What it means to not be from Maine.
for those that weren't lucky enough to have shared a worklife with you - who don't even know these pearls of wisdom exist - i'd say put it all together in a 'here's my life' book. one cannot help but be transported with you, to be standing next to you. maybe because i was lucky enough to be paired with you. there's a reason why this part of your life has been born. i so miss my cyclist. xoxo
Debra, you capture so much of our lives so damn perfectly! I was nodding and laughing and holding my heart all at the same time. We were lucky, so very lucky, to have those stories and appreciate the gifts of those times. And yes, although we all have too much stuff, no way can you throw that Large Boy away!!!!
I love everything about this piece. You will always be my absolute favorite curvy toothpick! #DriveOn!
Something about being on set is magic, it's hard work but it's still magic. I love Large Boy and please hold on to them. The five condoms - perfect.
How?!…How do you manage to outdo, what was already my favorite writing?!! Debra, forgive me, but getting laid off was a gift…for you & by extension all of us ,who get to read your genius as a result! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🙏🏻
(BTW, these would translate well as a sitcom…just sayin’)
Blog. Newsletter. Substack. Whatever. You are a gift! ❤️
Ha ha! Great story Debra! xx
Large Boy, how fun reading your piece today from Stupid Girl.
"I love that now I get to write all day, not a status or scoping meeting in sight." And that is why I prefer to freelance. Please don't make running your business my job.
I know from what and where you speak. I’ve been in Maine nearly 16 years. And I love it more every year. Yesterday I was taking a ride with a friend just breathing in the cool, fresh air and sights. At one point he turned to me and said, we are so lucky to live in Maine. I responded with a profound, Yup, we sure are.
You are such a gifted writer, Debra! I’m loving your newsletters.
I say you put on your Large Boys and take yourself holiday shopping. X
