While I read The Book of Delights by Ross Gay, it occurred to me that I don’t often use the word “delight.” It seems unfortunate, especially since I am delighted on a regular basis — a tight hug from my son, a smile and a hand squeeze from my husband, the flickering candlelight creating shadowsRead more of this blog post »

Now I can laugh about it. A couple of nights ago it seemed far less funny. First you have to understand my husband is addicted to his phone. It is an extension of his arm. If God gave you an option of having a hand or a phone he would choose a phone. He goes nowhere without it – and I mean absolutelRead more of this blog post »

Closing a sale can be viewed as something with a Machiavellian spin to it. There’s the stereotype of a salesman whose mindset is very fixed: “I'm going to close you. I’m going to get you to make a decision out of sheer will.” That is not a great way to approach sales.

Non so se sia teologicamente corretto, ma a me sembra che tra pregare e andare a messa ci sia la stessa differenza che c’è tra parlare al telefono con tuo marito e abbracciarlo e unirti a lui. Si può parlare con Dio, ma l’unione che ci permette la messa è il momentRead more of this blog post »
The shirt is priced at £55, which must be a record for a charity shop. Granted, it is a “label” and this is Tunbridge Wells. The shirt, even second hand, is clearly intended for a man of superior means. But what species of well-heeled dude seeks “labelled” threads in a charity shop? It seems a sRead more of this blog post »

So they tried to beat the spirit out of you
And at times it felt as if that’s all there was
To that life
Did it work? Did they win?
Where are they now?
Still living inside?

For the past week, my routines have been knocked thoroughly off-kilter, first by campus power outages that moved in-person classes online, then by a wedding and, finally, a sick day, courtesy of a broken tooth. Next week is fall break, promising more changes. Clearly some routine-busters (weddi Read more of this blog post »
Ganz tolle Rezension von Ulli Wagner vom saarländischen Rundfunk:

It’s really nice to see the famous Hi-Power design coming back. Arguably, depending on where you are in the world, it never really went away, but we haven’t seen much mainstream production and innovation until the last couple of years. A great design is a timeless design, and I, for one, welcome theRead more of this blog post »
I was in Denver last week for a design sprint and staying in an Embassy Suites. I checked in ahead of time via the Hilton Honors app and went straight to my room. When I first pulled up my digital key, I was instructed to stand close to the door. When I got close, the screen updated to say, “Tap toRead more of this blog post »
I was considering my family. The part I am, for somewhat obvious reasons, “estranged” from. While we have dramatically different views we aren’t hostile, we are at the least cordial. Hostility would never do in a proper southern family. We just don’t speak of our differences when we are forced to beRead more of this blog post »
