Katherine Emery | Drowning my phone was an amazing accident. I am calm. I know that no one can reach me, that I won’t have the interrupting, insidious beeps and squeaks and buzzes that I’ve grown accustomed to. I woke up this morning with the sun. I suddenly see the pajamas I chose in the dark the night before. The sheets are clean, the covers are heavy. I wriggle down, and grab my book. My daughter sleeps, still.

Katherine Wilson | When did I get to look so old? Perhaps it was when I was pregnant with my third babe and I could barely move I was so exhausted. Or possibly when I decided to turn something I love into a business, thereby allowing it to consume me at times, most of the time. Either way, I’m tired. And looking old. But I’m here, doing something I love surrounded by my loves. And not many can say that.
