Okay, so this is pretty awkward. I’m trying to decide whether to keep my blog here on ChicagoNow, or to jump ship altogether and blog exclusively on my personal website, www.christinewolf.com. I’ve been blogging here on ChicagoNow since 2012. Prior to that, I’d blogged on a WordPress site, figuring out how to be an author while writing about... Read more »

Finding The In-Between. Day 8 of 365

Which life would you rather live? One filled with connections, activity, and motion? Or one of autonomy, calm, and stillness? Thankfully, we don’t have to choose one lifestyle over the other, since an authentic life isn’t black or white. And yet, what’s been happening in our country strikes me as profoundly so — this visceral sense of “we’re right” and... Read more »

    Christine Wolf

    I tend to cover life's ups and downs. I don't shy away from the tougher, more emotional stories. While I'm always willing to voice an opinion, it sometimes contradicts my innate desire to please everyone at all times. Such is this crazy life, I suppose.
