I see the tourists, taking a pictures,
Always coming ever closer,

We start with a cold super moon - and finish with a blue moon/blood moon, lunar eclipse. How magically taunting is that? Expect WICKED energy that will make you want to give mortals a tongue-lashing about self-love, altruism, and respecting women. Normally ...

HAPpy People: Cindy Werhane

What is this about the rumor that you started out doing Synchronized Swimming?
CW: When I was young, we lived blocks away from a Park District Pool. I spent as much time as possible there. By enrolling in Synchro I could start my day there at 10-12 for synchro, 12-1 for swim team, 1-5 for open swim, 6-9 for open swim. Once I was old enough to life guard, I had the option of teaming swim lessons ...
