BECOMING POLISHED

Ram Dass said, “If you think you are enlightened, spend a week with your family.” I saw this just after being with my family for a week in Texas and I laughed out loud haha! Specifically, I think I could have been more patient. I have the kindest, most generous and loving mother in the - Read More -

VISION

In  2012, I took some time away from work. I’d worked continuously in engineering and business roles since 2001 and had never taken a break to consider what I really wanted to be doing. I considered my next steps based on the trajectory of my previous steps. But I felt myself being pulled into a - Read More -

In the midst of transition, my engineering side comes out.

THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL

As we wake up to the reality that Donald Trump is the next President of the United States, many of us are in shock. This reality seemed an outside possibility, at best. We hoped that moral decency would win out to racism, sexism, and xenophobia. We hoped that love would win over fear. But the - Read More -

THE TRUTH

As I hike through the Valley of Paul today, I keep thinking of truth. Of how some people go through extraordinary measures to avoid telling the truth and end up causing far more damage than if they would have told the truth in the first place. Of how we lie to ourselves. How we avoid - Read More -

LIFE IS A JOURNEY

While reflecting on a couple of lovely days spent traveling around my beautiful island of Santo Antao, I’m inspired to think about the journey of life. The featured photo was taken from the crater of a volcano here. How does someone come to live in the crater of a volcano? How do all of the decisions - Read More -
