Today’s Jam: You Are Not Alone…… Honest

Sometimes, a song catches you so off guard that your visceral reaction to it makes you catch your breath as it’s ripped from your lungs. This was one of those songs. I know I’m not alone out here, but sometimes it feels that way. (As I was writing this, another song just blew through me…

nuestra vida juntos, creo en ti.

I hope you can hear me. I’m still here.

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…
