Forbes came out with this article yesterday. A quick read, and one, I linked to my podcast, Hey Honey, today. https://www.forbes.com/sites/jessicagold/2020/10/10/8-things-mental-health-experts-want-you-to-know-on-world-mental-health-day/#3b3f28ab7932 I have some ways I've ben getting through this. Here it is, from the link...what I've done. It's normal to feel bad right now. On a scale of 1-10, ten being the worse, for… Continue reading World Health Mental Health Awareness-My Take
Well, I didn't start a new blog. I am just adding to this blog. I don't blog or subtweet anymore (you'll find a lot of that shit in my archives). I'm podcasting. I'm on Tik Tok. The podcast is heyhoney on Apple, Spotify & Google. And Stitcher. If you give a listen, and want to… Continue reading Hey.
i wrote the ending, but accidentally deleted it somehow. i suppose that's just right. love.
In the past few days, when I know my mother wants to read more, and people are messaging me telling me they are following this story, I feel resistance to write. My journal sits open, but I'm clearly too busy, or don't want to finish this story. My friends are probably tired of my wide… Continue reading i must finish this. #saba
It's 3am on Valentine's Day. This is the day I did not want to write about. It's not really about Saba. It's about meeting myself. I leave the meeting of like minded fellows, of which there are four of us. I had gone snorkeling that day. Swam with a Sea Turtle. A barracuda, who eyed… Continue reading Think you’re escaping and run into yourself.
How is this my fifth blog post and only my second day in Saba? From yesterday: S and I find the road. The road! We are high fiving like we won the lottery, which is sort of true. Because who wants to be stranded on a cliff overnight with black racer snakes? These are things… Continue reading saba love letters
Everyone told me--leave your phone in your room when you are on Saba. You must disconnect completely. No texts, photos, nothing.

The first blog posts about this trip live here: the back story, one day in Saba, early… Continue reading in which i left my phone in my room
A Saban dance hall, a pizza, a good night's sleep and still. This day 2 hasn't even started. When I was a child, I enjoyed rainy days. Forced inside-ness. While everyone was complaining about the weather, I secretly loved being made to play Monopoly, sit by the fire, and have my Mom's grilled cheese-tomato soup… Continue reading self reflection over. i venture out. (day 2 Saba)
This really happened. Day 2 in my Saba journey. I want to be really clear. Saba is wonderful, magical, stunning. But. I didn't go there for anything but to find my core. Initially, I wanted a vacation. I wrote about Day 1 here. Then, when I found out there were really no beaches in Saba,… Continue reading It wasn’t even noon yet. Day 2, am.
I Googled, "Beaches for Women". This is how it started. I wanted just one place to sit on the Caribbean Sea. Add coconut oil, drinks, sand, and relaxation. I don't know how, and I don't know why, but at that very moment, seemingly, I got an email from AARP giving me this great deal to… Continue reading One Day in Saba (Part 1)
