I am curious.  Have any of you ever had anyone you know or are close to in any way be critical or offended about some thing or things that you wrote in your blog?

If this has happened in your life, I am really interested in hearing how you felt and how you responded to the person.

If this has not happened in your life, I am interested in what you think about this type of encounter.

Just to be clear, I am not talking about posting derogatory things about anyone.  If you are so moved to share your perspectives, I will read your experiences, and opinions with great interest.

I am doing fine - this has been an intense and rewarding week.  I will do my best to post a longer piece later today or this weekend.

A thought for a rainy Saturday

Freedom is actually a bigger game than power. Power is about what you can control. Freedom is about what you can unleash.

Yes, it is busy - I am doing my interim executive director gig in a family homeless shelter and it is just that crazy part of the transition that is so time consuming. Couple that with the other client work and the extreme COLD here and it is just enough for me to keep the laundry done and the cat fed :).

My friend V, who has been staying here since the beginning of October, moved into his condo this week - it has taken him about 2 months to get things prepared to his liking. He is nearby in a high rise in downtown St. Paul; we will see one another but now have our own space and quiet time. V had set his computer up in my home office/studio therefore, I have not really been able to use it for quite awhile. I am positively giddy with delight; I have spent the morning reorganizing the studio. I now am off to pilates and time with Suzy my amazing personal trainer. I can't wait to return home and work some more on this project.

It has warmed up here - finally - this morning it is 25 degrees (that is ABOVE zero) and it makes one think of wearing work-out capris to training (almost). Have a wonderful Saturday. Namaste.

Here's to an Amazing New Year

"The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins."
