In this blog I aim to write with punch and passion about the things I adore.
My aim is true: to use this blog to spark joy in followers’ lives. To bring people together. To give unusual insight into what’s going on.
Years ago a guy saw me holding a copy of Left of the Dial and asked if the title referred to politics.
“No. It refers to culture. I played alternative music on the radio that was dubbed Left of the Dial.”
My intent in using the Girl on the Left URL was to get at the theme of living your life left of the dial.
I don’t like that the word Left has been conflated with the Liberal political party.
My goal was to reclaim the word Left in the true sense of being progressive.
Two of the definitions of progressive on the Merriam-Webster online dictionary are:
1a: of, relating to, or characterized by progress.
b: making use of or interested in new ideas, findings, or opportunities.
As an Artist I’ve always been in the vanguard in writing and talking about things that are five years ahead of the times.
My motto is:
Individuality is what makes a person beautiful.
