This weird clusterf**k anniversary

  April 22nd is a weird fucking day for me. First of all, it’s Earth Day. Not weird. Awesome, in fact. My favorite holiday.  I’ve written about it from a technology perspective, as well as from corporate “green team” and volunteer perspectives, Today I will plant bachelor’s buttons and sunflower seeds in the garden, something we’ll not get to enjoy…

my dualities, my life, my journey

I took my love, I took it down Climbed a mountain and I turned around And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills ‘Til the landslide brought it down Oh, mirror in the sky What is love?

Guest Post: Language (2015)

Hola blog readers! I’ve been discovering pieces that my husband wrote in years past that, since he is no longer a regular blogger, would be fun to share (I have his blessing, of course), so I thought I’d kick off with this passion piece where he discusses his love of words and language in general…enjoy! “There is plenty of evidence…

5 Things to Stop Doing – NOW!

A few months ago, I was mentioning to a hiring manager – a CLIENT – over the phone that I would be out of the office for several days because we were celebrating my husband’s 50th birthday. He then actually had the nerve to “joke” with me that my husband was “robbing the cradle”, and when I calmly mentioned that…
