  • I started this blog in honor of all the times I've said: "I NEVER SIGNED UP FOR THIS" in the course of my life as a mother, breast cancer survivor, artist and TV journalist. My goal is to share the big and little things we all care about-- hopefully with humanity and humor. ------- DARRYLE POLLACK

A mother, an artist, a chocoholic, a breast cancer survivor, a cat owner, a drama queen, a transplanted Californian, a writer, a procrastinator, a Yale graduate, a former TV newscaster, a wife (because my husband complains that he always comes last on my list)
