Confession time—I am a huge fan of rap music. I friggin’ love it. People are usually surprised when they learn about my genre-specific obsession. I mean, 5’9” brunettes from Texas who know every word to every Nelly song ever written aren’t exactly a dime a dozen. So I guess I can’t blame them. But know […]

If you need a humbling experience, please start practicing yoga.   Seriously.   It will blow your mind.   Not surprisingly, I was fully unprepared for the humility that yoga forced on me.   I’m no stranger to athletics.

We’ve all seen it.   It’s a pretty ubiquitous scenario these days.   The characters may change, but the problem persists.   It looks innocent at first. It appears fairly normal. It even seems to mean well.   But then, oh then, on closer inspection, you see it for what it really is.   Possibly […]
