From my friend Pete!
From my friend Pete!
I have not heard from my friend Pete in a while, but as always when she reappears, she has a gem. I was about to try to write one of those inspiring pieces that I always want to write, but somehow never manage to when I WANT to, and here this fell in my lap. […]
As I stumble my way through life, I often find myself inadvertently doing what, as far as I can tell, I was actually born to do. It is rather ironic that in all my deep explorations of self; all my questioning of what my purpose in the world is; what I actually want to do with life, […]
Haven’t heard from friend Pete in a while, but as always when she speaks up she hits the nail on the head. I like her point, as well as the rather hilarious (and well written) letter she has pointed out. For the lack of anything useful to say myself today, I reposted this.

One guy even spent a whole winter living in a tiny wooden shack surrounded by hungry polar bears. I mean, […]
Since this has turned out to be one of the most popular posts on my blog, I feel it necessary to point out that it was not actually written by me, but by by good friend Pete of A Girl Called Pete. I Highly recommend you swing over and say hi! Sometimes I sit and watch the […]
As far as manual dexterity tasks go, patting your head is not up there in the top ten most difficult. Neither is rubbing your belly. But if you’ve ever tried patting your head and rubbing your belly at the same time you’ll know it’s a bit harder than it looks. Disassociating the actions of one […]
