You Matter To Me.

I often write of friendships. Those relationships I’ve built, curated, nurtured, celebrated, and loved (and lost) over the many years of my life are all a part of who I am today. Who I’ve become, how I’ve grown, and how I view the world. But, the truth is, I wouldn’t be who I am in…

The darkness and the light

Where I also say thank you to a special unnamed friend – you provided me so much strength when I didn’t have my own.

Turning towards the sun

It’s been a long, long, long time since I’ve been around here. You may have noticed. Maybe you haven’t. Maybe you just thought I dropped off the face of the earth. Maybe I did. There’s been so much change, both internally and externally, that I’ve experienced in the last — oh, 2 years or so,…

Cave Dwelling

I heard yesterday (Saturday) was going to be really hot, so I thought it would be cool (pun intended) to hide inside the earth for a bit. Near Mt. St. Helens, Washington, there’s this part of the park called Ape Caves, which is a former lava tube. (Used under creative commons, thanks iwona_kellie! As we…

You Want Me To Do What?

A friend of mine was asked some strange things in an interview. Well, I think they’re strange and some people think they’re perfectly normal. So, I went to go get a different perspective. Thanks to my love of LinkedIn, I’ve found some great HR/Career communities in there and I’ve been commenting and reading a lot…

Top 11 Posts of 2011

Well, we’re almost to 2012 and recently I posted my top 11 photos of ’11, so I thought I would dig around in my stats and share with you the items that a plurality of you decided to visit over the year. They’re ranked by number of views. 11: (Dis)Engaging Google+ – I’ve written that…

On A Wing

I’m not a confident flyer.* I hold my breath as if it is going to help. I know the logic behind it, more likely to … car wreck etc… But, I can’t help it. There is something about flying that defies all logic. That the science of aerodynamics defies the laws of gravity. There are…

Crossroads. Help Me, Pathfinder!

I’m at a crossroad with my education. I am getting close to graduating with my Associates of Business Administration degree. (YAY!) However, I am also looking at what the future holds for me. (Used via Creative Commons, thank you dsmoljanovic!) I am a storyteller, not as in, “the fish was this big” stories, but more…

Feelin’ Fine…

Sometimes this is just how you feel. There’s a Simpsons Episode for every moment. Please enjoy.

Repudiate or Reputation?

Reputation is based solely on public perception. You can say how awesome you are, how smart you are, how fabulous you are or how magnificent you are, but if you are perceived as anything less; it’s all smoke and mirrors. I was privy to a discussion online recently where a person decided to rant about…
