It's been almost a month since I published a recommendation list. When I first set out to do these, I told myself that at the point it felt like another item on the to-do list, and not just fun, I'd pause. Now, I'm back to it, and I'm excited to share all of the delightful experiences I've had over the…

Typically before each listing, I wax poetic about one thing or another. This week, I don't want to wax poetic about anything. I'm more interested in letting the words be the words. I have been giving thanks a lot lately for having the language to describe my experience of the world. What has become clear to me is that when…

Lately, I've been seeing a lot of posts on social media with the sentiment, "This is the ghetto and I hate it here."

There is a lot to be angsty about, but…

A few years ago, I read a book called Calling in the One, and in it there was a challenge to write five pages of things you're grateful for. Five pages feels daunting, but it's not about the pages, it's about the energy generated by the pages. Spoiler Alert: By the time you get to page five, you've gone from…

"You can kill a man, but not an idea." These words, often attributed to civil rights leader Medgar Edgars, have been hanging out in my mind for the last couple of weeks. They are so widely applicable, because ideas take a long time to form and an even longer time to change. There's nothing like sitting in the house for…

Independence Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. With all of the unrest in our country, and abroad, it's safe to say that this 4th of July feels different. In the absence of parades due to social distancing, and fireworks now feeling more like bombs over Baghdad, it's hard to figure out how to celebrate Americana. The best…
