You Are Not Alone

2020-11-2431:40

I riff on the uncertainty of 2020 and share my own ups and downs and how we can take care of ourselves despite this wacky year. We can't choose the circumstances, but we can choose how we respond. All of us are struggling. You are not alone.
Susie Lang's work as a photographer provides connection and voice to women over 60. Her subjects, which include well-known fashionistas, have told her "You just see me." We talk photography, Susie's project "women.60.plus."  the inspiration behind our work with women of a certain age, and how passion equals connection (and value) for our subjects. Follow Susie on Instagram at Women.60.Plus. and on her website at www.susielangphoto.com 
Kika and I speak about her latest book of poetry, "Occupied: Vienna is a Broken Man & Daughter of Hunger," which came to life as Kika  "foraged for her mother's memories" as her mother lost them to Alzheimer's to honor her mother. Her mother's childhood was in post-war Austria and a traumatic time of deep hunger. Kika reads two of her poems and we talk about what led her to write this collection, her creative process, the lingering trauma of post-war life on children, and how these works about a past time remain relevant today. Kika's language is delicious, her poetry vivid and rich, and readers will find themselves dropped into Austria after WW2. Her voice is powerful, unsentimental, and unwavering. "Occupied" will drop you deep inside the life of children, hungry and trying tragically to survive despite the war's ending.Learn more about Kika and her work at www.kikadorsey.com  
Animals have the power to take us on a journey of love, healing and a deeper connection to ourselves.
