What never to do

Was at TEDx San Diego today, what an amazing experience. It’s going to take a few days to process what I learned. But there was one very simple lesson I learned today. Guys, don’t get up in front of an audience wearing pants that are too small. If the pants pull enough to form a star around your crotch it distracts. Your message gets lost in the absurdity of your appearance. And if that’s what you want to say, OK wear the pants. But if your trying to make an impression for a serious conference which will be televised, consider asking someone else how it appears.


Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
