Later that evening, George is in April’s bedroom, leaning over her to kiss her goodnight.

“Are you staying with us tonight grandpa?” she asks.

“Kitten, I’ll be here until your mom and dad get back. After tonight, I think I can promise you that.”

The smile acros... Read more of this blog post »

Do We Forget to Ask?

Are you a student of philanthropy?  Or a student of fundraising?

There’s a difference.  Students of philanthropy discover WHY donors feel motivated to support a cause.  Students of fundraising learn HOW the invitation is extended to do that.

Either way, every so often we students need to do more than give it a pa...

Right partner. Nov. 12

I watch ABC's Dancing with the Stars and I love seeing the couples dancing! You can tell who has chemistry… anticipating their partner’s steps and adding to the partner’s strengths and complimenting their weaknesses.

It's not a good performance when there is no chemistry between the da... Read more of this blog post »

Happy Veteran’s Day

Happy Veteran’s Day!


I didn’t have the perfect picture to share, but I had this image from a year ago.



This was the Veteran’s Day run we participated in. I love the symbolism here of people running toward the finish. Of working hard, giving it their all, and then finishing together with people they may...

Second Day Peak Blog Data

A typical blog response pattern in my Medium posts.

This is a very common pattern with my blogs on Medium. Day 2 typically is the peak on a blog post, with a faster fall-off compared to the slope start.

I will add the data slope to this blog post below in 3 days ;)

The Times Higher Ed blog has this data point on LinkedIn today (out of 175 v...days ;)

What Happened to Dinnertime?

When I was a kid, smart phones and iPads didn't exist. I'm glad for their absence in my childhood because these devices are ruining one of the key foundations of families, dinnertime.

At dinnertime, we gathered together. It was mandatory, and it wasn't just a time to eat. It was a time... Read more of this blog post »

"Welcome to the Haunted House"
The Outcast Hours

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time.
