    Today, I’m encouraging you to do something that most people would flat out refuse to do: I encourage you to wish your enemy/enemies well.  Now, before you add me to the list of your enemies for my suggestion, let me explain. Your enemy is the hero of their own story Let me start with one
  • In the Crowd: Lumphead, Roaming Bear and Codes within Codes
    Kenosha Creative Space hosted the talents of three local bands Saturday night: Lumphead (Brittany Lumley), Roaming Bear and Codes within Codes (Cody Cummings).  I had the pleasure of being a face in the crowd listening to the different stylings of the local artists.  And of course, I brought my camera along to share bits and
  • Along the Path: Perspective is key
    When I reflect on how I used to talk about sobriety and how I think of it now, I return to a thought: Perspective is key.  What does that mean when it comes to sobriety?  Perspective is the catalyst between passing thought and relapse.  The perspective of an addict For whatever reason, every addict will

    If I had to sum up Kenosha County musicians Spare Animals’ latest EP, “Better Winds”, it would be this: instrumental reverence and nostalgia for music of childhood coupled with the lyrical maturity of looking back decades later.
