In the Flash

"Life is fleeting. And if you're ever distressed, cast your eyes to the Summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day ... Make a wish and think of me."  -Robin Williams

Dress for Success

"What career matches your set of skills?"

One of the ways to get ahead in your career, they say, is to "Dress for the job you want, not the job you have," and friends, I think I've found where my dream wardrobe marries my dream job flawlessly.

In the 15th - 19th centuries, many wealthy people hired "garden hermits," who were real-life garden 'gnomes.'  They would dress like druids, live in a small shack in the garden, and offer wise counsel and guest entertainment.

2023 Reading List

Whew, this year has been a whirlwind of absurdity, and still, I've somehow managed to stay connected with actual time.  

Huh?  What is she on about this time??

So, I do this thing (it started in the last ten years or so) where my head-time, or the time of year it feels like to me doesn't match with chronological time, or the page on the calendar.  Like ... We'll all be in October, doing October-y things, but my head will still be back in April, or somewhere.  This year however, for the first time in a very long time, my head and calendar seem to be on the same page.  I'll admit, May is getting a bit away from me, I mean here we are with June just around the corner, and I'm feeling a little April-y about it all, but I think I can sync up in the next few days, and put things right again.

Viva la Revolución

With the close of 2022 came the Pantone "forecast" announcement of the new Color of the Year for 2023.  Now ... If you're new around here, you may not be familiar with my Pantone gripe.  The good news is, you can read more about it over here.  The, uhm, other news is that you will very quickly discover how wordy I am.  I'd apologize, but honestly?  I clearly needed to get all of that off my chest, like, it can't be healthy to hold that much animosity for the color equivalent of groundhog's day -- A harmless holiday(?) that means nothing, but also kind of something..?
