the days now flit and fly around and through my nexus like hummingbirds on hibiscus. i rock and i roll with the onset of putting out fires and answering questions, calming fears, counseling colleagues, creating collaboration.  i am learning so much about what i thought i had forgotten. i still have some communication skills. thank heaven for that.

a living being’s sense of purpose and usefulness may very well be directly linked to well being. i cannot remember feeling so connected and calmly directed.

“There are people who are generic. They make generic responses and they expect generic answers. They live inside a box and they think people who don’t fit into their box are weird. But I’ll tell you what, generic people are the weird people. They are like genetically-manipulated plants growing inside a laboratory, like indistinguishable faces, like droids. Like ignorance.”
