Thanks for Visiting

Welcome to my blog! I primarily joined WordPress to catalogue things that interest me, such as family photos, news articles, art projects, and hiking experiences, as well as to hopefully in some small way bore or irritate the NSA.

These are my opinions and I hope you will find something here that is useful or entertaining. I will try not to talk too much about my pet lizard or sports-induced asthma.

The Dalai Lama at UMD

“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”
Dalai Lama at the University of MarylandUnfortunately I wasn’t able to procure a ticket to see His Holiness in person, but I still watched the simulcast of the Dalai Lama receiving his Doctorate of Humane Letters from the University of Maryland today. Of course I was at work during the event so I could not pay attention as closely as I would have liked; I will certainly have to re-watch later today.

When I was stopping in College Park for a coffee this morning, I could hardly believe that I was occupying the same town at the same time as the Dalai Lama. I can only imagine how everyone in the Comcast Center this morning must have felt! What a meaningful and uplifting way to spend a rainy Tuesday morning.

This year I began a Web Design Certificate program through Prince George’s Community College. I am 2.5 classes into an 8 class program. Here is my latest award! I love the entirely legitimate “Official Seal of Excellence” in the bottom left corner.
