    • Changing Landscapes

        As I write this, I am gazing at the view over my new balcony. Masts of sailboats bob on sparkling blue water and behind them the treeline of the forests of Newcastle Island spikes the sky. Turning to look the other way, into the living space of this high-ceilinged seaside penthouse apartment and out the sweeping windows that frame it, I have a close-up view of two tall and abundant ponderosa pines. In their branches, birds flit and chitter. A seagull calls out over the boats on the sea. I feel lucky. My husband and I decided to move last summer, when a series

      The Heft of a Good Book

      The Heft of a Good Book My husband and I are downsizing and we’re spending the early days of summer sorting and sifting through two decades of household goods. We’re both writers and we have a vast collection of books. We’ve slowed down on new book purchases as we navigate this transition, and I have become extremely grateful for the Kindle app, allowing me to continue to

      Everyday Happiness

      I believe happy idleness is a pathway to a purposeful life. In North America, particularly, we have come to reject idleness, and yet it is in the pauses between our seemingly urgent tasks and activities that we find our deepest contentment. The everyday happiness philosophy suggests that it is life’s ordinary moments, small victories, and day-to-day joys that provide an infinite source of

      Yellow is for Hello

Marking a decade as a leader in the digital and social media space made this particular year uniquely special. It was a reflective conference, with speakers and attendees looking back over a “decade of disruption,” as

      A Billion Dead on Facebook

Do you get more or less comfortable with the idea when you consider that what you post today can potentially last well beyond your natural lifespan and into the future forming a kind of digital archeology? Here’s a staggering thought: 100 years from now there will be a billion dead people on Facebook. You may

      Cooperation and Partnership

      Writing a book is hard work, requiring strong research, organization, and composition skills. Co-authoring a book is hard work halved, but requires the additional skills of cooperation and partnership. My recently released book, Digital Legacy Plan, A Guide to the Personal and Practical Elements of Your Digital Life Before You Die, was released by Self-Counsel Press in March and co-authored
