Hello and welcome to the website.
Think of this as the home base of what is considered a "multi-hyphen" work life. You will notice that the categories are in ABC order, simply because one is not more urgent than the other. Of course like all of us, different categories take up more time, space or priority at any given time. The other thing that you might have noticed is that this is all work driven detail, and information, not personal or family. I try very hard to keep my private life, private. That said, I think we all like to know a little more about the person behind the work, and so I do add in little personal bits and details here and there. They are in the places that they naturally land.
I have finally successfully combined my work into a single path forward, and that feels great. It's funny that it took a few decades (and a week in reflection, in a motel room, because my plumbing was under repair) to really see that golden thread that has run through everything. One of the problems with either being able to do many things, or having to be the only person doing many things, is you lose the ability to really know what it is you want, or your passion. After all when you spend a lifetime, adapting, going along, making it work, pushing through - you lose that quiet inner you along the way.
Anyway I have had enough birthdays that I have decided to dedicate the rest of my life to working on what I love, and with the people I love. It's a deep comfort of knowing that I can combine my skills, joys, experience, education, contacts ... my life into a very direct path, that makes a difference, and is in service, leaving both guideposts and a hand up to others.
And here is the thing, that means I am not going to be everyone's best cup of tea, and I am okay with that. Just as you should be, in your own life! Part of living an authentic life, and not settling or shifting, but instead living your unique rhythm is how you find your inner path and peace.
So I invite you, look around - and see what you think. If you resonate with me, and my work, please sign up for the newsletter, and stay up to date with what is happening. And participate in the places that fit well for you. Maybe you have a child that is a perfect fit for the pre-k, or maybe want to purchase a book, or just stay in touch and learn more about literacy, and fitness. I also am a firm believer in giving back, and that means you will also see places you can learn more about organizations I believe in, and how you can help them to do the work they believe in.
Maybe, just maybe you will even find the inspiration to live your own unique path, and dance your own dance.
May you be safe and happy, healthy and wealthy, and live a life of grace and ease.
