Show Notes

In the first of this two-part series for All I Know, we meet Grace and learn about one of the things that runs a thick highlighter over her strength. Even when one can survive - or even thrive in the midst of it - I think we can all agree that cancer sucks.

Apart from being a Survivor, Grace fascinates us with her life as a Medico Legal Death Investigator and Aerial Circus Artist. Yep. She hangs from ceilings. By chains. And makes art and poetry with her body. "As my occupation, I dissect death. At the same time, I actively stare down my own mortality and shake my fist at its taunting. And also - I have, in fact, run away with the circus." Who can say they have walked these shoes? Only Grace.

Pick up the first part of Grace's story here and prepare to catch even more light in Part 2!

(S1:E19) All I Know - Bonus Episode: The Family Farm

In this episode of "All I Know," several generations of the women on my family reflect on their time on the farm in Nebraska. Each, depending on the time of her birth, experienced the farm differently. Even so, many of the lessons from farm life were the same. Listen in, and catch all the light you can! As you make your way through this conversation, you will have to forgive the fact that we sound like we're huddled in a tin can! Picture these women huddled around a microphone - but not too close, because it's scary to be recorded! - with sound bouncing off the wood floor and the exposed vents of my mother's loft-style living room. We thank you in advance for forgiving our imperfection. ...
