As we reflect on the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade and House Majority leadership's abortion fiasco, let's make sure the lesson we learn is the right one.
The rigors of my craft and small business require constant balance -- sometimes quite literally -- both on and off stage. Along the way, I've honed strategies that can translate to anyone striving to achieve balance in their lives and create room for personal passion and creativity.
We all circle through our lives with the false impression we're alone in our personal experiences. A lack of shared stories keeps all of us in the dark about how something can affect so many people, especially a subject so shamed as abortion.

If you don't quit smoking, smoking will quit you. The tobacco addiction is hard to overcome but you can change your way and become addicted to life, fresh air, and deep breathing.
