    Finding Joy Through Improv with Empire Star Antoine McKay

    in Health

    The first rule of Improv.....Say YES, and...


    As I sat through my son's improv classes over the past few months, I soon realized how instrumental Improv can be in working with those with dementia, dealing with chronic conditions and finding joy in caregiving.  This was a huge Ah Ha moment for me.  Finding joy for patients, caregivers and the entire health care team is essential.  


    I am excited and honored to be able to sit down in conversation with Antoine McKay.

    Hillary in Warren's Field of Gravity

    in Politics Progressive

    The listing and the shuffling of Presidential candidates are great theater. We all figured Republicans to dance and change stage positions. Far more fascinating has been the quick and deep Elizabeth Warren-ization of Democrat hers-to-lose nominee Hillary Clinton.


    Pardon the parochialism, but Sen. Warren is hot stuff...and he's ours in Massachusetts. Well, my favorite ex-hick became a Harvard Law professor (likewise her non-hick husband) and wealthy. Yet, she emerged as a major voice for the new populism. She's even more outspoken than Sen. Bernie Sanders.(I-VT).


    Having had to tell supporters, worshipers and the media that she definitely won't run for POTUS, Warren is still in the raxe — as the touchstone for liberals, progressives, and well, sensible folk. 


    I'll hit on how Hillary as cannibalized Warren's policy, to good effect. After all, it's her one chance to sway lefties and indies who have been indifferent at best to her candidacy.. Meanwhile, poor Republicans run hither and yon putting o the varioua costumes of different troupes of right-wingers.
