Sitting here in the place of my birth, on the couch next to my brilliant, beautiful father, Tom — listening to him regale me with both sad and delightful memories of his life and his childhood while I take copious notes for the book…both of us BELLY LAUGHING and BELLY CRYING every five…and then looking out the window and seeing this serene, gorgeous sight.
Peace. Contentment. Love.
My ebullience is complete.
Even when it’s difficult, even when it’s treacherous and terrifying, but especially when it is this amazing and transcendent…I love my goddamned life SO VERY, VERY MUCH.

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.
