Ten years ago on March 31, 2005 my ex-husband was arrested
for domestic abuse and false imprisonment. Technically, I think his arrest was just after midnight on April 1; but
you get the idea.
Natalie Merchant is simply beautiful. Her appearance, her clothes, her voice—are understated and natural, and
beautiful. I really enjoy her song “Wonder”
because it helps me to imagine what it would truly be like to be famous and
subjected to the opinions of so many others, including people who really have
no idea who you are at the core. It also
helps me to understand how strong a celebrity’s personal boundaries must be so
that they can be tough enough to keep out unwanted influences.
