My name is Wendy Ritch.  I’m a terribly optimistic philosopher-artist-spiritual explorer who enjoys pontificating about life, the universe and everything.  I’m also a child of the eighties, which is why this blog is named after a B-52s song.  You can take the grrrl outta the era but you can’t take the era outta the grrrl.  People keep telling me that I should start blogging and I’ve resisted until now; I’m on vacation this week (7/4/10) and a workaholic so I needed something to keep me busy.  My blog consists of punditry punctuated by original art.  I hope you’ll subscribe to Detour Thru My Mind and make an honest blogger out of me.
