Women In History: Sandra Day O'Connor

When Sandra Day O’Connor became the first woman on the Supreme Court, I barely noticed anything political. But that day I paid attention to the news! Though she served on the Supreme Court for twenty-five years, Justice O’Connor still thinks of herself as a cowgirl; she doesn’t miss an opportunity to talk about her roots on the ranch where “you have to make things work, you have to make things run.”
PBS’ To The Contrary aired an interview with Justice O’Connor and Cokie Roberts. If you missed it, it’s just over six minutes, so take a look: https://video.pbs.org/video/2206371503
Today is Justice O’Connor’s birthday – 82 years young! Happy Birthday to an amazing woman.
 

What are the Maine Diaries?

The Maine Diaries is a fun look at my annual adventure to New England where I unwind from normal life and reconnect with myself.

I was captivated by the Maine Coast on my first trip there in the late 90’s. In the years since, I’ve traveled up and down the coast from Kittery to Calais but I spend most of my Maine time Downeast. I love the adventures I have and the chance to unwind from the world and restore my inner clarity. I chronicle my experiences in The Maine Diaries.
