Slippery when wet

January 15, 2002

i made the mistake of diving into the past today, reading old things written, getting nostalgic, feeling regret pelt me in the heart, missing him, missing you. i am wondering if i will ever learn.

there is so much, too much, that i feel needs work. if i could just be more of this and less of that, i think, then maybe everything would be ok. maybe i would understand.

but that is where i falter. i won’t ever know it all, i can’t ever know it all. i will always be chasing, hoping, fretting. i will always be starting over. i am a work in progress, slippery when wet.


  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
