Sometimes it’s what we don’t say that means the most.  Past hurts, pain, mistakes, failures, missed chances, and unforgiveness can be covered up with lots of fluffy frosting and fancy decoration however that sweetness only gives a brief ‘sugar high.’ 

We are like that birthday cake, celebrating our good times and our good feelings but hiding the real substance, the real ingredients underneath the colorful frosting and many lit candles as we make a wish for a better life as we blow them out, but we are left with the smoke as we fade into the darkness once again. 


As a proud graduate of California State University, Chico with an earned BA degree in International Relations, Master of Arts degree in Public Policy, and a past study abroad participant at the University of Tuebingen, education has always been up front and center in both our family and my professional career. My blogging project is an eclectic work in progress and intended to increase global awareness through selections and stories of my studies and travels. As future global citizens we can seek first to understand one another through word pictures and engage our collective creative intellects to change our community; one blog at a time.
