My favorite older member of the camp was this elderly man. His humility and sweet smile drew me to his side of the factory as soon as I saw him. His job was to fix the spinning wheels when they broke. He got so much joy out of showing us how the wheels work and how he is able to fix them from common problems. All of this was done without a single word spoken, just a smile. I wanted nothing more than to give him a great big hug, but a simple bow is probably more appropriate in his culture.

The thing that drew me to the topic of reading was the recent reading material I have been absorbed by. It’s the book “Think Like a Rock Star: How to Create Social Media and Marketing Strategies that Turn Customers into Fans” by Mack Collier, founder of #Blogchat. Yes, that’s the same Mack Collier who I have celebrated as a social media hero for creating the community of bloggers who provide each other encouragement, information, opinions and laughs each Sunday night.http://janiceperson.com/agriculture/ag-awareness/agricultural-magazines-farm-books/
This first picture you see here? That’s me going all fan-girl on Clay Walker – the Country Musician who is responsible for my love of country music. His songs first drew me in 20 years ago…
This weekend I had the pleasure of seeing Silje Nes at a cafe here in Santa Cruz. Silje Nes, from Norway but based in Berlin, plays beautiful and eccentric folk music, making use of a xylophone, marimba, flute and guitar. She also plays with a violinist and percussionist. Her music, a kind of makeshift symphony, drew me in, and I ended up perhaps a little too close to the stage trying to capture the moment.

What’s your follow through plan?
Having a follow through plan where you can track results is key to measuring success of any given campaign.
What commitments did you make for 2013?
At the start of 2013 I made a commitment that I was going to expand my guest blogging efforts and unlike many resolutions we make I’ve followed through.
I’ve written about everything from blogging to pinterest to profiles. Without further ado, here are the guest posts. I hope you find them really helpful!
It's really easy to make a goal - it's a little harder to actually follow through with it. You can think that you want something, but then you can make every excuse not to do it. Don't let that be you in 2014. Think long and hard about what you hope to accomplish and set your mind to it!

In current climate, religious tolerance is being redefined
As Catholics look ahead to the 50th anniversary of the documents of Vatican II on religious liberty and on the ecumenical and interreligious relationships of the Catholic Church, there has been certainly no better time than the recent Fortnight for Freedom for the church in the U.S. to enter into the dialogue about religious liberty.
The current danger is the possibility that we confuse the right of religious liberty with the principle of religious toleration.
By keeping this clear distinction in our minds and hearts, people of various religious traditions and of no religious faith at all can co-exist in a multifaith society marked by religious liberty and religious toleration for each.
