When: Thursday // Weather: humid // Real life: work, then lecture event
You know I love a subtle accessory.
Yesterday after work I went to a lecture by Hon. Sarah Evans Barker. Who is she? Only the first female federal district court judge in Indiana, no big deal. I’ll just go ahead and be totally cliché and say she was an inspiration. This anecdote she told pretty much sums it up: Many years ago, someone who apparently had a less-than-ideal outcome in her courtroom wrote her a letter and called her a “degenerate old bag.” She had the quote turned into a needlepoint and hung it in her chambers. She is — as the kids say — squad goals. I also enjoyed hearing her referred to as “Judge Sarah.” Has a nice ring to it, don’t you think? 😉 On the other hand, a judge would make for a pretty boring style blogger.
