One Mosaic Piece at a Time: We are Sisters. We are Family.

As I awaken, I look upward. My vision is out of focus. My sight gradually clears. I see a beautiful woman with bright, smiling blue eyes. She’s wearing a surgical cap. I am unable to speak. I hear her say to me: “We are sisters.” She is speaking Arabic, Egyptian...

Leading in a Global Mosaic: One Mosaic Piece at a Time

Creative Tension

The Stillness to Observe

We are facing the unexpected. Unexpected challenges. Unspeakable odds. Unimaginable loss. Be in the stillness to observe and notice what you are feeling, especially when autopilot is just not sustainable. We must pay attention. Be still. Pause within. Connect to what...

I Catch a Glimpse – A New Lens!

Lens There are a multitude of ways to perceive the world, using our eyes, our ears, our senses. Through various lenses, perspectives. We each process the world differently, in a continuous spectrum of shades that change over time. The pragmatic lens. The spiritual...

I Catch a Glimpse – My Livelihood!

Livelihood. Today's word is inspired by the picture in this post. I imagined a young man or woman using the bicycle as a means to their livelihood, their life. I see four words. Live, Lively, Hood, and Livelihood. Multiple meanings that connect to each other into one...
