As we prepare to enter the Turkey-Day-fray, I’m remembering my kiddo’s first official Thanksgiving.  Since my mother set the feast-bar pretty high in my family, prepping for a holiday meal is a lot like preparing for the Pope, or Brad Pitt, or Oprah, or whoever-else you might have picked when you played the game “If […]

One of the things I love most about my work is that I get a chance to help people see and appreciate their natural talents.   When we’re too close to something, sometimes it’s hard to see (and that’s getting less metaphorical and more literal for me the older I get).  We don’t see the things […]
