Drums please! Summer, Summer, Summertime!

My semester is over and it was around 80 degrees today, so it's time to pull out the Fresh Prince.

I won't lie to y'all, 2014 is not going that great. But on the other hand, it's going pretty good. I guess that's how life is sometimes. Cue the "Facts of Life" theme song! As Joey would say, "How you doin'?"


I have a lot of stuff to deal with in terms of #PhDLife. More soon, I hope on this. I also have a growing pile of books to read for review on my dining room table. I'm sure Tony wishes my pile of books would move somewhere else, but that is certainly a goal for this summer - to get my mess of a home office in usable form.

I also have a backlog of reviews to write from places I've been, some products I've used and books I've read. Yes, I'm still working on my "Lean In" review. Hey, people are still asking for it.

And yes, my loyal readers, "Summer of Feminista" will be returning. The call for participants will be coming soon.

Until then, grab a drink and enjoy...

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show

Book Review: Wolfpack by Abby Wambach

Less than a year ago, Abby Wambach took the stage at Barnard's commencement and gave a speech that shook many, including myself, to the core . Her speech went viral and I made the above image in order to share the highlights of her speech. Earlier this month Abby released the speech in book form. Wolfpack : How to Come Together, Unleash Our Power, and Change the Game is short (less than 100 pages) but is much more than just her speech . You get a peek into how the speech came together and why she said everything. And because the book is short and is an expanded speech, it moves quickly. I feel that it moves with the same ferocity that Abby use to move down a soccer field. And you might find yourself cheering as she takes you through the story. Abby has always been one of my favorite players. The way she ran amok on the pitch was exactly the way I felt I played sports. Never caring how you looked and giving it your all. Leaving it all on the field. When she retired from socc
