Plant a new Truffula. Treat it with care....

"But now" says the Once-ler,
"Now that you're here,
the word of the Lorax seems perfectly clear.
UNLESS someone like you
cares a whole awful lot,
nothing is going to get better.
It's not."

About Me I grew up in the Boston area and have those strong pragmatic New England roots... yet at the same time I enjoy taking the path less travelled.

I want to make a positive impact on the world. I'm driven to constantly make a difference in whatever I do.

For those who enjoy the Myers Briggs personality tests, I'm an INTP. I'm a type 1 on the Enneagram chart. Yes, I enjoy social psychology.

I like to travel to remote areas, though I've done little of that lately, given how much I have been working. In the meantime, I'm enjoying life, loving having two children, and doing fun things like work on Care2 Connect!

Wild Fact About Me I live here. Really.
My Philosophy you are what you think about
What Gives Me Hope everything always works out for the best in the end... if you want it to... and I do.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by tough one... hmmm, I guess I'd force everyone to become a lifelong member of Care2 ;)
What/who changed my life and why I'd have to say my parents. Combined, they taught me the importance of hard work, high standards, compassion for those less fortunate, love, responsibility, respect for the natural world and integrity. I am incredibly fortunate to have such two amazing role models.

Inspirations the beauty of nature, good people, Springtime, Nature, My wife, my children  
What Scares Me apathy, Global Warming

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS !!

     

    Sorry Randy,  I'm not going to rely on C2 e-cards to get my message to you this time - the last twice I sent a batch out, only half got there !

    Just a short, but very heartfelt, message to wish you and your loved ones a very happy festive season (whatever you personally celebrate this time of year).  Hoping that 2014 will be a much better year (for us all) than 2013 has been.  May it bring Peace, Happiness and, above all, Good Health !!   Lots of love and hugs,  Pamela
