Work put me in the Bay Area last week where I had the pleasure of connecting with someone who contributed a piece to the recent issue of the magazine. These digital acquaintences—I like to joke that all my friends are only 150 x 150 pixels big—make up the large part of my daily contact with […]

…a little. Thank goodness I’m not one of those highly organized, incredibly inspired, prolific bloggers with a tight agenda for every day of the week/month/year. You know the type: if-it’s-Wednesday-it-must-be-wordless, or wooden, or whatever! Actually – I would love, love, love to be one of those bloggers. But I’ve come to realize it’s probably just […]
