What Are You Waiting For?

An old bench

    There must have been a time when this bench waited expectantly. Waited for someone to come and sit awhile. Waited for impatient children to wiggle and giggle. Waited for lovers to snuggle and kiss. Waited for tired men down on their luck to lay and rest. Those days are gone. The bench got […]

Wallspace

          Walking down Polk Street, killing time before an appointment on a grey day, I see the pop of color in my periferal vision as I cross Austin Street. Vibrant art covers what would otherwise be boring walls and the street turns into an open-air art gallery. The space for artists […]

In My Bloggy World (Fragmented Fridays)

by Claudya Martinez August 31, 2012

Blogging is a regular part of my life and although commonplace for me, there are people out there that just don’t get it. They don’t get the point of blogging, they don’t really understand what blogging is, or they think blogging is sooo 10 years ago. Little do these people realize that blogging is not […]

I’m sure we’ve all experienced excellent customer service, horrible customer service and a whole spectrum in between. Customer service basics seem to have gone by the wayside. For some reason many people in customer service have never been trained how to give good service. Sure they’ve been trained how to use the cash register or […]
