Fat Man Running

Global Citizen here, and I’m going to tell you about yesterday. Yesterday I ran participated in a 5k race. Why would I do such a thing? My friend David and I had made a list of goals that we would like to accomplish this quarter, and in addition to some business goals, he we decided we should have some physical goals on the list too. So, “Finish a 5k” was placed on that list. No problem – it’s easy to write down an additional item on a list. Fast forward 2 weeks ago. On one of our regularly scheduled touch...

Thank You Lamy

Global Citizen here. This time, with a teachable moment on Customer Service. Those of you who have met me in person, know that I have one some quirks. Rather than turn this into a transcript of a session with a psychiatrist, I will share one of these quirks with you. I always write with one particular pen – a Lamy L497, 3+1 pen (isn’t she a beauty?) I never leave home without. I have taken photos with this pen. It has a special resting place at night. It completes me. WHAT?? Don’t. You. Judge. Me. Steve Jobs is to...

Open Letter to GRU Airport

Dear GRU Airport Administration, Global Citizen here and I would like to end my relationship with you. It brings me no joy in sharing my conclusion with you, as I love Brasil.

But even melted cheese cannot repair the damage you have done to my soul in less than 24 hours. I landed...

Erik Klein Wolterink, Kitchens in NYC

Global Citizen here. Following up my post about Ramen, I came to find out about Dutch photographer Erik Klein Wolterink. It is such a small world. As many of you know, I have a fond place in my heart for both the Netherlands and photography. Rather than turning this article into a name-dropping session only to be rivaled by TMZ, I will keep the “how?” short, and focus on the “so what? “. If you’ve been following this blog since the beginning, you’ll know that I once started a photography business via a webshow that I created. Episode after...

Ramen. It builds character.

Global Citizen here. It’s lunchtime here in casa de ciudadano del mundo. As I was contemplating my lunch dining options, I chuckled, thinking about a memory… something resembling deja vu… I had been here before. This was a scene I was familiar with. Opening the packaging of the 39 cent sodium-laden goodness, and placing it in a bowl, I was reminded of the time I launched my first business. Unique Davis Solutions, Take 1 — dreams of building a technology consultancy focused on business intelligence – such hopes of greatness that I imagined all the dust clouds that my...
