A little re-intro video.
Where I’ve Been
I feel like I should be putting up a "Hello World" post as I have been away from this space for so long. I'm writing in here now to summarize a week that has been rather mind blowing which is also a culmination of the past 18 months or so which required my full attention... Continue Reading →
Where you can find me
After a lot of years juggling many different things that I both wanted, and needed to do in addition to my day job, now that the high school years are over, I am taking a break.

Unexpected connections, sunglasses and – chi?

Riding in the sunset for a while
Photo by @KCAlfredphoto Torrey Pines golf course at sunset. I thought this photo was perfect - I was going to look for something that depicted "swamped" or "rat race" but really, in keeping with my NO Whining & NO Gasbags motto for 2013, I must say that while I will need to maintain a...
