Isn’t it wonderful what can be accomplished when no one cares who gets the credit. (Don James)

CAPES [something empowering] If you’re not ready to physically throw someone under a bus, than you have no business talking about them behind their back. This is a lesson I need to learn and re-learn every day.

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] Using cheap conditioner instead of shaving cream saves you money…plus I think it works better.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] I’ve already started dreaming about husky football games. And yes, in my dreams, we win every game. Here’s hoping that the glory years of the Don James era returns in 2011.

Be yourself. Everyone else is taken. (Oscar Wilde)

CAPES [something empowering] It turns out that patience is worth it (big surprise here, as a patience-hater). This may not hold true in all circumstances, but sometimes it really does pay to wait.

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] This song and the animation blob makes me smile.

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] My brother taught my nephew a new word: “peaches”…but through his 2-year old mouth it sounds like another word…

Tangawizi!

Written by , Posted in relationships, travel

CAPES [something empowering] You can’t plan surprises. And surprises are so much better than the best of plans.

COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] Swahili is fun to learn…twiga = giraffe…simba = lion…and my personal favorite – tangawizi = ginger. Now you know! Asante sana (thank you very much).

THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] I recently met a 110-year old grandmother who, in her younger years, hunted elephants with a bow and arrow in the African forests of Kenya. She’s a rockstar.
