Ketogenic Diet and Impostor Syndrome

OK, so I found another new passion. I’ve mentioned before that I am a combination of cyclical and simultaneous, but I often discover something new and fascinating, which I guess throws a bit of sequential into the mix. Sometimes, I think I’m related to that dog on the movie...

What are you going to do this summer?

I’m working with deaf and hard of hearing kids in a middle school, and for school people, this is a common question as we approach the end of the year.¬†What are you going to do this summer? For me, it’s different every summer. (What a surprise, right?) A few...

Multifaceted Multipassionate

Yesterday, in the space of about three hours, I waited out a hailstorm in the cable tv store, started reading a new book that came in the mail, looked up a passage in another book I’m reading to cross-reference it, changed to a third book after 50 pages or...

What about family history?

Family history can mean different things to different people. To me, the idea includes genealogy, stories, memories, and even participation in events. Scottish and Irish festivals are an example of the latter. Among the hats I wear is the one where I am the state commissioner for Clan Thompson...

Should every kid go to college?

A few days ago, I mentioned a conversation with my friends at work. Included was a discussion of the value of higher education. We work in a school setting, where advanced college degrees are a significant qualification that will help you advance in your career. That’s definitely true for...

Being Multipassionate is your super power!

I was chatting with some co-workers yesterday, and we discovered a common bond. They’re Multipassionate too! How many people do you meet on a daily basis that may share your enthusiasm for the Rainbow Life? During our conversation, we also discovered a common history. In a monopassionate world, we...

Sharing your passions with others

Discovery: my grandson loves trains. Memory: so do I. Juxtaposition: One of my passions is taking my grandsons to the Railroad Museum. This is an amazing place, full of wonder and passion. Are trains on my list of passions? I’ll have to check. The list changes all the time....

Getting my Irish passion on

In the Rainbow Life, green has always been my favorite color. Everybody is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, but my dad taught us that we’re Irish all year long. I guess it shows more around the holiday associated with the Emerald Isle. I have an Irish band called Mulligan...
