New Years Resolutions 2020

By |2020-01-03T17:40:14+13:00January 1st, 2020|Excellence|

For 2020, my word is Relax. My work ethic has really messed me up. I've been using the stress response to catapult me into high levels of productivity, and the fight-or-flight mode formally known as the sympathetic nervous system has been my fuel for working hours. By relying on the sympathetic nervous system, and artificially [...]

Annual Review 2019

By |2020-01-02T15:50:53+13:00December 31st, 2019|Introspection|

2019 was a crap year, and I'm glad to see the end of it. There were some great big victories in my business, and I'm proud of what I accomplished; but there were a lot of challenges with my health, teaching me lessons I wasn't quite ready to learn. Annual Review Table of Contents [...]

Befriending My Illness

By |2020-02-03T11:28:04+13:00November 13th, 2019|Introspection, Roundups|

I was completely unable to work. My fatigue had been keeping me from concentrating all morning, and the symptoms of my illness - bloody, uncomfortable, and draining - had been steadily increasing over the past two weeks. I gave up trying to function, and went into the backyard to sit with a cup of tea [...]

September Springtime

By |2020-02-03T11:27:53+13:00October 9th, 2019|Family, Roundups|

I'm still disoriented by the seasons in the Southern Hemisphere. September is the start of Spring in New Zealand, and after the long winter, I'm enjoying the warmer days and brighter skies. We Sprang Forward at the beginning of the month, while my North American friends will Fall Back 4 weeks later. So our time [...]

A month of catching up

By |2019-09-07T10:38:41+12:00September 6th, 2019|Adventure, Family, New Zealand, Roundups|

The month started with a cancelled flight. I was in Denver, across the world from my family, at the NSA #Influence19 conference. The trip went great, I made a lot of top-notch connections, and stayed over an extra day after the conference ended to catch up on client work. When it was time for me [...]

From Winter to Summer and Back Again

By |2019-08-13T17:27:59+12:00August 6th, 2019|Adventure, Roundups|

Directly after I wrote about the Darkest Days of the Year, my experience of this year's winter in the Southern Hemisphere, I spent two weeks working from bed with a winter flu. Then, as soon as I recovered, I flew to the Northern Hemisphere for a week of summertime. I didn't know I was going [...]

Darkest Days of the Year

By |2019-07-08T16:13:35+12:00July 7th, 2019|Family, Roundups|

June was an exciting month. We experimented with celebrating American Father's Day in New Zealand. The timing worked great, with Johanna's dad visiting us this month. Her mom visited last month for Mother's Day, and we got her dad here for Father's Day, too. In New Zealand, Father's Day is in September. We played with [...]

Movements in May

Indi turned 13, and it was wonderful. Thirteen years ago, my daughter was born. At the precise moment of the anniversary of her birth, it also happened to be the precise moment of the New Moon. This magical woman stood at the center of a sacred circle, as she left childhood behind. Maiden, Mother, and [...]

6 Highlights from April

1. Easter egg hunts Since we are in the Southern Hemisphere, the Spring celebration of Ostara falls in the Fall. It's odd, having the traditional spring easter-egg-hunt while the weather is turning colder, but it was till fun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDU_Qt6dN5E We plan on celebrating half-holidays, so we will celebrate Easter 2 2019 in the springtime.
