Blog Thoughts

Check out my blog, where I write of all the vagaries of my mind.  With a general focus at the intersection of or wanderings of business process & technology, communications and progressive religion.  It is here that I share what I am reading, what I am writing, what news is catching my attention and having me think differently as well as where I share about travel and food - some of my favorite home oriented topics.  It is also where I work out some of my ideas and prescriptives for change.  I only hope that you find it interesting and valuable.  Some archived writings are still housed here on the website on my Writings page.

You can also follow me, friend me, like me and whatever other verb pleases you on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.



I recently received my official Spanish birth certificate!  I now have the legal ability to live and work in 26 countries!   As most of you probably know I grew up in Spain and my Dad is originally from Tenerife in the Canary Islands.  I have lived in Spain as an adult and Matthew and I very much want to live and work there again in the future (although perhaps not full time).

Recently, Spain enacted a law that allows all children and grandchildren whose parents/grandparents were born in Spain and who left between 1936 and 1955 to 'regain' their natural Spanish citizenship.

2014: Eastern and Western Europe --  2014 is the year where we will rent an apartment in Alcala de Henares for about a month.  We are looking forward to sharing some of this time with good friends showing them around Spain and then we will take some treks to Eastern Europe to visit some of the folks we work with.

2013: Next year is the year of the family & friends vacations... the plan is to spend some quality time with family in Wisconsin & Michigan as well as a trip out to the pacific coast.

2012:  Escapes to Puerto Vallarta so that I can take a few days off.  I've somehow lost the capacity for doing so while in Colorado.

2011: Mom & Dad's 50th wedding anniversary

2011 Spring - France & Spain: We are finally taking a trip to Europe where we visit a new place.  This will be our first visit to Paris so we are very much looking forward to this trip!!  Send me any suggestions you may have.

2011 Winter - PV Again: We are making a habit of coming here and think we should invest.  :)
