Is Happiness a Place?

I’ve watched three episodes of Bourdain’s Parts Unknown since last night and now my thoughts are consumed by food and culture.

Mental Health: In Which Steff Calls a Spade a Spade

A couple months ago, I proposed to talk about writing for therapy, how to kinda “go there”, via blogging. The conference was yesterday. It was an “unconference” put on by end-patients and people who work on the peripheries of mental care. Why did I want to get involved? For a million reasons. I’ll get to […]
