Our Perfect Gift: A Book

Our Perfect Gift: A Book

We dream of a bottomless gift card to Vroman’s, endless armfuls of books hauled from the many Little Free Libraries around (only to be replaced or shared again, of course), a 2-week vacation where we’re grounded, directed to sit and read and only read (it must be a command in order to prevent the ever-looming […]

Open Mic of All Kinds, For All Ages

Open Mic of All Kinds, For All Ages

Joe Normal and Gigi Hutchinson never thought they’d be working together. In the same place; within the same space. Primarily because Joe is a musician and Gigi is a hairdresser. Ah, po-tay-to, po-tah-to. Music and hair styling are vastly different arts, but they’re not polar opposites. Perhaps, they are perfect foils. When the opportunity arose, […]
