Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Happy New Year 2009

« Best Conversations of 2008 | Main | Real Collaboration »


Thou Art but Grace
May thy (continue to) be as graceful
as the swallow
silhouetted agin' a pretty eve
and as majestic
as the hawk
seeking a prey
May thy days bring wonder
and joy

And may all the gods in thy heavens
bless thee
entertain thee
(for what else would be their pleasure?)
and guard thee and thine

And may yon forthcoming twelve-month
be wondr's and a delight!

Continue thy grace
(I beseech thee!)
but "professional" be not be!
That is a scourge! (I say!)
A betrayer of thyself
and a cover for darkness
that has no place
over thee!

Thou art but grace!
ye need only be that
My Lady (I espouse,
with a bow,
and a curtsy, too!)
My Gentlewoman,
My Epistlarian (sorry)
to inform us
of what should be!

Perform the act of triage. Look at what needs doing and prioritize; focusing on the activities that will have the most positive impact whilst eliminating the ones that have the least.

This year I'm going to focus on being helpful and executing (ideas are nothing more than wasted thoughts if I don't find ways to execute them and share them with the world. Don't you think?).

But anyway, here's to a great 2009 Valeria! Thanks for all of the great, quality content!

Your post's, often slow me down a bit and bring a certain peace. I "prefer to be kind, over right." think I will hold onto that one.

Happy New Year.
