Year One: Brick By Brick

By |July 31st, 2016|

August 1, 2016 marks my one year anniversary of relocating to the East Coast and, as you can imagine, it leaves me feeling a little introspective. To be fair, introspective is kind of my default setting anyway so this is easier than you think. But […]

#TonysSoDiverse … And They Were … But

By |June 13th, 2016|

Although yesterday’s news headlines were dominated by tragedy, I’m happy to inject a little bit of light, beauty and art into the ether and share my respect and appreciation for the darn-near flawless awards ceremony that was the 70th Annual Tony Awards that took place […]

Now That Was A Thing!

By |April 15th, 2016|

March has come and gone, and April is about half over, yet somehow I feel like I’m still recuperating from my birthday month-long arts & culture extravaganza. “Extravaganza” may seem a bit strong of a word, but trust me, anything less would not do.

By |June 15th, 2015|

Last Saturday marked my fifth year volunteering for the Cadillac Barbie IN Pride Parade in Indianapolis. Ever since returning to Indy in 2010, I’ve made a point to stay involved in celebrating the diversity of art and culture in my community. Somehow spending one Saturday […]

My Year In A & C (2014)

It’s not surprising I’ve been in a nostalgic mood lately given we’re at year end, but I didn’t want to write a big, corny retrospective on how important this past year’s events have shaped my life. It’s too pretentious and, well, no one would care […]

My Next 100 Posts

By |November 24th, 2013|

I’ve started this blog entry so many times in the last week. Why? I’m anxious to mark not only the 100th post on my Lambent Letter blog, but I’m also excited to celebrate the 4 year anniversary of my website, Incandescere.

Still, I was nervous. What […]
