2018 Can Fuck All the Way Off
I’m an optimist. As such, I expect each year to be better than the last. Lately, though, time and life have been finding new and creative ways to kick me in the teeth. It started in 2016 when the election friction tore a rift in our nation and in my family....

Suffering, but not Struggling
I went to bed last night thinking, “Everyone in my life is struggling right now.” Marriage issues, career setbacks, rapid and disorienting change, natural disasters and natural transitions. They’re struggling. But are they suffering? This week I met a woman...

You Are What You Wear
I paired the butterfly skirt with a t-shirt that reads “Take what you need and burn the rest.” In all the years I’ve owned that butterfly skirt, I’ve never had a perfectly-matching top for it. The material is flowy and satiny with a slender lining underneat...

Put Another One in the Books
We’ve been married 17 years. I wish I had a memory to share for each year but they all kind of blur into this long reality that is:  I’ve been with Charlie longer than I’ve been without him. We met when I was 19. So now, at 41, I’ve been with him longer tha...

The 42nd Year is Underway
"Easter is about hope." That’s what the Australian-accented, boomerang-slinging
bunny in Rise of the Guardians says about his holiday. Easter is about possibility. Redemption. Renewal. It’s rather fitting that the end of The 41 st Year
is Easter week. It’s ...

Selling Myself in Bits & Pieces
I’d like to say I haven’t blogged here since November
because I’ve been crushing it in the 41 st year. In some ways, I have. Since January, I’ve added three titles
to my resume: Project Manager at the McNair Center for Entrepreneurship, Adjunct Instructor i...

Where ya been? Oh, right, it's #NaNoWriMo
So it's National Novel Writing Month or #NaNoWriMo2017 and I've been under a rock. I haven't worked out since Nov 1 though I have been getting up early every day. I've been writing. This year's project is a Neverland story which you can read more about here...

Live Event: Counting Crows and Matchbox 20
The last time we went to PNC Bank Arena in Charlotte,
Charlie and I misbehaved. We were there to see Kelly Clarkson and Maroon 5 and
Kristen (my sister) ended up babysitting us. Since then, we’ve done Red Rocks twice and basically gotten
our shit together. ...

Live Event: The Great American Solar Eclipse
Is it possible for something to be amazing and kind of a let down at the same time?  The word that comes to mind for yesterday’s eclipse experience is “confusing.”  For several months, Columbia has prepared and planned for the event. Parties and performance...

Live Event: The Girls Rock! Showcase at The Music Farm Columbia
Last week I sent Hollie to a Social Justice summer camp that
uses music as their medium to discuss issues related to gender, race, and
bullying. The first thing she said when she got in the car Monday afternoon
was, “Can I come back next year?” I said, “Let...
