Have a great design-day all,

Hike for Roger: ALS Research Funding

My friend Steve has a friend called Roger. And Steve is hiking the Appalachian Trail right now, to fund raise for ALS research, in support of Roger. This is a story worth following. If you are moved to share, please do; if you are moved to donate, please do. And as Steve says, “Amplify Your Life!”

Stay tuned for updates!

Women of the World

I thought the idea of a women’s strike today – International Women’s Day – was silly. Then I got the flu, and had to take the day off. Not participating in the larger economy or in the running of my household. Taking a rest day for myself. Nurturing me. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than that.

I leave you (as I go back to my sofa and tea) with this snippet of a song by CeeLo Green, “Women of the World (Go on Strike!).” Click play on the link below to listen. And watch the movie it’s from, Begin Again – it’s excellent.

May we all – women, men, and those in between – take the time to nurture our own selves.

Be well!
