What does a former world class bodybuilder, teacher, personal trainer, Reiki master, wife and mother add to her list of accomplishments? The answer is a newly published author. Meet Kassie Alnwick, her new book is entitled Borrow My Tribe: Women’s Wisdom from your Chosen Sisters. Mrs. Alnwick is also The Wicked Warrior. The Wicked Warrior is her aptly named superhero/heroine nature and spirituality. The name symbolizes her invincible strength and positivity in body, mind and spirit. She strives to assist you in turning up the gas, so your pilot light stays ignited and guides you towards your specific lighted pathway.

Kassie is a vivacious and spirited individual. She is a motivational speaker who has been on a mission towards personal enrichment throughout her life. She calls it inspirational roulette. Kassie has found pieces of positivity in conversations from people that she has encountered in her various careers, friends, mentors and books found in traditional book stores and antique shops. She posed a question to herself and her tribe: What book did you read that made or contributed to who you are today? Kassie read almost all of the books on the list. She has been applying, gathering and using all of this information towards inspiring herself and others. During her Reiki coursework, she learned about chakras and affirmations. She has been building a spiritual toolbox and wanted to impart this new wisdom to the masses. This intentional roulette is the foundation of Borrow My Tribe.

Her book starts with the cover. The title invites the reader to borrow Kassie’s tribe. There are people who are like minded and we will find other tribe members by reading this book. The cover is warm and supple, encouraging the reader to bond with it before opening the book and turning the page. Inside the covers, there are three main sections: Words of Wisdom, Affirmations and Spiritual Tools. There is a bonus section of lined journal pages to take notes and write your thoughts at the end of the book. The encouraging words have a pleasing font and spacing for ease of reading and pondering. It is a book as a lighthouse of words that provides direction for your life’s journey.

A great gift for any gender, Borrow My Tribe: Women’s Wisdom from your Chosen Sisters is available in paperback only via and can be ordered from your local bookstore.

Opinion: Clinton Market

I must have been asleep on a bench at Jennings Landing because I missed the original memorandum. A brand new economic development plan is ready to be initialized in downtown Albany in 2022. It is called the Clinton Market. It will be located across from the Palace Theater and next to the Federal Building, which is situated between North Pearl Street, Wilson Street and Broadway. Currently, it is a deserted empty space, which will soon become a focal point for all local and out of town inhabitants to enjoy. According to the press release, it will have pop up shops, an outdoor stage, fountains and seating for all to sip, luxuriate and adore. There are renderings available, so you can view the forthcoming jubilance of the space in the day and at night. As another jewel in the crown of local economic development, this venture will connect the Clinton Avenue neighborhood to the new Albany Skyway park which is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2021. Data, research, studies, calls to action and money are components necessary to create change. It would be appreciated by the taxpayers, if the ideologues in this city would stop going to Manhattan and Brooklyn to look for the answers towards making Albany great again.
