A GLOBAL MOBILE MOTHER’S DAY

Global mobile citizens, naturally, have a different Mother’s Day experience than they would in their home country. First, it’s not celebrated on the same day. Last week was Mother’s Day in the Czech Republic. It passed with a whisper. Nothing like Mother’s Day in the United States celebrated at mythic proportions, fueled by the capitalist […]

STILL GLOBAL, STILL MOBILE, JUST NO LONGER A FREELANCER

Dear Readers I hope you’ve missed me while I was transitioning to a new life. Gone are the lazy days of working at the kitchen table for a couple of hours before I even brushed my teeth.

When You Redefine Home

As the summer settles into fall I am beginning to realize I am redefining home.  I have had coffee and pivo with other expats to gain a sense of the road ahead.  I’m jarred a bit by the references to a transient life.  I’m not sure it’s what I’m looking for.  Do I want to […]

I’ve Given My Life to Google

The other day I remembered a promise to call someone and rushed to enter it into my calendar, my Google Calendar.  In that moment I recognized I had handed my life over to Google. It has happened a lot lately.  I agreed to take part in a webinar with a respected colleague, Nancy Mace, who […]
