My Random Thoughts and Misc Ramblings

People of St Pete: Terrance Brown

This week I've been messing around with my categories and other sundry items. Trying to make this blog better as I'm slowly figuring out how things work and how I'm really using it. And during that process I realized that I've totally forgotten to post links to my "People" pieces for the last few months.… Continue reading People of St Pete: Terrance Brown

People of St Pete: Deneen Wyman

In a stroke of random good luck, Deneen Wyman's name was passed onto me by a reader. They thought that Deneen was an interesting woman doing some fantastic things to help empower young girls and maybe the Green Bench Monthly would like to talk with her.  And boy oh boy they were right! She was… Continue reading People of St Pete: Deneen Wyman

People of St Pete: Carl Williams

I love doing this pieces for Green Bench Monthly! They remind me how fantastic it is to LISTEN to a person's story and not just hear someone's voice. Listening not just hearing . It's a great motto for life, not just interviews. That motto came in handy the morning that Carl and I met to… Continue reading People of St Pete: Carl Williams

People of St Pete: Barbara Riddle Dvorak

I recently moved to St Pete with my wonderful partner and I absolutely love it here! The reasons why are numerous. St Pete has fabulous weather, beautiful vistas, a world-class food scene, and a thriving cultural atmosphere. But I've found that it’s truly the people that make it special, especially those people I see every… Continue reading People of St Pete: Barbara Riddle Dvorak
