meandering through May


9,647th blog “redesign” in the last six months. None intentional, but I think comments finally fully not broken. Whee! It was driving me bonkers not to be able to tell at a glance if I’d answered a comment. Another week of Quarantime. I think it’s nine weeks, but I’ve completely lost track. Another week where […]

Is this over yet?


Not a serious question. We all know it’s a long way from over, but I’m really beginning to feel this acutely. This was A WEEK.  And it seemed universally so. I was on a working group call early Friday afternoon that’s usually chatty and the chair noticed we were all quiet. I volunteered that it […]

Finding Forward


This week was all over the place. I’m healthy and safe, as are my family and friends, so that’s where I’m going to leave the CV19 talk. I hope the same is true for you and your loved ones. I think many of us learned in the last few weeks that connections are even more […]

We didn’t need dialogue. We had faces!


Edit: this post was half written, and then we lost a dear colleague to COVID19 and I deleted a lot as it became irrelevant. Pardon the random collection of what’s left. I’m OK, just sad. He was an amazing man. Here are some photos another colleague shared.  We don’t know when we’ll be back in […]

Food, medicine and exercise

I’m oh so grateful I found running three years ago so I have an outlet. As Jen & Lin-Manuel said it best: […]

What a week


like all of us, Coronavirus dominated my world. Not to say it’s anything like Hiroshima, but the blossoms there always reminded me of resiliency, and them blooming here this week gives me hope. Lots to say, but nothing to add to the conversation beyond: Stay safe everyone. And for those of you newly working from […]
