Tomorrow is the last day that Dianne’s Restaurant in the Atwood building will be open.
I’m a longtime fan of Julia O’Malley. In fact, I’ve already rhapsodized about her writing, here: “Anchorage Never Stops Being Interesting.” But I’d never actually met her in person until a few weeks ago when she graciously accepted my invitation for coffee and agreed to be interviewed for my TEDx project.
Because even our beautiful birch need something cozy and colorful in the midst of a windy winter… More here: Knitters add color to Anchorage Museum trees.
Holly Brooks was one of the first names I thought of when I started putting together names for my “Dream it. Do it.” project. If you’re not familiar with her story, check it out here; basically, she transformed herself from coach to Olympian when she began pursuing her dream.
Last year, after I wrote about TEDxAnchorage one of my dearest and oldest friends commented, “When can I get tickets for Gretchen Fauske’s 2015 TedxAnchorage presentation? If you speak… they will come…seriously, do it.”* and I thought “Well, why not apply to speak next year and see what happens?”
Next year is here… and I was selected as a speaker! Cue elation… and a lot of work to do TEDx justice!
