Well, I'd written a goal to write a blog post twice a week, but that seems to have fallen by the way side. Not for lack of thinking, however! One thing I've been reading and thinking about is the issue of diversity and racism and especially within on-line platforms. I've mentioned before that I use … Continue reading Making in 2019
Happy New Year
I really am trying something new this year. I've never had resolutions, or even done yearly goals. Two days ago I attended a vision mapping webinar, and spent a few hours working on my 2019 vision map. Today I worked some more on it, and took pen to my brand new planner and just started … Continue reading Happy New Year
Planning for 2019

Commenters posed a number of reasons ranging from stepping away from intrusive social media sites that dictate what you see or limit what you can say to a desire to just start writing again.

I have never been one to plan my knits out, but thought it sounded like a nice change for me. I sat down and realized with a … Continue reading Nine in 2018 and A Year of Making
My morning commute has altered quite a bit this year, with the addition of a passenger. While I love the company, I do find myself with less time for podcast listening, so my subscription list has shrunk quite a bit over the past few months. However, I am open to new ones, especially when they … Continue reading Pondering
It's been a rainy week, and therefore no good photo opportunities, I've decided to resurrect a post I started on a plane a few months ago. I've never been a big reader of non-fiction. Rather ironic considering I was a history major. Perhaps it's because these the non-fiction that's usually recommended to me is business … Continue reading Learning/improving
