A few notes before leaving to see my mom for a few days —
For most of my life, I have been seen as an extrovert, by myself and by others. A big “E” on the Myers-Briggs. A Sanguine on the personality types. Comfortable on stage, anxious to be in front, wanting to lead, with a strong need for attention and, I hoped, approval. Loud, boisterous, story-telling, carried away, life of the party, annoying, raucous, fun, never met a stranger — I answer to all of them, and have, pretty much all my life.
But that’s changing.
Do you ever wonder what country, and what century, certain corporations are living in?
I eat at Panera fairly frequently. (Less now that I’m trying to cut back on bread. Duh.) I like their food, I like the classical music in the background, I like the atmosphere, and I like the free wifi.
Last week, I discovered what I didn’t like.

The differences are obvious: the tip jars in St. Matthews, Shelbyville Road, and Lyndon are all in Tip Sahara Dessert, while the ones in the Highlands are lush and flush.
It’s interesting — since I moved to Squarespace, I know there are people reading this blog, because I can check the stats each day through SS itself. It’s not a lot of people, but it’s steady. What I don’t understand is the lack of comments. Either people are just skimming and moving on, or my […]
Have you ever had a friendship come to an end, and no matter what you do, you can’t find out why? I have, and it’s frustrating.
Random thoughts driving back from my mom’s in Knoxville …
I got an iPhone for Christmas, and the ubiquity of the internet access has begun changing my way of working. I am moving more and more stuff to the “cloud.” I find that the centralized data storage and the access-anywhere-from-anything benefit outweighs the worries about sensitive data. (To a point; more on that in a moment.)
