Ph.inisheD

The May, 2015 edition of Sibyl Magazine features a thread in my life’s tapestry — From GED to PhD.

COVER May 2015 SIBYL MAGAZINE

I left home/school when I was 15. That personal choice meant getting a GED instead of graduating with my class. I went on to earn my PhD. And while I’m Ph.inisheD with brick-and-mortar academia, I’ll never be done learning.

What’s your most recent learning?

Not All Painting Is Art

My friend Barbara Kass recently wrote an engaging blog post titled “The Presence of Decisions.” As I shared with her, it made me think about several people over the years who’ve said, “I feel like I’m painted into a corner.”


All we have to do is but look in our own hand
to see who is holding the paintbrush

Life is a series of choices and consequences. It takes a series of choices to get into the corner; it takes a series of different choices to get back out.

When was the last time you painted yourself into a corner—
literally or figuratively?

Listen with your heart,
