A Midwesterner by birth that has spent the last 25+ years in middle Tennessee, I am a liberal floating in a sea of southern conservatives. A critic-at-large spouting daily “rants” and “raves” to have a voice in the world while (hopefully) bringing humor to readers is my mission. Begun in March 2011, DiatribesAndOvations is an exercise in self-therapy designed to force me to think of something nice to say about someone or something every other day … a rants and raves opinion blog. In this crazy world, that’s not always an easy task.
By linking nostalgia and stories from my childhood to current events, I hope to learn from the changes I’ve seen in my life and share them with other like-minded folks.
As part of my ongoing self-therapy, I hope you’ll comment on what you read and participate in polls and discussions. Please sign up to get emails (daily or weekly), to follow on Twitter and “Like” on Facebook. And, please, share the posts you enjoy with folks that you think will find them interesting. I can’t have too many cyber-therapists.
Welcome … your arrival is met with ovation.
