The delightful Gilda Radner once said:
I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next.
I revisit the sentiment in this quotation often because it is such a fitting theme for my life…and fittingly, for this blog. I love those moments when life experiences come crashing together, and it is because of those moments that this blog was formed. I needed a place to funnel the inspiration and fireworks from those spontaneous life experience mash-ups. Some of these moments come from travel, many from the intersection of health and technology, and still others from cancer survivorship, culinary adventures, sailing, and a whole host of other topics. I am a public health communications specialist by trade; a behavioral economist in training; a childhood cancer survivor; an un-closeted tech geek; a sailor, swimmer, and culinary enthusiast; and in my spare time, a wanderer and a ponderer. This is where I put the pieces together, but if you’re interested in somewhat more coherent thoughts, find me on:
