2011 Goal Revisit: Go to Coachella

Another 2011 goal revisited and crossed off! I am so lucky to have been able to have the experience of going to Coachella. Just like a dream, it is nearly impossible to put the weekend into words that would adequacy describe it. So instead of making the attempt, I'll just say that I am so thankful that I was able to attend, for my boyfriend that put up with my nonsense and for all the great memories we now have. Coachella 2013 here we come!

Let Us Dedicate Ourselves to That

"let's dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world".

As I read Tom Brokaw's Boom!, there is much to learn from those who paved the way in the 1960's. Many fought for the life that we are able to live today, and have left many opportunities for us to improve tomorrow. As I read Bobby Kennedy's speech that followed the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I am reminded of these people. The people who humbly stood up, not for praise, or fame, but for what they knew was right.
