Hello, Frameshifters! Long time, no talk. Just a quickie post, as I haven't posted in so long, and I had a fascinating experience. I left my 9-to-5 job, I'm full-time working for myself, and my time has been FULL of adventures: creating an updated logo, developing my website, going to networking meetings, having 1-on-1s with… Continue reading Quickie post: “Breakthrough”
Hello, Frameshifters. I’m challenging myself to write more. Welcome to my first #postaday post! I perused a couple threads and fell on what I think is a fitting topic, an amalgam of entries for this new challenge: self-esteem.

There is a continuing debate that sounds incredibly grammatical, but is in fact credibly philosophical, and is… Continue reading Are You the Subject or the Object? (The difference is spirit.)
It has been a fascinating last 48 hours. Yesterday, I turned 38. Thirty-eight. Three decades plus eight years. Nearly forty. Four zero. Forty.
