When I came back to America after a very rough trip through Europe, I was virtually destroyed mentally. I thought I was an awful person, I had no respect for myself, and I absolutely didn’t love myself. I won’t get into why I felt this way, but it is important to my story. I struggled constantly with my self-worth. I would talk down to myself. I told myself that I was ugly and, while I knew I could be a contributing member of society, I didn’t want to be. I just wanted to stay in my room all…
Last night at our regular University Heights Association board meeting I discovered that no one would be available to attend the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony celebrating the completion of the Lead/Coal project we've all been surviving. As a freelance writer with a…
As part of the Women and Creativity series for the month of March 2011, I will be joining fellow performance artists Vivian Nesbitt and Linda Martin in a workshop of movement, meditation, and imagination. It will be a day of inspired creativity,…
Yeah, me, too. "Obsessed" would likely be a better word. Or "sick with grief and anxious about the future of an ocean that has been ruined not just by corporate mismanagement and a lack of government oversight but also thanks to our ridiculous and gluttonous consumption of resources" (Okay, that was 37 words.)
Anyway, wouldn't it be nice to hold hands on Saturday with some other people who feel sad and upset and angry and freaked out by the whole thing, too?
Yun has two boys. They have taught her lessens in life like no others by cracking her up laughing all the time.
When the kids were younger, one Saturday afternoon, after a week’s work, learning , laundry and cooking, Yun felt unsupported wishing things could be a little easier for her as a single mother. Yun retired herself on the couch. That day, there was a play date for the boys. As she drifted in and out between the two worlds, she heard one of her sons say: “Sssh, my mommy is… Continue

The one-woman show was brought by Granhoj Dans of Denmark Thursday night to kick off this year’s Global Dance Fest. And kick it does: this piece alternates between visceral, cerebral, and dreamlike as our heroine moves and sings in ways you’ve never heard or seen. I promise.
I won’t give away too much (not that there’s an actual plot), but multi-instrumentalist Anne plays herself as a musical instrument--with a cello bow--while vocalizing the resultant sounds. And she has a voice,… Continue
The USA Network's TV Show "In Plain Sight" filmed a few scenes of the next season's opener here at our small inn this past Monday. They set the place up as they liked it on Friday, including moving out Rol's pool table and turning that room into a bedroom. Our dining room became a living room again for the first time in 9 years. They returned Monday just before 6 am to set up and start the shoot. They were here all day and the last of them were out of here just before 9pm.
