In the Mix

2018, Bridget Adams, May

Somehow or other, we have made it back to Pride season. How is that even possible? That it’s been a year since last Pride? That Pride month is next month? That Bellingham Pride is in only two months? Usually, life seems very long to me, but not this year. This year, I would swear it […]

Avalanche of change

2018, April, Maria LaFollette-Bruno

Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely adore musicals. Wicked, Dear Evan Hansen ,Carrie, Heathers….I’ll listen to anything. The latest album that I have on repeat is Hairspray. The themes of antiracism, inclusion, and fighting for justice are as important today as they were back in the ‘60s when the show was set. “You […]
