Just Dial It Down and Receive Up…

Sometimes the best thing we can do is just shut up and let others talk.  We may not agree with everything they say but we can learn to appreciate the diversity of opinion, worldview, and intellectual, social-cultural, or faith-based conversation starters around us. 

Only then by pro-active listening can we seek to understand and then wait our turn to be understood.  

Just Be Calm and Be There…

You may just be that calm center someone needs to embrace in their personal chaos of calamity.  In the howling wind we can be that silent voice calling them by name.  

When was the last time you truly listened to your own soul with intent through the embrace of another?

“Be Still and Know That I Am Love” 


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.
