If You Could Go Part-Time, Would You?

“You look so much more relaxed,” my friend said to me after a cup of coffee last week. I didn’t think of it that way, but she’s right. After working full time with three kids for 10 months, I got the opportunity to make a (much needed) change. I thought about giving up my job, but I love to write. When I fall asleep at night, I’m often writing stories or blogs in my head. It’s not uncommon for me to arise, turn on the computer and pound out a few paragraphs. It’s what I’ve done for nearly 20 years as a journalist and an avid fan of words. ...more

Women's Liberation: Why I Couldn't Have Lived at Any Other Time in History

The other night I was watching "Mad Men" -- a show ostensibly about the machinations of the Madison Avenue advertising industry of the mid-sixties, but in truth more about what the lives of women were like during that era -- when I realized something. The only time in history I could've ever existed was during the past forty years.  ...more

American Idol Recap: The Top Four Sing Songs From the Movies

At least no one sang "Against All Odds" or "I Will Always Love You" So, there's that. As we wind down Season 9 of American Idol; as even the Top Four don't get to sing two whole songs by themselves; as we're all wondering who will replace Simon; the end of the season looms, and there hasn't been one blow-you-away performance from this season's crop of performers. Some came close, definitely. But no one crossed over into a legendary performance. Am I right? ...more
