Every year as the holidays approach, my heart longs for meaning, connection and peace. Unfortunately, the holidays are usually a series of chores, hurriedly getting done in between deadlines and commitments. With my task-driven head, overruling my heart, the holidays never live up to the expectation of It’s a Wonderful Life.

Hissy Fit - November 2016

Well, it seems I’m not the only one who can pitch a good hissy fit. Hurricane Matthew threw a hissy fit we will not soon forget. While each of us would like to pummel him back and give him a piece of our minds, we know it’s impossible to win against Mother Nature.

It was cheap—like $13 cheap, but it looked OK.

I’m an idea person. What that means is new things pop in my head all the time, especially while driving or in the shower. The four dreaded words my employees hate to hear come out of my mouth are, “I have an idea.” They know that means I will roll my idea out like a plush, crimson carpet awaiting George Clooney, get all excited, tell them why I believe it can be done and basically leave them to make it happen. I am not a good coordinator; I find it overwhelming.
