A personal space for sense making


Thank you to my family and friends that are family for your support.  I would not be who I am without you.

Thank you to my community for holding me up when I fall down.

Thank you to my social network for challenging my beliefs and expanding my world view.

Thank you to my colleagues and my organization for giving me the space to explore.

Thank you to the universe for this amazing place I call home.

Happy Thanksgiving!
