3 Ways to "Read Art" at a Museum
My children are spoiled. In many ways, but in this article I'm referring to their exposure to arts and culture, and particularly to museums. They won't realize how spoiled they are until they grow up and realize that not everyone else's mom worked in museums let alone at a leadership level in museums and could provide unlimited access to the extraordinary.
Giving Up Hope

I Need to Appreciate My Side Hustle More
Part of being a full-time writer, one that REALLY wants to hit a few lofty targets and goals is struggling with patience. I have mentioned this a number of times in previous blogs I’ve written.

Write Here, Write Now: A Vocal Podcast

The Vocal Community Reacts to Roe's Reversal
The constitutional right to an abortion—granted to all U.S. citizens in 1973 in the case of Roe v. Wade—was overturned by the Supreme Court on Friday, drastically altering the future of health care and bodily autonomy in the United States. The Vocal Team recognizes and acknowledges that this is a deeply complex ongoing conversation, and many groups are divided over this issue. While some are celebrating, others are grappling with feelings of hopelessness, confusion, and grief due to the Court's decision. To aid our community, we have created a list of links and resources to inform and facilitate ongoing discussions around the subject of abortion rights in the U.S.
