Do you know me ? I would love to talk to you then , because I am beginning to believe that I do not know me as well as I always thought that I did . This is a new me , that is new to me. My life and wants and desires are in flux. There are things that are so different than they were before. Then they could ever be.  I am am author but I am also a recruiter. I love recruiting.

I am old enough to remember working in an office where I had to share a clunky desktop PC that only displayed pixilated green type on a black screen and was not connected to anything other than the electrical outlet. I remember a world before ubiquitous email, incessant social media updates, and text messages that follow you everywhere.
