Glide

Posted in Stuff with tags , , , on November 29, 2009 by Frizz

Back in the San Francisco days one of the many major life changers for me was the first time I volunteered at Glide Memorial. Preparing food, wrapping food in bags, that kind of stuff.  I felt like I was part of something and I was. I was browsing their website and checking out the volunteer opportunities over the Holidays. All but one shift is full. That’s just so awesome. But, I must remember, people are hungry not just over the holiday season.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

November

Posted in Stuff with tags , , , , on November 3, 2009 by Frizz

October pretty much flew by for me. The first of the month my newest niece Lauren was born. Then my other niece Samantha had her 6th birthday on October 19. It was a month of work and trying to be as chill as possible. Started Yoga which has been great. But, mostly as much as I love the month of October it was quiet and on the “down low.”

We have now moved into November and then comes the big Xmas. I love the lights and the decorations and the whole idea of Christmas. However, I’m not a huge fan of shopping and all that comes with that.

With the approach of Thanksgiving though I enjoy one of my favorite meals. Yep, it’s Tofurky

Be back soon!
