A Response

I stumbled across a blog post on Facebook early this week that I’ve decided to respond to. Below is the post (in italics) with my response (in bolded orange): It has been said that in marriage, the pain and stress of divorce is greater than even the pain of losing a spouse to death.

Chul Ho Shin & Language

Something random happened last week that has been on my mind…and it doesn’t have anything to do with the 2016 Election! Last week during a training on pronouns we were asked to introduce ourselves with the name given to us at birth and what if any was the significance and meaning of those names.

#ATTI80: The Final Theory

WOW! Crazy to think that #ATTI80 is now over!!! Over the past 80 days I’ve broken down 8 theories, gone through 13 dry erase markers, 1 container of Clorox wipes, utilized 2 whiteboards and, to close us out, have created 1 theory.

I could be getting a head start on some financial stuff for work, but I came in early this morning to blog.

Bonjour de montréal! Hello from Montreal! Its been another whirlwind convention, and on this final day, I’ve gone for my morning walk to the Bagel Express to get my coffee and croissant and found a colorful corner to reflect for a few moments.
