Hummingbird Heart.

My heart is racing. My heart is racing.

The reason:

Once upon a time, in a month long, long ago (aka March), many a thing I was interested in was due, on the same day. Some serious things, and some silly things. I decided to try for all of them.

Thanks to that initial decision, I won a $200 gift card to a local boutique, became a 2012 Summer Scholar at St. Olafs in Minnesota to learn Danish this June/July, and most recently (read: 120 seconds ago) was accepted to speak at a conference in Copenhagen, Denmark this August(!)


Try. Everything.

You are basically a rock star. I miss you very much, and think, if that $200 gift card is to nectar, that we should go together. I am very proud of you!
