The best news is:  you don’t have to buy tickets or travel to New York to attend.

The entire event is live streamed so you can watch it on your computer.  Better yet, sync your computer with your telly and watch on the big screen.

Something broke in me this week.  It was palpable, and a surprise to me. I hadn’t been expecting it at all.

Of course it had to do with the results of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.

Yes something shifted.  I let go, gave up, turned inward.  I said, it’s not my world anymore.  I feel out of touch.

This is going to be a controversial post.  I know lots of you out there aren’t going to like it. Maybe I’ll even be wiped from your address book, or as we say today, contact list.  But I bet you’ll keep on reading.

No one sets out wanting to be the other woman.  We all want to be the woman.  But then life happens.  [Read more…]

Another good role model

The thing that appeals to me about fictional female sleuths is that they are fearless.   They are empowered women.  They live the life.  They are intuitive.  And they don’t suffer with getting lost or a bad sense of direction (which is the bane of my life). Female sleuths have a man in their past, but not in their present. [Read more…]

And whilst we’re on the subject of words… Women and the Internet are abuzz about the word “just.”   Thank you to ladybuginred, a Camp Liza reader, who commented in my last post, I’ve banished these four words on how she banished the word “just” from her vocabulary. [Read more…]
