Summer Trip to MASS MoCA

Written on July 30, 2017

MASS Moca is an art gem in the Berkshires.  We go a few times a year and were drawn in by the Nick Cave exhibit first and foremost, though there was the surprise of my 2nd Robert Rauschenberg exhibit in two months and other exhibits of light and wonder. Nick Cave at MASS MoCA But…

Book Review: Nadia Bolz-Weber, Sinner and Saint

Written on July 29, 2017

Nadia Bolz-Weber is someone I follow on Twitter– she seems like my kind of fierce and funny tattooed human.  I am delighted my local library branch had her memoir “Pastrix: the Cranky Beautiful Faith of a Sinner and Saint” available. This book is meaty and memorable. There is so much to it that I decided…

Trust As A Spiritual Practice In An Age of Unrest

Written on July 17, 2017

Trust is one of those themes I have been coming across on the daily of late. In my case, I’ve been contemplating how to be less anxious and trust the universe.  Other friends are facing the specter of betrayal and question how to trust particular people.  One friend even shared that one of her rules is not to…

Patriotic Travels in Washington, D.C.

Written on July 13, 2017

I cried my way through Washington, D.C. I was overcome patriotic feeling: loving my country, loving our people, and wanting us to be more brave and open than we are at this current moment in history.  But D.C. showed me that this nation has seen ups and downs before- we shall overcome. Lincoln and McClellan Our…

A Romantic Alexandria, Virginia Wedding

Written on July 12, 2017

Seeing a beloved friend find the person she belongs with is a glorious experience. Marriage, in my opinion, is the most romantic proposition of all.  Nothing  screams romance  for me more than committed, true love.  To pledge your troth to one another in the face of any future adversity is to whisper faith and hope into…

A Brief Adventure in Portland, Maine

Written on July 3, 2017

Portland, Maine is a gem of cobbled city streets with  fine food smells wafting in the air. I was only there for a couple of days for a business trip but I intend to go back (soon!) to Portland, Maine. It was charming, a little crunchy, and full of music and food. Food in Portland, Maine…

Dr. Alice Green- A Justice Journey Interview

Written on June 11, 2017

I’ll admit to being a but flustered interviewing Dr. Alice P. Green. I would get to once again see the woman who granted me my first college internship and who is a leading activist for justice in Upstate NY.  Being dazzled and flustered is why I have no photograph of the legendary activist. But photos aside,…
