You don’t have to always be your best.  You just have to show up and be there. 

If your friends, colleagues, partners, spouses, girlfriends, boyfriends see you at your worse and still respect you as an equal then they will be your BFF.  

A friend may be here for a season, without rhythm or reason, or for a lifetime but they came into our world and for that we can be eternally grateful.

“Forever young, forever faithful, forever you.  Closer to my heart.” 


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.
