Endings

I’m going home. They say home is where your heart is, and that’s exactly right. My heart is with my family, and they aren’t here. They’re in my house in Dacula, Georgia, just northeast of Atlanta. Me? Well, for the…

We are ephemera.

I had a very emotional day this week when I found out an old friend of mine had passed away over a year ago. I was upset, and angry at mutual friends who already knew and hadn’t reach out to…

Rest in peace, Marilyn Daniel-Ware

Ignorance is definitely bliss. After a lovely, leisurely lunch with some friends today, I grew nostalgic. I thought back to my college days, to when I was doing college radio. I thought about the friends I made when I worked…

Photos: Kennedy Space Center

I’ve always wanted to visit Kennedy Space Center and I finally got around to crossing that particular item off my “bucket list” this past weekend. Even better, I was able to tour the Vehicle Assembly Building, where all the Saturn…

Changes

I’m burned out. I’ve been working on one project for over two years now, and I’m over it. I have a hard time getting motivated, and find it difficult to care about what I’m doing. I look at my inbox…

Yesterday is forever

I grew up in a suburb of Birmingham, Alabama. We would visit my dad’s parents every month, a 45-minute drive away, and I looked forward to every visit. It wasn’t because I liked my grandparents… Like my father, they were…

Letting Go

It’s been a heck of a year. Highs and lows, peaks and valleys. If you had told me a year ago that I would be moving to Australia, to build a team to work on a huge, high profile project…

Dad.

The human being also known as Paul Douglas Dickerson ended his conscious existence and life sometime during the day of November 5th 2010. He was alone, in his bedroom, in Moody Alabama. He was also my father. The reason I…

Videos from Sydney

I’ve been taking lots of videos lately with my IPhone of downtown Sydney – it’s one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and I’m still thrilled that I have the opportunity to work (and bring my family) over…
