Week 6:
Town Halls and Texts


August 8, 2017 | This week I was well schooled in the doctrine, “hurry up and wait.” For those of you who have yet to experience this lovely adage it is the act of doing a lot of work for a specific deadline, only to then have to wait for the action due to come about as a result […]

Week 5:
Here Comes The Rain


July 31, 2017 | After nearly three weeks of uncomfortably hot and humid weather, this week has finally boasted some cooler temperatures, not to mention some much-needed rainstorms.

While I was not able to see all of the events on the many different suggested events, I did have the opportunity to meet up with a former Cornellian, see a parade, […]

Week 1:
Busy as a Bee


July 3, 2017 | Just for clarification, yes, that is me in a bee suit, and yes, I’m also working with Global Zero, an organization working towards the elimination of nuclear weapons worldwide. Are they related? Not really, beyond the fact it is me doing both. Any and all beekeeping activities (and what delicious treats may ensue) are simply […]
