Everything is totally under control (not)

We’re closing in on nearly three months since my last blog post. Three months during which life zoomed along, barely under any kind of control. (Seriously, I even had dreams about trying to maneuver an out-of-control car: one night, it was rocketing down a winding ramp from the upper floor of a parking tower, with... Continue Reading →

Suddenly, last summer

I know summer is not over, yet. Technically, we're barely halfway through. But so much of it has zipped past me, and so many Fall things are looming, that I feel like I've already missed it! Last year's work and school "shut-down" - challenging in so many unpleasant ways - at least created more opportunities... Continue Reading →

A random act of blogging

Too many extra-curricular activities (some required for my career shift), and too much overtime at work... Continue Reading →

“Everyone starts somewhere…”

I was about to break a streak of posting at least once every month, even though I have stuff to report!

Keep the body in motion

First up, a few role models: I'm a few years (ok, 5 years) behind the times, but Bollywood actor and ageless eye candy Milind Soman treated himself to an Ironman* Triathlon for his 50th birthday in 2015 (*that's an event featuring a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and 26.22 mile run). He apparently... Continue Reading →
