A Fine Whine

On Saturday I, like so many others, joined the Women’s March in my home state. It was inspiring and exhilarating to be with 100,000 other people who see the world as I do. In a world that has seemed to turn upside down, where the press secretary claims the current president had “the largest audience […]

Opting out of the zombie apocalypse

Let’s just say that in the event of a zombie or post-election apocalypse, I’m not the gal you want by your side. As the brutality of Walking Dead amps up each season, I am more inclined to think the lucky ones were those who were killed early on. The ones who survived not only had […]

mermaids singing each to each

I love artistic endeavors, and I don’t have children, so I’m starting a blog. Let me back up. I have been reading voraciously lately. Well, listening mostly, probably 70%, and even though my boyfriend would disagree, audiobooks are reading in my mind. I use my Kindle Fire too, and occasionally, even a real live paper […]
