Fell asleep peacefully last night, only to wake up in the middle of the night with a racing heart worrying about things I can do nothing about during the middle of the night. Reminded myself that there was nothing I could do at that very moment, focused on the comfort of my bed, the sweet […]

Taking-to-an-old-friend

Old friends get together after many moments or years spent apart and reminisce about the past. They remind each other of this and that, laugh at memories that one holds and the other had forgotten… “Oh, my GAWD! I never would have thought of that ever again if you hadn’t reminded me.

This Tuesday, I had a meeting at the Google offices in San Francisco. It felt a little like I had been summoned to the internet principal’s office, but I knew I wasn’t in trouble so I wasn’t too worried. I was there to talk to a member of Google+’s marketing team. I learned about Google+’s […]
