Sitting here in our dusky, still quiet house…drinking a delicious cup of coffee delivered up by my BELOVED French Press, and getting some early morning writing in before the delightful daily stampede of husband, grown-up children, and chihuahuas stormtroop the stillness that currently surrounds me. Oh, Normal Day…I KNOW, WITH ALL MY HEART, what a TREASURE YOU ARE.

Anyway, I woke up thinking about how fucking lucky and thankful I am for all the extraordinary writers, artists, performers, creators, and creatives that I am privileged to call my friends…starting with THIS BRILLIANT BROAD RIGHT HERE. If you are not yet familiar with the astonishing writing of Miss Spike Gillespie, you need to read her shit, follow her blog, stalk her Facebook, procure her books, and rectify that travesty now.


This post from today made me cry…in the BEST POSSIBLE way that one human can make another cry. I ADORE YOU, Miss Spike. Keep truth tellin’ and honey drippin’, sister.


About muffybolding

Muffy Bolding is a mother/writer/actor/knitter/feminist/withered debutante who likes the smell of asparagus pee, and remains obsessed with the bathroom hygiene of her three children -- despite the fact that they are 23, 19, and 16. She is blissfully married to a cute Jewish boy who looks like Willie Wonka, but remains tragically in love with the dead poet, Ted Hughes. She has the mouth of a Teamster, and her patron saint is Rocco (pestilence relief.) Ms. Bolding lives in Southern California, where she enjoys typing words, making movies, and plucking the rings from the fingers of the dead. She was the co-creator and Editor-in-Chief of the award winning satire zine, Fresno Lampoon, and in between writing screenplays, carnival barking, and savagely threatening her trio of darling larvae with a wooden spoon, she currently publishes the zine, "Withered Debutante." More of her work can also be found in the anthology, "Mamaphonic: Balancing Motherhood and Other Creative Acts", the compilation zine, "Mamaphiles III: Coming Home", as well as in The Cortland Review and hipmama.com. She is currently writing and producing for film and television, and working on a book of essays entitled, "Inside A Chinese Dragon." She has slept around, but not nearly as much as she would have liked.
