A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

Daniel H. Pink's New Book is Out!

Being big fans of Daniel Pink's work (six previously written books), this evening was the perfect timing for my hubby Bill and I to scoot down to the historic Sixth&I synagogue in Washington, DC to hear author Daniel Pink talk about his new book: When - The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing. 

Tonight's review of the book coupled with Q&A session in DC was the kick off on his "world book tour" of When. Thankfully, we were not disappointed in his thought provoking research and his"new way of thinking" about "big data" and the impact it has on our lives. With humor, candor and a plethora of stories, he "pinged" and "ponged" his way through the data to unlock some of the secrets of good timing to help his readers/listeners flourish at work, at school, and at home. He went on to discuss something we all know: timing is everything, but is it really? We assume that timing is an "art", but in When, he makes it clear timing is really a science.

Two other favorite books of ours by Mr. Pink are: To Sell is Human and Drive.

BSoleille! The bright side of a date night with an energizing crowd at sixth&i.
