Pep talks can irk a few. The pushing of hope may lead some to bury negativity until it bubbles up. Bubbly, smiley nods somewhat dismissing the challenges of the moment. I was going to say I hate pep talks. But, assuredly, there is a time and place for […]
I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine! A social marketing expert and psychologist by training who works in the public health field trying to bring a little common sense to it all.
All the world is my television and I like to provide commentary on it.
Oh, the good old days. The days I ran through the fire hydrant’s splashing waters with great abandon. The days I put banana slices in my Frosted Flakes. The days where I could love both Duran Duran and Guns N Roses. The days in which I wrote long […]

All day I thought of my to-do list which is a mile long. Well, let me rephrase. Occasionally, throughout the day, I thought I should get some checkmarks onto my yellow pad of itemized to-do items. I thought about. Then sent about ten emails. Then I did one […]
