Shout out to Todd Rundgren
I gave up blogging a few years ago. I liked it -- in fact at times I loved it -- but I do miss the practice. It made me feel smart. And if you know me very well at all you know I like to feel smart more than anything. I'd rather be smart than pretty any day! Hasn't that worked out well for me?
Truly, the reason I quit it was that we raised the funds and built a new facility for Community Partners of Dallas in Dallas' Caring Corridor. As the President and CEO, I was involved in every donor ask and every decision made on the building from carpet to ceiling. We moved to the new building in January and it is wonderful. I'll write later about those choices and how they were made, but know that this place is going to be a revolution in how children are cared for by CPS.
And abused and neglected children need all the revolutions they can get!
The garden (a British floral designer I heard recently asked why we call our yards "yards" instead of gardens, so I'm embracing it now) has had work done, but you can get an idea here.
