Handling Harassment

It’s the story that refuses to die. A full 20 years after Peyton Manning was accused of sexual harassment by a female athletic trainer at the University of Tennessee, people are talking about it like it was yesterday. I already knew what a vast majority of sports media and fans discovered in the last month. It wasn’t a secret. It’s a long and [...]

100: Fifty-Two Weeks

You can’t lead anyone else further than you have gone yourself. ~Gene Mauch I kept complaining that my grown children wouldn’t clean up their rooms in my house, even though they’ve both had their own homes for years. I even wrapped up some of their things and gave them their own stuff for Christmas! My husband Bill was also tired of hearing my [...]

Creative Tools to Shatter Grief

WHEN I WAS young I made a vow to myself – to live my life as creatively as possible. I expressed myself through dance and choreography, writing journals, poetry and songs. My childhood career as a member of a family folk singing group gave me the opportunity to explore the power of music to connect people and to highlight the need for social [...]

The Politics of Penis Power

A WOMAN COULD win the presidency and men are determined to show us she doesn’t possess the right stuff, literally, a penis. Donald Trump and Marco Rubio are comparing penis size in their run for the presidency.  What a difference Hillary has made in the 2016 race. A woman could win the presidency and men are determined to show us she doesn’t [...]

Single and Ready for Change

I was scrolling through my Facebook feed when I saw that one of my friends posted the following article, “The Single American Woman” from NYmag. Written by Rebecca Traister, the article was adapted from her book, All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation. The piece highlights the fact that this growing [...]

A Question for “Everyone Is Gay”

buckybarnesfanatic asked: “Is it okay to call myself gay when I am bisexual? Gay has become such an umbrella term that it feels much easier, but I will stop if I’m not allowed to.” — Kristin Says: Okay, okay, okay, okay. There is a LOT going on here, so let’s take this apart a tiny bit, shall we? You are ALLOWED to call yourself a giraffe if [...]

There’s a Lot to Scream About These Days

I MISSED SCREAMING. When I taught in upstate New York, I used to pick up my little nieces on Saturday mornings and take them with me to the car wash. We pretended we were in a horror film. By the time those big steamy, sudsy strips started slapping the car, we were in full-throated screams. Their little eyes bugged out, veins popped in their [...]

Why I Wrote the Waste-Free Kitchen Handbook

After more than two years in the making, and just days after the US and world announced goals to reduce food waste, I’m thrilled to say that Waste-Free Kitchen Handbook is here–released today! I describe it as a “light-hearted kitchen reference book packed with handy information to help reduce the amount of food wasted in [...]

The Year to Cheer for Women’s Rights

IN 1968, WHEN I was in college, I got my first camera. It was a small, cold machine that felt incredibly powerful — not like a gadget or a tool, but like a grenade, with the power to blow the lid off something big.
