I am on my way to Atlanta, Georgia¬†as a replacement delegate ūüôā

Bear with me as I leave my comfort zone! I’ll be sure to share pictures…I grew up in Atlanta, and after the summit I’m going to spend a little time nosing around my old ‘haunts’ – just a little time, as I do not have fond memories of the place or the time I spent there.

In the meantime, until I post again (soon, I hope), be sure to spend a little time nosing around the blogs I have¬†nominated for awards ūüôā

Thank You

Thank You, Redux



It’s been a lot of work, but the woods behind my home are almost no longer a jungle – the sunset is actually visible now through the trees.

Thank You, Redux

 Seven things about myself:

1. I am a night owl.

2. People think I live on coffee and chocolate, but I¬†really don’t.

3. My favorite quote most days is “I do not like to¬†write – I like to have written” (Gloria Steinem).

4. Other days I force myself to write by thinking of this:¬† “If there is no dull and determined effort, there will be no brilliant achievement” (Hsun-tzu).

5. I have learned that “The first step in blogging is not writing them but reading them” (Jeff Jarvis).

6. I really like quotes.

7. I believe ‚ÄúThe greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach¬†it.‚ÄĚ ( Michelangelo Buonarroti).
