…Change From Day To Day

This week marked a few milestone anniversaries. On Thursday, the Beatles’ “Abbey Road” album turned 50. Coincidentally, on that same day, the 2WC turned ten. Milestones provide an opportunity to reflect and take stock. When I wrote my first blog post ten years ago, I had no idea what the 2WC would become. My plan…

…Have A Spine

It’s Banned Books Week, which provides the perfect opportunity to discuss censorship. (Sounds riveting, right?) Books and reading are near and dear to my heart. The idea that anyone would be threatened by a book used to be laughable (emphasis on the “used to”). In the past few years, we’ve all become all too well…

…Keep Fighting

Today’s post is part Woman Crush Wednesday, part motivational speech, but most importantly, it’s all “Game of Thrones.” (It’s been far too long) When they read the nominees for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series this Sunday, it won’t surprise you to hear Gwendoline Christie’s name among them. Or at least it shouldn’t. Her…

…Think You’re In Control

Welcome to the final week of summer. For real this time. Seriously, the arrival of autumn is no longer just a pumpkin spice pipe dream. It’s practically here. Fall’s arrival and summer’s end means that we’re mere days away from the Emmy Awards and the beginning of a new television season. Yes, that is still…
