“God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.” – Saint Augustine

“People are unrealistic, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway.” – Mother Teresa

“Creating a Healthy Environment for Empowering Women”

The Ouroboros is an ancient symbol of a snake eating its own tail. And as I sat through several sessions and side events at the UN today for CSW, the image of the Ouroboros kept popping into my head. Many of the issues and discussions brought up today were essentially in conflict with each other. […]

The New Tribes

In the not-so-distant past, if you had told people that one day you could have the wealth of the world’s information in the palm of your hand, they would have laughed in your face. But nowadays technology like smartphones, social media and services designed to stream information directly to you are commonplace. So commonplace that […]

New Year, Same Me

New Years has always been a weird time for me. I don’t think I’ve ever quite wrapped my head around the whole concept. I don’t understand that even though we have a holiday that is explicitly centered around new beginnings, it’s implicitly centered around the futility of change.   Let me explain:   Every year […]

How to Survive Thanksgiving

October is almost over and Thanksgiving is almost here: a holiday filled with food, fun, and fights. While I do enjoy a good argument, it is important to me (and should be important to everyone) that my family holidays aren’t ruined. It would be a perfect world if everyone could discuss ideas without being personally […]
