"Gawdamn, you are a beautiful writer. It is in your fragile moments that you offer a delicate dance of poise within uncertainty. Even crossing guards need a day off, Morgan. It is only in those quiet and broken spaces that we can figure out the…"

"WOW. What an amazingly truthful and vulnerable post. Thank you so much for sharing what many women only cry about in the bathrooms by themselves."

Morgan Fraser commented on Morgan Fraser's blog post In Search of the Perfect Tortilla
"Glad you enjoyed the post, and that you, too have searched and found joy from tortillas and pico de gallo! I completely agree that access to the foods I love can make a place feel like home -- that's one of the reasons I love Boquete so much!"

"Great post. Wow, if I were younger, and, uh, not burdened down by cats, the idea of temp house-sitting in exotic locations would be very appealing. Hope you write more."

Wine Bullet

Posted on July 9, 2013 at 3:02pm 2 Comments

I roll the wine around on my tongue like a bullet, imagining it clacking against my teeth until I swallow it; until it does the job a bullet would and blots out the pain.

In certain circles that I belonged to not so long ago this would be normal. My own mother, once, advised a white pill on a wave of whiskey to help me sleep – no, to help me stop thinking – on my Facebook page no less.

“It took a lot of gin to get over her,” a boyfriend told me once, his words like the shaft of a…

In Search of the Perfect Tortilla

I love Panama, Boquete especially. Nearly every day I see a rainbow. Now, during the rainy season, it’s usually sunny in the mornings then clouds over and rains in the afternoon, leaving the valley where I live at the base of a volcano lush, green, and incredibly verdant.



Although I have recently…

Mother's Day Tribute to Nana: Nana's Pie Crust

Posted on May 6, 2013 at 1:20pm 0 Comments

It was the last week of edits before I would send off my first cookbook manuscript to the printer. I was stressed out, and trying to make pie wasn’t helping.



I am not a baker. Up to that point, I’m not sure I had ever made my own piecrust. Baking requires a precision that is often lost on me; if you mess up a sauce, there are dozens of ingredients you can throw into it to balance out, complement or drown out a flavor. If you mess up something you’re about to bake, the gods of…

Herding Others' Cats

I sat in a crowded mini bus. People pressed past me to stand in the aisle, barely large enough for a child to squeeze by. With each person, I tried to fold my shoulders inward and change the shape of the bag in my lap, trying to make more room. The bag objected – it meowed.

I was on my way to Changuinola on public transportation from Almirante, a trash-filled coastal village that is the gateway to the Bocas del Toro archipelago of islands of Panama, on the Caribbean Sea. Changuinola…

Welcome!

With any new site, we understand that finding your way around can be a bit daunting. To help you use our site, we have a few resources and tips, all of which can be found on pages under the Support tab in your top menu bar. They are:

FAQ- here you can find some quick answers to general questions, questions about privacy and about site features.

Site News, Tips & Tricks - this is our forum where you can find tips on using the site, news about site changes and other information from the staff and other members.

Our Terms Of Service and Our Copyright Policy can also be found under the Support tab.

You may also find additional help by going to chat and asking another member. Chat can be found in 2 place: There is a CHAT link in your top menu which will open chat in your browser.

The other option for opening chat is to use the small tabs at the bottom of most pages. The tab named "Opium Den" (our chat name) will open the in a small pop up window at the bottom of the screen. This window can also be resized or 'popped-out' and used as a separate window.

There is a "Members Online" tab on the bottom of your page too. This will show which other members are logged in (logged in does not mean they are active in the chat, simply they are logged in to the site). There is a small speaker icon which will allow you to adjust the chat beeps which many prefer to turn off or down when not actively chatting.

We have many excellent features and tools here. While it may seem overwhelming at first, the basics of posting and commenting are simple and before too long we hope you will feel comfortable and at home.

Bang around, explore, write, comment and most of all have fun!

Feel free to delete this comment.
