21st Century Pen Pals

It’s been said that there is an invisible thread connecting those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place or circumstance.  This thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break. I am not certain how much stock I put in fate or destiny but I do believe that souls are connected.  Don’t […]

“A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.”~Muhammad Ali Today I make a pledge: As I grow older, I never want to become a bitter, cranky, unhappy, close-minded “get off my lawn” kind of person (I do draw the line at […]

That Which Illuminates My Soul

looking up and out awe, wonder, glory, majesty, peace, tranquility sometimes chaos, sometimes calm feeling both infinitesimally small and immensely powerful permission to withdrawal in comfort or explode into possibility; the skies guiding mood, heart and soul look up, look out and soar!

Here’s The Deal

Here’s the deal:  In every classroom, family, friendship, work environment, social media interaction, politics, religion, etc. — It’s Time! It’s time to take off the masks.  It’s time to reveal our true selves.  It’s time to get down and dirty in the muck and mire, time to put our cards on the table, time to lose […]

68 People

Sitting near the back of the conference room, I found my eyes wandering often to the people in the room. Instead of focusing purely on the topic of regulatory compliance in the IT sector of banking, I found my mind wondering about the 68 attendees. What is going on their lives right this moment— Are […]

Partying in Pajamas

Once upon a time, 20-25 years ago, I recall getting ready to go out and it was 9 pm.  We knew the clubs would be fun, loud and crazy and that we wouldn’t be back home until 3 am. Fast forward to present time. While heading out to dinner or a show is still fun […]
