I have no idea if it’s ok to call Chicago “Chi-town” or if it’s like calling San Francisco, Cisco (please don’t). But we’re here, walking and talking with Kate, eating with Brendan (who is in school) and discovering what it’s like to live in a city where spring is but a dream. We did have sunshine yesterday (Kate was giddy) and we went to an amazing Mexican street fair (OMG, the best tacos ever!!!!) and saw tons of public art. And, walking on a bridge behind the Art Insitute, I came face-to-face with one of my favorite authors ever, who has influenced how I think about writing, religion and tight pants (life is too short for them), Anne Lamott (linking here to Bird by Bird and Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers). I was able to gather myself enough to tell her how much her writing has meant to me, and thank her…and she thanked me. And it was a moment. And her are some others.
It’s all personalI'm Kim and I have a few blogs (and perhaps an issue with over sharing, and too much time on my hands). My other two projects are www.fiftyfiftyvision.com and www.thisisplanbe.com. I also tweet at https://twitter.com/TheKimTackett and instagram at http://instagram.com/kimtackett. But here, it's all personal. I show up once a week, sometimes less, never more. I don't have a niche or a purpose or a plan. Just a few stories and pictures. Welcome to my personal space.
I write about stuff
