Masterpiece in Progress

Posted on: May 5th, 2016 by Kate Perry

I’ve been told I’m beautiful. I’ve been told I’m ugly. I’ve been called fat, and I’ve been called skinny. My nose has been both regal and crooked. Sometimes my breasts are too big, and sometimes they’re too small. I’ve been told to tone it down. I’ve been told men don’t

Confession #44

I’ve been having trouble pulling together SILVER MOON SPARKLING.   Not because of the story—it’s a good one. And not because of the heroine—she’s quirky and lovable and vulnerable and hopeful in all the best ways. I’ve been having trouble with Robbie.   “Not Robbie!” you exclaim with a startled

New Life, New Hope

Posted on: March 8th, 2016 by Kate Perry

Spring is flirting with New York today. Tulips burst with color, and butterfly are coming back to life. It makes me hopeful, for love and growth and abundance. It’s time to let them bloom. “Come let’s fall in love again, let’s turn all the dirt in this world to shiny

Do you know why it’s a great day? Well, okay–because we’re alive, and we have each other, and we have dreams and hopes and love. But aside from that, today is awesome because DANCING ON A MOONBEAM, Part 2 is out! Perhaps we should put on some Pitbull and shake

I’ve been writing affirmations on my candles. I have several, all with different focuses, all things I’m going to manifest. When I was a kid, I heard someone say that the people who write down their goals achieve them. It’s more than that, because you have to put intention behind

Earnest Eyes and Gratitude

Posted on: February 17th, 2016 by Kate Perry

I woke up this morning with thoughts of gratitude… And of hot Canadian mounted police with earnest blue eyes. The mounty with the blue eyes was inspired by Netflix. My sister-friend Michelle and I stayed up late last night watching “When Calls the Heart.” I’d never watched it before, but

As you know, I left San Francisco abruptly. I hadn’t thought that I wouldn’t go back, or that I’d end up living in New York. Sometimes life takes you on unexpected adventures. Shortly after I moved, a dear friend took me to watch “It’s a Wonderful Life.” I hadn’t ever

The Kindness of Strangers

I lived in Buenos Aires for a little while a few years ago. When I went, I knew no one, but I made friends quickly. Except on New Years everyone had plans and I didn’t, which bummed me out. So I decided I was going to share champagne with someone

For the past four months, my close friend John Dear has been sending me messages to remind me of peace and forgiveness. He’s a peace activist—it’s what he does. But he also has my heart’s best interest in mind, so I always listen. Surprisingly, it’s not that hard to forgive

Love and Rainbows

“Do you know what we’re going to have today?” the best friend said. The author shook her head. “What?” “A Paris day!” Joy lighting her face, the best friend clapped her hands together. “It’s just what you need.” The author wasn’t so sure, but her best friend was so excited
