NOW: November 2015
-Still living in Austin TX. Just moved to a new house. We’re getting solar panels!
-Still married, still have two kids and two dogs.
-I say “no” a lot now. I used to say “yes.”
-I work out, five days a week: weights, running, basketball. I love being strong.
-I have scaled way back on music. I sing, better and better all the time, every Sunday at St. David’s Episcopal Church in the 9:10 a.m. Bethell Hall Family Service. Looking forward to our Christmas Eve services.
-I am not rehearsing with a band, booking gigs, schlepping equipment, and/or asking everyone to come to my shows. I can’t say I miss all of that.
-I still think about music, writing, and creating–projects I’d like to finish, goals I’d like to achieve. But it’s just so hard, as a mom, to feel pulled in so many directions. Right now I am happy to not be striving toward those goals. I don’t really understand how or if these things work out…ultimately I think that, if it’s meant to be, all of these other loves will find a place in my life again at some point.
-I just finished my first season with the Austin Women’s Basketball League. I had a great coach and team and won “Most Improved Player” for my division!
-I am working with my husband, managing his psychiatry practice. As far as day jobs go, it is great–I have a lot of passion for a) helping people to access affordable and high quality mental health care, and b) creating a great workplace. For NOW, this is where I am investing my badass organizational, financial and strategic talents.
-Parenting my kids is still my greatest, all-consuming passion. They are awesome!
-I still live with enough hope to spread around to those around me. I still care about making the world a better place.
