Back to blogging

I'm baaack! I finished school at the end of July and I've been reading and cooking and I'm ready to be back to blogging these adventures.

 Most recently, I have finished reading The Art of Possibility by Rosamund Stone Zander and Benjamin Zander.  She is a psychologist and he is a conductor for the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra.  The book is published by Harvard Business School Press and is designed to help anyone, but especially leaders, to think in new ways.  The book is segmented into chapters, called practices:

Talking with my dad, he thought this fell into the realm of "the power of positive thinking."  While this might be somewhat true, I enjoy the opportunity to get out of my box and think more positively.  I think it can go a long way in interacting with others.

I was also inspired to listen to more classical music.  Mr. Zander has a powerful way of talking about the music that makes you want to dive in.  Check out his TED talk.
