The Things You Do For Love: The Happy Wanderer
Coming home to care for my mother with Alzheimer’s three years ago after living a free and independent life in Los Angeles was like walking into The Twilight Zone. It was a world turned upside down. It had been hard to make that decision, but once I did, everything happened very fast. One minute I was telling my dad on the phone that I had decided to move back home, and then the next I was in the house where I had grown up, in the midst of utter ...

Fast Track Equality in Elected Office, Join Ignite and #DeclareYourAmbition!
“We have a serious equity problem in this country: Women make up over half the population but hold just 22% of elected offices.

Anxiety takes many forms. It is an emotional shapeshifter, and it works its way into our lives subtly. Sometimes my anxiety takes the form of guilt. This includes survivor’s guilt; it also includes sufferer’s guilt (which I don’t think is a term, but I’m going to use it anyway).
