The deal: do you abuse privilege or credentials?

Everybody likes a deal. Who doesn’t? In fact, we love to tell our friends and neighbors our “deal stories.” You know what I mean? “You’re not going to believe what happened to us! We got a discount to the concert and saved sooooo much money!!” In fact, we will play “top my story” when we…

Old school parenting

I heard someone say that libraries are going away. People just don’t read paper books anymore. Bookstores themselves don’t have the foot traffic they once had. There are a few exceptions, but those exceptions usually have a Starbucks in the lobby. Seems there’s no time to sit and read when there are so many other…

Modeling understanding

People watching. It’s a national pastime. I was hanging out in Atlanta’s airport, killing the four hour delay I was experiencing. I’ve learned to deal with it. It’s a part of traveling and people watching fills the gap. Now it’s interesting to see the variety of people for sure, but what really captivates me is…

Walls and boundaries

I’m not sure what to do with the idea that a title and beginning to a blog post is one of my biggest struggles right now. Of all the things I have to write about, I’m a little confused why the beginning of this post held me in check for 10 minutes. So much has…

Love and the white noise of life

I was asked to describe the white noise I mentioned in the first post. I’m not sure how to make sense of that to anyone that’s not in the middle of it. I’m open to trying, just don’t judge too harshly. 🙂 I suppose that fear of judgment is another post I should write soon. The…

Discovering why we need people

Here it is. The first post of the ramblings of a crazy loon. 🙂 To be honest, I’m a little weirded out by the idea that there’s anyone interested in reading my thoughts or opinions. I’m not trying to elicit any sympathy here. I honestly don’t know why anyone would be interested. I’m a student…
