How ARE you? In my digital travels I am hearing a lot of breaking-point tension, especially here in Winnipeg where two days of heavy snow snatched spring from us, though only for a few days.

TV April 11-14: Shameless, Queen of the South, The Nevers, McQueen, My Love, Kim’s Convenience, Why Did You Kill Me, Dad Stop Embarrassing Me, The Secrets She Keeps, The Circle,

I have discovered there are two kinds of people (who matter).

The other type is my tribe; not the sloths/unfortunates that the first group... Continue Reading →

I thought I knew Tina Turner from her place in rock history, from her days with and after Ike (and her telling of that story, first in People magazine way back), from her Tiny Dancer strutting, from my mother's adoration of her ("Look at her dance!
