Twelve boys and a babe

27 06 2012

QUITE A while back, I found myself staring at the precipice of change.  It was something that I have never considered doing on my own volition.  But I embraced it, together with all the uncertainty it foisted on my way.

Walk beside me and be my friend.

It turned out to be a path of self-discovery I never knew could still happen to someone who has been walking on this planet for nearly four decades now.  There are a lot to be grateful for and I want to start with a few people whose gift of acquaintance – now friendship – opened up to me worlds that I have never discovered prior their arrival.

I’m fortunate to work with them on projects that nurture the side of me that loves to plan and stage events.  I dedicate this space to them as I share with you a rare glimpse into their other facets by way of five simple questions.
