My Dad, Robert Angel

Today would have been my father’s 75th birthday. I miss him so much there is a physical ache in my heart. He was my biggest cheerleader, the shoulder I cried on, my inspiration to do... read on

  • Insomnia, Questions, Clarity & a Break

    By Ilana Angel

    November 17, 2013 | 10:35 am

    I have not slept in two days. It is bad. I am exhausted. No physically, but mentally. When one doesn’t sleep the only thing to do is think and no good can come of that. I am at a crossroads in my life and I feel like there is a fork in the road with decisions to be made. I am... read on

    November 22 marks what would have been my father’s 75th birthday. He passed away from cancer and as the date approaches I find myself getting sad and angry. Sad he is not here, and angry cancer is such a vicious bitch. I am going through a transition of some kind and while not sure... read on

    I recently got a tweet from matchmaker and relationship expert Siggy Flicker telling me she was a fan of this blog and thought I was a brave and honest writer.  It was lovely, and a big deal because I think Siggy is great and am a fan of hers.  I first became aware of her through... read on

    Someone recently posted on Facebook that one day they would blow their grandchildren’s minds when they told them they were older than the Internet. Very cool and crazy.  We are so dependant on modern technology it is hard to imagine how we grew up without the things we have. My son... read on

    From the moment I got pregnant I started to wait. It took me a long time, and a lot of infertility treatments to get pregnant, and when I found out I was going to have a baby my life became a waiting game. I was nervous during my pregnancy and so I would wait for my doctor... read on

  • Dating 101: Saying You’re Sorry

    By Ilana Angel

    November 3, 2013 | 8:55 am

    I think it is both unnatural and invigorating to date in middle age. I am 47 years old and truly surprised to still be dating. I’m not a good dater.  I am great in a relationship, but meeting new people, dating, and the time spent dating to see if there will be a relationship is... read on

  • Crying, Demons, Hope

    By Ilana Angel

    November 2, 2013 | 7:14 pm

    I have been crying for 24 hours. For a bunch of little reasons, and for no reason at all, I can’t stop crying. I pull myself together, and then without warning I start crying again. I’m not sobbing, or weeping, I am simply crying. Tears are falling from my eyes at lightning speed,... read on
