I Really Do Love WordPress

Yes, it’s true that I think WordPress is just about the best thing since sliced bread. I can use its wonderful interface and NEVER have to write script and test it out. It’s all done before I even need it.

Hooray, for programmers and hooray for open source software.

Procrastination Strikes again!

I just posted this on my Pennicole Graphics Blog and thought it would serve nicely as a post to my personal blog. There the heading was different but the content was the same.

Scandals and Outrage

Been gone a long time. My visit to Oregon was delightful. The drive back across country was long but very inspiring. Did note that too few renewable resources are being used and too much fossil fuel is being consumed.

Looks like that won’t matter if the dire predictions about 2012 are true, though, will it? The last time we had this level of hysteria and fear mongering was with 2001 bombing attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.

What’s my role in this?

I’ve been reading a lot of books just recently. I read Seth Godin’s book, All Marketers Are Liars, and found it both entertaining and informative. Seth is irreverent, funny and delivers a good message. Fun read. I recommend Seth’s book highly.

If you are at all interested in what motivates you (or other people) and why we function (as a species) the way we do, this book will fill you in. It does have some science in it but Lipton has a way of explaining things so even those who flunked science can grasp and understand his very plausible concepts. Good read. Can barely put it down!

A Time to Remember – step 3

Today, I am contemplating the actions and consequences of those actions that occurred eight years ago.

I recall where I was and what I was doing but that seems to pale in comparison to what I was feeling. At first, I felt outrage and a horrendous sense of loss and despair. Then, I felt compassion and awe and inspiration as I watched the selfless acts of heroism and generosity flow from people all over this great nation of ours. The acts of kindness that poured in from across the globe touched me to my deepest places.

I am reminded of the basic goodness of humans inspite of the choices of a very few. I am reminded of the healing that comes from a simple act of forgiveness. Forgiveness – the one thing that can turn tragedy into growth, unity and healing. Forgiveness – the balm for a wounded nation.

Today, I practice forgiveness…
