Reminiscing 2020

Update 2020

It’s been a while since I shared a post. The last was the letter to the 2019-2020 University Activities Board (UAB) Team in lieu of our end of the year banquet.

36 Goals

WOW. I’ve inhabited this floating rock for 35 years now. More or less successful. I’ve had the highs I’ve had the lows. Year 35 has been a wild ride. From my professional life to my personal life and everything in between. I’ve gotten lost more than a couple of times during this 35th rotation but IContinue reading “36 Goals”

“I Am The Leader I’ve Been Waiting For”
