The Reckoning, the Rumble, the Revolution: Brené Brown’s <em>Rising Strong</em>

Our job is not to deny the story, but to defy the ending–to rise strong, recognize our story, and rumble with the truth until we get to a place where we think, Yes. This is what happened. This is my truth. And I will choose how the story ends. Brené Brown, Rising Strong “No one could […]

“Follow the good work”: Aidan Turner on Poldark, Acting, and Happiness

I have to say, PBS has a way of bringing us some handsome and talented Irishmen. My proof? A few years back, it was Northern Ireland’s fabulous singer and actor Damian McGinty, whom I love (and whose mailing list you should join, so you don’t miss out on future news of his tours and CDs, I’m […]

Your Personal Space Journey: Blue Origin Advancing Ever Closer to Commercial Space Flight

When New Horizons zipped by Pluto the other day, I read a comment somewhere that the oldest living person on Earth had been born before Orville and Wilbur Wright completed their first flight … and now we’ve sent a spacecraft to the most distant planet in our solar system, and beyond.

Masterpiece Theatre has done it again — literally.

Q&A with the Mayor of Akureyri, Iceland, One of Lonely Planet’s “Best Places in Europe 2015”

Also published at my Huffington Post blog. In 2013, I visited the town of Akureyri in Iceland’s far north, and had the honor of chatting with the town’s Mayor Eiríkur Björn Björgvinsson for the travelogue I was writing at the time. When I saw that Lonely Planet recently named Akureyri as one of its “Best […]

How to Run an Effective, Efficient Meeting Without Wasting Everyone’s Time

Also published at my Huffington Post blog. I forget how much I hate meetings until I have to go to one, like I did yesterday. And let me tell you, I have some serious meeting-related peeves. I’ll bet I’m not alone. This is not to say I’m totally opposed to meetings. I know they have […]
