• Saved from Quitting Music (8/23/2022) - I did not know if or when I would return to making music. I might have stopped entirely if something hadn’t happened in February 2011.
  • Becoming an Improviser in 36 Measures (2/12/2022) - I spent an hour with 36 measures of music.... I was not practicing, not repeating a measure or a phrase for perfection, not playing through the whole piece for memorization...
  • Who’s in a Portrait Gallery? (10/14/2021) - ...I didn’t read about it before visiting with my husband and toddler. I felt slightly nervous, however, about whether the region where I was born and spent my childhood and adolescence would be represented honestly. Would the exhibit do more than celebrate notable art by and about black people?
