Happy New Year

The New Year always promises to be a special time for me; I love beginnings.  Being a start-up kind of person, I’m charged by the creative process whirling around before the real work begins.   Clean slates and fresh starts offer time for dreaming, visioning and setting the course for navigating through our next segment of […]

I have a lovely scale in my bathroom and am amazed that when I step on it and loose even ½ lb, I’m elated. However, when I gain or even stay the same on that weight measure for longer than I think I should, I’m sunk, sometimes for the whole day. Why don’t I lose […]
