moving slowly

“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” ― Confucius I’ve been moving slowly for a very long time. But, I’ve been moving. The clock dawdles, or so it seems, when you’re waiting for change. If you’re watching and waiting, it may be times are hard and you’re looking for a better situation. Something that makes you … Read More moving slowly

Learning the Way — and the Other Way

Today a co-worker said, “there is always a solution to a problem. You just have to find it.” We went on to joke that the solution might be passive-aggressive behavior or staging a strike, but I took his point to heart. In all honesty, there likely are times we reach a dead end. But in those cases, the solution may be to start over. … Read More Learning the Way — and the Other Way

moving forward

Earlier this week I alluded to the “rabbit’s hole” I speak of in this post.  In honor of a new era,  I’m reposting this piece, a favorite of mine: A few weeks ago I found myself sitting alone in a crowd, anxiously searching for a familiar face. I was expecting a friend — until her text  told me not to. Now I was faced … Read More moving forward

There was a time when, with a carload of friends, I, as the driver, was caught in a stop-and-go situation in a parking ramp after a basketball game. “Look!” my friend Kathy said, pointing at another car. “They’re going the opposite direction! Let’s do that!” We should have, and I had a split second to decide. There was no law, no rule really, against … Read More Rules, Respect, and Giving a Rip

Consistently Changing

“Consistency requires you to be as ignorant today as you were a year ago.” ― Bernard Berenson Hmmm. I get his point, but there’s value in consistency, too. Depends on your consistent pattern. Do you routinely come home, watch the same TV shows and eat one of the same three frozen dinners? Or are you someone who can be counted to stay up-to-date with current … Read More Consistently Changing

Three Years Stronger

Annually, I re-post my very first blog post. Written on Christmas day 2014, it reflects the pain I was feeling then, as well as my resolve and hope. The latter, thankfully, still remains, but the loneliness and pain have left me. I’ve grown and changed since that day, and while the truth of what I wrote still reflects a part of myself, I’m standing … Read More Three Years Stronger

Sum Greater than the Parts

When the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Explaining synergy gets a little convulated, but basically, it amounts to this: you take two parts and together, they create something that’s worth more than the combined value of the two parts. Two plus two equals five. I learned of a practical example of this the other day. A co-worker was telling me … Read More Sum Greater than the Parts
