Swift: Forum readers, hop on the Tamwagon for another loop
A funny thing happened on my way BACK to The Forum. After leaving a mumble-mumble-year career in journalism, I realized how much I missed the creative outlet of column-writing.

Swift: Pinterest 1 percent perspiration, 99 percent aspiration
I awoke to find myself with a loaded hot glue gun in my hand. My face was covered with mango-flavored fondant. A single pipe cleaner was glued to my forehead. I reached into my pockets. They were filled with glitter. Most disturbingly, my breath reeked of cinnamon potpourri – and shame.

Swift: When wacky ‘Over the Hill’ punch lines hit you in the gut
I used to think all those things said about menopause were sort of exaggerated. Wasn’t talk of “hot flashes” simply fodder for Maxine cartoons? Weren’t “night sweats” and “mood changes” the wacky punch lines for “Over the Hill” gifts at the party store?

Swift: Bonding over canine companions melts away fears
One not-so-great aspect of my newly single status is an increased sense of vulnerability. I definitely have become more paranoid now that I’m again on my own. I check and double-check my doors. I eye strangers and dark parking lots with suspicion.

Swift: Young minds turn intimidation into gratitude
Lately, my Facebook newsfeed has been filled with posts about gratitude. As part of “gratitude month,” people are publicly professing their gratefulness for everything from their families pets to their jobs.

Swift: Giving thanks for the little things
Last week, I wrote about gratitude. I had been recruited by a first-grade teacher to talk to her class about writing, and it turned out to be one of the highlights of my entire fall. The curiosity, intelligence and openness of these 6- and 7-year-olds were inspiring, and I began to understand why some people gravitate toward teaching the very young.

Swift: Nuclear warhead design has nothing on Christmas tree
‘Wouldn’t it be fun to set up the tree?” My mother’s question, posed during Thanksgiving break, seemed so harmless – even inviting. After all, I had once been the family’s official tree-trimmer. One of my favorite jobs was to turn on an old movie and decorate the tree late at night.

Swift: Whirlwind romance leads to heartburn, empty wallet
Dear Costco: This is a difficult letter for me to write, especially after all we’ve meant to each other. The past week has been a whirlwind romance.

Swift: Little dog serves big role, especially during transition
They will grouse that it is ridiculous to get all emotional about a “dumb animal.” They will snort that we project human emotions and gifts onto dogs and cats that they really don’t possess.

Swift: Houseguest makes house feel like a home
I like my space. Deep down, I’m really an introvert. I’m not a big fan of constant activity and noise. I don’t really like drop-in visitors. I like to eat when I want to and go to bed when I feel like it.

Swift: What would Facebook tell an outsider about our culture?
I was zooming through my Facebook news feed one day, reading the latest Jezebel story about how Lena Dunham was Photoshopped to look like Christian Bale on the cover of “American Biker” magazine.

Swift: Latest trip no exception to special treatment at airport
I must look guilty. It never fails. Whenever I fly, I am always the one who is singled out for a little extra TSA TLC. My friends have several theories as to why this happens. “Ursula” says it’s because my hair is so large that the TSA thinks I may be smuggling something onto the plane.

Swift: ‘Cold’ temperatures are all relative across country
I recently spent a wonderful week in balmy Florida. Palm trees and sleeveless weather were such a welcome break after a winter of Polar Multiplexes in the Frozen North. I got to visit my sisters, eat at a few of my favorite restaurants and think of something besides frozen pipes and snow-shoveling.

Swift: Sometimes we need a bit of perspective
Everyone should have a friend like Penelope in their lives. When we first met in the early ’90s, we were both young, single women, just starting out in our professional lives. We reconnected a few years later, after realizing we’d both moved into the same building.

Swift: Glamour shots cool thing to do in 1994
Yes, we all have things from our younger years that we regret. I certainly do. My decision to take a data punch-card entry class in high school. My asymmetrical haircut phase during college. My slavish devotion to Whitesnake. But the Granddaddy of All Questionable Youthful Choices may have been my decision to get a “glamour shot.”

Swift: Divorce brings ups, downs and Tater Tots
There’s one thing I can tell you about divorce. You may nod sympathetically when someone else is going through it, and you may secretly judge, thinking, “These darned kids today don’t know how to hunker down and stay married anymore.”

Swift: Day spent as Iron Maiden like a trip to the spa
As you grow older, your body starts to turn on you. Words that never previously entered your vocabulary now become part of your regular lexicon. "Should I buy orthotics for this plantar fasciitis" you find yourself asking your physician. "I sure could use a chair with some lumbar support to ease my sciatica."
