SEQUENTIALLY, NOT SIMULTANEOUSLY
Saturday, February 20, 2010      15 comments

I've been thinking quite a bit about a recent FRACTALMYTH blog on focus, the necessity of deciding what to do and moving ahead etc. etc. This seems to me to be a perpetual problem for women in particular. We women are told, unceasingly, ... Read more

Friday, January 22, 2010      11 comments

Yup, love dogs too -- particularly my own golden retriever, Charlie, whose call name is "Heart of Gold". Prophetic, that was. Best dog ever. But I also love other people's dogs whether they have hearts of gold or not. And once in a whi... Read more
