Why it’s OK to take a Gap Year After Sixty

Whoa… my husband Sam and I are starting our Gap Year today, 40 years after we were supposed to take time out before starting real life. Wait, we’ve had a real life. This is a little meta. Don’t worry; Voxie Media will continue full speed ahead as a location-independent enterprise. A gap year, as you may know, is an intentional “time out” […]

Three words for 2013: Fearless, Imperfection and Storytelling

I was going to post this on New Year’s Day, but then productive procrastination set in. I’m in good company. Not everyone publishes their New Year’s resolutions on Jan. 1st.

In fact, I can’t remember the last time I felt this excited. It seems everyone wants to write and publish a […]

Parsing the genius of Steve Jobs

Today is a sad but provocative day as so many people try to articulate precisely why Steve Jobs (who died yesterday at age 56) was a genius and a visionary.
