Heather

HI! I have a dog who sleeps in a cat tree and a cat who comes when he's called. I'm fueled by coffee, music & optimism. Things like yoga and gardening fill my warm weather weekends. I strongly believe that mini golf IS a sport, words are weapons and beauty exists in the spaces between definition. Ask me anything...Except regarding Fight Club...I won't talk about Fight Club.

When A Friend’s Joy Causes You Pain…

Like it or not, this is an age of understanding and compromise. Blame (or credit) our political climate. I want to be the kind of person who listens, digests information and attempts to understand viewpoints different from my own. If you’ve been on Facebook, you likely understand the daily struggle. You know what it feels like to question everything you …

REALLY Seattle?

This is a great city. I’m so proud to live here. I believe one of our greatest assets is our artist community. I’m saddened to read about an incident that happened to Daniel Gray, a comedian who has made me laugh countless times (FOR FREE) at Jai Thai on Broadway. He’s funny. VERY FUNNY. If you subscribe to the saying, …

V-Day Why All The Haters?!

Have you noticed that it’s become trendy to hate Valentine’s Day? Complaints range from hating the commercialism to being proud of single-life. (And everything negative in between…) This behavior/attitude is not cute. It’s unnecessary. And what’s so horrible about giving and/or receiving Love? Full disclaimer: Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday. It has been since I was a kid. I …

Have 2017 Goals?

I’m not a big fan of the “New Year’s Resolution”. However, if YOU have good luck with them…Keep going! I’m cheering you on 🙂 I decided 2017 would be all about “Check-ins” for me. On the 1st of every month, I’d evaluate my goals and be honest with myself on my progress towards reaching them. So far, it’s working well. …

Womxn’s March Seattle

I was one of the 175,000 who marched through downtown Seattle Saturday. When combined with the 600+ marches spanning the globe, the estimated number is close to 5 million. It was a powerful and historic display of unity. I cried as 2 bald eagles circled above us, keeping pace for hours. Whether it was the signs being carried or the …

What Song/Songs Defined YOUR Year?

Is there a song that was in heavy rotation on YOUR life soundtrack for 2016? For me, the close of 2015 into 2016 was a transformative time. It was about surrendering to the things I couldn’t control, and embracing the things I could. It was about being flexible with my “plans” to accommodate my reality. No small feat for this …

With These Rings, in Port Townsend, lets YOU create your …

NO SPOILERS: Passengers (NOT A MOVIE REVIEW)

Passengers comes out tomorrow (12-21). I was lucky to see it early.   If you’ve ever seen a movie early, it’s A LOT OF PRESSURE. People want to know how it was, if they should see it in theatres (or rent) and they want to compare it to movies they know. PRESSURE. I’m not taking on this MASSIVE responsibility, nor …
