Making people and ideas findable
What an interesting week I had this week. I started the week of with losing a material thing and ended the week losing a person – I think, maybe, probably, I’m not 100% sure but it seems like it (although I hope not). Ironically enough losing the person made all the material loss so incredibly unimportant which really made me realize how little material things really mean.

Over the years, I have lost touch with many of my friends from high school. One group of friends from my old neighborhood gets together the night before the Indy 500 every year. For various reasons, I have been unable to go to this party for many years. This year was different. With a lot of extra effort I was able to make it.…Continue

Tomorrow marks my final day of work at the assisted living facility where I have worked for just over a year. With it comes an extremely unexpected mix of emotions.
This was my first position in the healthcare field, and only my second job. When I was hired in May of 2009, it was expected that this would be a summer job. Thanks to my acceptance…Continue

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.
How many of us can say we really know ourselves? Honestly, and embracing all who we are? It can be hard to embrace your true self. People are messy and we all make mistakes and who the hell wants to admit making mistakes. I know if I ever made any I wouldn’t want to admit it (kidding). I know there is a saying that youth is often wasted on the young and the older I get the more I agree. By the time I really know…Continue

The art of being wise is knowing what to overlook.
So much for ever being wise. I would like to say I don’t sweat the small stuff, and I don’t, unless the small stuff really p***** me off. Then I just can’t help myself. I wish I could but I can’t. Maybe I should take up . . .

Well, I am finally done with typesetting and editing on the book, “Help! My 401(k) Has Fallen – And Must Get Up!” . The process of editing reminded me of watching a potter making a clay jar. We’ve all seen the image of a lump of wet clay on a turntable, spinning while the potter’s hands mold the clay into a beautiful jar.
I actually finished writing in…

As the final work in the alphabet I really smiled when I saw this one. Zanyism means buffoonery which in itself is a great word.

I spent some time evaluating sentiment towards BP on Facebook based on the number of 'pro' and 'con' pages. It's not surprising to find that there are significantly more anti-BP pages on Facebook in wake of the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster. The largest 'con' page,…Continue

My office door is closed. No clients for an hour and my phone is turned off. I even shut down my email. I’m siting on a wonderful comfy purple couch with my feet up typing on my new 13 inch MacBook Pro. Feels like a guilty pleasure. No calories - I’m leading a workshop on Women Food and God so I have become much more conscious of what I am putting into my mouth. Taking time for me is…Continue
