I cannot even imagine college. I’m white-knuckling it just letting my son go to kindergarten for eight hours a day.
I love Saturday nights with my best friend and a big bowl of pasta, wanting a good scare, something that will say, ‘Listen, your life is not as bad as this. Your life can be so much worse’.
In the quiet moments, the discoveries are made.
I’m a full-time mom. I’ve never felt as prepared, as before maternity.
I’m someone who can sit in a Buddhist temple, and I can sit with Pentecostals or with Orthodox Jews, and I still feel like I am in tune with all of them.
It’s terrifying to be the lead. There’s a moment of excitement, and then pure terror.

I can’t do Los Angeles. I’ve always been the anti-Barbie. I don’t want to be in a place where almost every woman walks around with puffy lips, little noses and breasts large enough to nourish a small country.
Your soul either feels lifted by something that you read, or it feels squashed by it.
The nature of evil, the nature of it, it exists. It exists and I think within us we have the tools. If we have the will, we can combat it. I think the power is within us and it lies in our own conceptualization of God and positivity and compassion and love.
