I had the idea for a blog months ago. I had just completed a wonderful writing project where I shared my thoughts weekly with a group of folks and got some great feedback. I had said then I would get this blog going and did not. Now I am set but after watching Julie & Julia have put tremendous pressure on myself. I loved the movie and no way can my little blog compete with Julie. Still I am committed to get started!
What you need to know about my style of writing is that sometimes I am short and to the point and other times I ramble. I will do my best to keep it simple but I’m going to be learning along the way.
Second thing you need to know is that I am doing this in hopes that I will hear from you. I write because it gets me thinking and I like it when folks read and share the impact my words have in their world. I encourage you to agree, disagree – just let me know when I have made an impact. I anticipate that impact being both positive and negative and highly value both.
The third thing you need to know is that I am dyslexic and messy. I don’t always have someone to edit my work so it might be misspelled, missing words – but hopefully you can get the gist as you read.
Last comment – though I work with Executives, teams and corporations, my passion is people. I was a therapist but did not really fit in that world. Coaching is a better fit but still not quite right. Bottom-line I got my health back through becoming curious about life – all aspects of life and my relationship to the world around me. These days I know keeping that curiosity engaged and active is a critical key to my aliveness – so I work to stay curious about pretty much everything and everyone.
So the pressure is on! And I am up for the challenge – let the Blog begin!!!

Congrats on your new blogging life!
I am so excited that I will be able to come here and visit you often. I realize now I have a method to get a wee Susan-fix! Yippee!
Susan – I have been wanting to watch you blog for years. So give us typos, give us disorganized thoughts JUST give it to us!
Hello dear Susan,
I am full of joy thinking of you singing your own song, dancing your own dance – sharing your soul with us. I too loved Julie and Julia – what gifts each of us bring. One of the things I loved about your initial writing project was that you shared you in all your ways – I feel great warmth with what you describe as your dyslexic and messy ways – I am warmly hugging you as I write this. Celebrating you and your willingness to share.
you are a very bright light in this tunnel of life, thanks
Ah!! the pressaaa to blog or not to blog,that is the question. I think it is a noble endeavour, that for me, catches little tidbits of personal insights in the cobwebs of my mind that i can then share with others.
And it is a ton of fun too.
hi, susan – I am just sitting down to the treat and pleasure of reading you… This was a delightful start. Thank you so much for sharing yourself this way. I experience your sharing like water drops for a growing plant.
