Although I’ve always had a fair complexion, every year when the weather gets nice I am struck with an inexplicable feeling that my skin has magical properties that make it immune to sunburns. Every year, my delusion is shattered into a million pieces and I stock up on sunscreen. Then winter hits and I get sunburn amnesia once again, mentally building up to next spring’s annual charring.
A few weeks ago, some friends and I headed out into the sun for cocktails, hats, and horses – also known as Steeplechase. It was a chilly spring in Nashville, and this [...] Read More

Imagine greater Nashville with 1 million more people. Imagine our metro area is the size of Denver’s.
Now imagine what Nashville could be like in 25 years if we don’t creatively plan for such growth. By 2040, the region will absorb 1 million more people, the ratio of “traditional” families will change, Millennials will dominate the workforce and Middle Tennessee will be even more diverse.
NashvilleNext is a broad effort to involve the community – as in real people who live and work here – in creating a vision for the city’s future. An event at 10 a.m. Saturday at [...] Read More

All of this was interspersed with months of virtually no income at all. (Unemployment, if you’ve ever been unfortunate enough to need it, is woefully inadequate. The government formula seems to be: your old salary multiplied by number of months it will take you to find work divided by screw you, we’re going to give [...] Read More
