About

036Welcome to my blog!   I’m a lawyer, a mom, a writer, and a BIG fan of Elton John.  I also suffer from depression, like millions of others.  Sharing my story seems to help other people, and I’m happy to do so.  This blog is brutally honest, and be forewarned– sometimes the content is rated R.  I hold nothing back.

This blog covers my various misadventures in corporate America, as I have worked in three corporate law departments and two large law firms during my almost 30 year career as a lawyer.  I’ve always felt like a square peg in a round hole.  Worse, I’ve never been able to keep my mouth shut when I see something that’s just plain wrong.  As you will see, it has gotten me in trouble over the years, but I have no regrets.  I care more about people and relationships than money and promotions.

I’ve also suffered from depression since I was 17.  I write about that too.

Then, there’s Elton John and Bernie Taupin, my favorite musical artist and lyricist.  I’ve been a fan since I was 13.  They are both still going strong after 40 years, and so am I.

I’m still standing.  So if you are game, join me on my journey.  I have no idea where it will take us.
