Whoa, where to begin?
My personal opinions aside, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Yes, I have issues with that particular holiday but will save that for another day.
It’s been a busy month! Unexpectedly and thankfully, I was blessed with doing a magazine article and interview early in November for an upcoming issue. I wasn’t going to say anything until it was published but I’m so excited about it! I want to actually see the results before I plug it so for those of you who know about it, hush-hush please! All I can say for now is that it was a little intimidating but hopefully I didn’t totally moof the whole thing. Can you tell I totally lack self-confidence? Yeah, workin’ on it, I promise. 😉 Even before the editor contacted me, this magazine was one of my favorites. It’s groundbreaking, innovative, professional and the presentation is absolute eye-candy! I can’t say enough about how thrilled I was that they were interested in putting my perspective out there! Anyway, will put up a full plug once it’s out!
Finally, I’ve ordered my copy of Outsiders Within. I didn’t want to say much before I actually read it but have added a widget to my sidebar including some video from the launch party. Thanks to Bryan Thao Worra for doing the work of uploading to his youtube! I’m so excited to finally sit down and read this groundbreaking book! We need are own TRA awards ceremony and banquet! Anyway, more later…
Recently, I’ve been volunteering in my local library. It doesn’t pay but the perks are nice. Yes, there really are perks! The people I work with are great and despite what some might think, librarians are absolutely NOT boring and stiff. I enjoy the time I spend there both as a patron and a volunteer. Most of them knew me on a first-name basis before I started volunteering so it’s been a comfortable transition from front-desk to back-room. In the process, I figured out how to recommend purchases and of course sent in a request for Outsiders Within. Our library is terribly lacking in the adoption section. They can expect many requests from me in the future. Ahhh, I love my library! Please support your local public libraries!
Thanks to everyone who left comments and sent supportive emails concerning my last post. Hopefully, I will be able to resume normal posting and blog-reading activities soon! It’s still a bit chaotic on my end as I continue to research and prepare for Tet 2007. I intend to go all out this year. Anyone care to send me a small kumquat tree? *grin I can’t seem to get my hands on one. *sigh
