I hope you write about the difference between being alone and lonely because I am feeling very lonely right now. Very discouraged with dating. I'm at that age where all of my exes are changing their FB status to "engaged" from single or they are posting pictures of their kids. I really need to get my "much" mo-jo back because it's certainly lost!

I liked that part of the movie, too. One thing I've found is that my muchness recently took on the form of being overwhelmed with everything that felt broken in my life: missed opportunities, unachieved goals, a profound sense of loneliness. On the surface everything felt fine, but I kept wanting to FIX everything in my life. Now I'm trying to work on transforming my muchness into happiness and fulfillment (and achievable goals)!

Amy and Jessica-- Loneliness just flat out sucks. But muchness helps! So does "doing the active thing," my very favorite piece of stolen wisdom. There's definitely a big, long post to be done on this! In the meantime, good luck with the mojos and muchness!

My Books (with Elizabeth Craft)

  • 'Bass Ackwards and Belly Up' and 'Footfree and Fancyloose' tell the story of four best friends who commit the ultimate suburban sin: putting off college to pursue their dreams.

    Publisher's Weekly said: "Full of romance and adventure, laughter and tears, the story is a reminder that veering from the straight and narrow road doesn't always lead to a dead end."

    What is Starfish Envy??

    • L.A. 2009. I’m stuck in traffic on the 101 freeway, listening to Isabella Rosselini on NPR. Isabella, for some reason, mentions that starfish are one of those rare species that can reproduce asexually, and I realize that if I could do that, I wouldn't have to worry about finding a boyfriend/husband. I wouldn’t have to internet date! I wouldn't have to figure out if I want to/can/should have a baby/adopt a baby/child on my own. I wouldn't have to stress about things like FSH levels, or weigh my feelings on in vitro versus adoption. I would just have a baby. Thus began my starfish envy.
