Stories Are What Connect Us

Eavesdrop on my conversations with dear friends as we share memories and trade stories of surviving & thriving.

Heres a Confession

I picked one that read ”If you were to teach somebody something, what would you teach them?” I said, yoga. Then Jimmy pulled a question. “What was an experience you had where you didn’t go with your gut?” He replied, “That time I ordered a lamb burger in Kathmandu!”

Connie Nelson

In head-to-toe denim, a streak of blue winking in her hairdo, the statuesque Texan Connie Nelson drops into my Bankers Hill home to share stories of life on the road.

Ruby Mazur

I chat with Rolling Stones’ “Mouth & Tongue” artist Ruby Mazur about pulling off the greatest scam in rock n’ roll history.

A Conversation with Richard & Diane Nares

There is nothing more satisfying than spending time around your kitchen table with old friends. On a bright, Saturday morning, Jimmy and I welcomed two of our most cherished friends to the house: Richard and Diane Nares. Richard had just completed a 1,700 mile run.

Bruce Springsteen

I go backstage with “The Boss,” bearded men, and booted women.

Learning To Begin Again

In which Ingrid sits down with “The Central Park Jogger,” to discuss loving your brain and life after the attack.


Next Up: Trisha Meili, “The Central Park Jogger”


@ ingridcroceart

At your best, you are everything all at once.

My heart is full with appreciation for the support I received at this past weekend’s @Vanguardculture Breakthrough 70’s event. The 70’s was a pivotal decade for me and my family, this event was the perfect ode to that time.
I am blessed to have my family around me, especially my Mom who turns 97 this year! Happy Easter!
Today, on the 30th anniversary of the brutal attack on my dear friend, Trish Meili, I am honored to share our conversation.
“I had a small period of no memory - from about five o’clock the evening the attack happened, until about seven weeks later... I couldn’t worry about the future.

Being able to roll over. Or touch my nose. That made me feel better: oh! I’m seeing improvement.

One of the greatest advantages of my brain injury was that I focused on the present moment.

I’ve often called that time ‘Learning To Begin Again.”
...Trisha Meili *

Trish is simply a survivor. As “The Central Park Jogger” she inspires so many around the world with her determination, her strength, her spirit.

I hope her words give you courage to face life’s trials! 💜
