Sister Suffragette

This year I’ll be celebrating Mother’s Day… with a brand new Birth Control! That’s right kids. I’m taking charge of my reproductive health. A woman can make these decisions, you know. It’s a thing now. I was inspired to write about it due to a HuffPo piece this week.  Women have been sharing their stories […]

Golden Palace

2012 started with a flight to Minneapolis for another tour with the National Theatre for Children. Touring taught me so much about myself – I wouldn’t have traded it for the world. I met new friends, reconnected with old, and made some kids laugh. I dined at Chef Michael Symon’s Lola Bistro, hiked Appalachia, had my […]

Her entire family was there to go through this difficult time together. I return to North Carolina with […]

A Summer Winter in Ohio

Dear Old Shiz

Today I took some time to visit the Cincinnati Christian University. In the 40’s, both my grandparents attended what was then called the Cincinnati Seminary. Later, in 1977, my uncle Mark graduated from the same Seminary. I have heard countless stories from the whole family about the seminary and their days there. Grandma Martha would tell […]
