My name is Lauren Buckley.
I'm the daughter of the daughter of a farmer's daughter. I was raised in Wisconsin. Educated in Minnesota. I seem to be on a never ending tour of the Midwest via clients and companies. Opinionated since 1983. Sarcastic since somewhere around there.


These are my diggings into the registry of design, op-ed, digital and diction related pieces that pique my imagination.

His status as public jester, good-timing party-crasher, and Waldo-like impresario surely tells us things about Web culture, contemporary celebrity, and the ways in which people prefer their famous people to be both generous and too cool to care. Will we ever grow tired of these Murray moments? Is there such a thing as Peak Bill Murray, and then the backlash?

Don’t let anybody raise you. You’ve been raised. »

lettersofnote:



In 1945, weeks after graduating from high school and with no support from the child’s father, 17-year-old Maya Angelou gave birth to her only son. Two months later, desperate for independence, she moved out of her mother’s home, found accommodation of her own, and began to raise her son….

A woman who had such a way with words. RIP Maya.

I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature. My attachments are always excessively strong.
