About This Blog

In the grand scheme of things, there are people who have road maps to their lives and there are others, like myself, who need a little help from a GPS system.  Join me as I try to figure out my next “career”, maintain the 10+ year relationship with my fantastic partner and try not to embarrass my parents, who still wonder when I am going to put my three Stanford degrees to use.

It’s my life, soup to nuts……plus some really cool design projects thrown in for good measure.

I love talking with people, so feel free to contact me at lifeoutloudmail@gmail.com

  4. The day you began to live life out loud is the day I came into the world! Too many years ago I had my astrology chart done. I was told that if I did not begin the journey immediately at age 18 I would need to wait for the next cycle to occur in my 50’s. So here it is and now I begin again! Thank you for your comment on the garden, it is my inspiration!

  5. OK…as an older person who is also a Mom of a young man I am going to jump on your parents’ bandwagon and ask why you haven’t put those 3 Stanford degrees to use, too!!! 🙂 Not to worry…I understand. Although I didn’t earn my degree at Stanford (that’s degree with NO “s” on the end!!!), it took me forever to find my true niche, too. Take your time and find what you truly love….even if it has absolutely nothing to do with the disciplines in which you earned your degrees. Congratulations on the 10+ years with your partner! That takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and biting your tongue! Have a happy weekend!
