BE BRAVE! TAKE A RISK!
Share a story in our Independence Travel Writing Contest!
We are looking for an article about your act of freedom-a place you chose or that allows you to feel free. Be inspired by Sara Barielles’ song, Brave, and share “What you want to say.” We want to “See you Be Brave…and start speaking up!” Where are you most able to be your true self? In Nellie Bennett’s Only in Spain, she watches a flamenco dancer and shares wanting “to attack my life with that passion, to live with her joy and her devotion to her art… I’d wanted to feel and smell and taste life, and live like that dancer on the stage in Seville, risking that triple turn, never sure she wouldn’t spin right off the stage.” Your place of freedom might be far across the globe or in your own backyard.
Please enjoy all the videos from my trip to Puerto Rico with Richard Bangs and Orbitz! I made a special playlist to host them all. Click here.
I wrote about our journey for Frankly Penn, the alumni blog of the University of Pennsylvania: Filming in Puerto Rico. I recently wrote about being at my 25th college reunion! Living an “As Is” Life in a World that Wants “So Perfect!” Thank you to my roommates, Joyce and Barb, for all our amazing times years ago and then together again on campus!
Barb and I were honored to walk in graduation! Video and article about hearing John Legend (class 1999) speak will be coming soon! We spent the morning between the Penn Parade and wearing graduation robes at the Philadelphia Art Museum with Living Beyond Breast Cancer for YOGA ON THE STEPS with 1500 friends!
