Other writing

As my nephew once said to his mom when he was about 5 years old, “Mom, I just can’t stop thinking.” I feel the same way, and when I think, I write.

I have an essay in “Knowing Pains: Women on Love, Sex and Work in Our 40s,” which you can buy here (all proceeds go toward the Breast Cancer Fund).

I’m a regular contributor to the Huffington Post divorce section (hey — if you are twice divorced, you generally have something to say about divorce); Mommy Tracked: Managing the Chaos of Modern Motherhood, a great site addressing issues moms face today, as well as ModernMom.com; and, of course, you can find my articles  on the Marin IJ Web site.

Here are some recent ramblings:

    Thanks for your article “Can Loving a Robot Lead to Divorce?” It was handled with humor and a little distance that hopefully made it palatable for most. In your scenarios, your questions dealt with a strictly robotic “adversary” for attention and affections. Hold on to your hat because I can predict the future! The next twist is going to be a sexbot with full human interaction. Some entreprenuer is going to see that all they have to do is add a wifi link and take a credit card and put a live sex-chat operator into your robot. Maybe they’ll even add some web-based movement options so the operator can literally push your buttons. Please don’t forward this email to the makers of Roxxxy. I’d hate to be responsible for setting this revolting development into action.

    Thanks again,

    Rich Brown

      This war on monogamy you perpetrate in most of ur writings are a Cop out BS -easy way out–why bother to tend the garden? If the plant is sick and the weeds grow–rip it out by the roots and buy another one! Speak to the X-husbands. Sure they have plenty to say too! Tata

    Thanks for your comment, Rich, and your kind words. I always try to write with humor but that often falls flat when it’s about what people just don’t want to imagine!
    What you describe is a very real scenario. The robots of the future will be highly interactive, which, even as an old sci-fi fan, I find somewhat unsettling. Fascinating, but unsettling. Happy holidays!
