I had a session with a spiritual advisor once, and almost immediately she told me my life’s ruling value is FREEDOM. As she said it my mind started flipping through memories of decisions I’d made – many of them of the spontaneous variety – based on my need to feel free. Her statement that day […]Continue Reading... 4 Comments.
I can hardly believe it. It’s the final countdown… Only two weeks until this chapter of my solo adventures abroad close and I begin the next chapter of my life’s journey. I am taking time to reflect on the things I love about my life here in Italy. There’s no reason I can’t bring a […]Continue Reading... Comments Off on The Lists: I Heart Italy vs. I Heart USA
I slid into the halfway mark of 2013 in style by finishing up my part of the European leg of Beyonce’s “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” working with a fantastic group of people. When I started the year that wasn’t even in my scope of possibilities. But, as a freelance marketing expert I open […]Continue Reading... 3 Comments.

Afterwards I enjoyed a caffe and was invited to listen to some live music on Friday night…I couldn’t make myself say […]Continue Reading... Comments Off on Delayed.

I really, really hate it. I feel like I’m on a job interview and everything I do is […]Continue Reading... 4 Comments.
I’m sitting in a bar as I write this post. A bar here is different from back home; it’s more of a cafe. It’s pronounced the same and there’s the same interesting characters hanging around, but this one’s got more going on and opens way earlier.
