Collages from Flickr photos

My creation

the program chose them from my photos flickr found the most interesting... why am I so many times on it? as with personal stories, people like a lot photographies telling of personal life too. And also some who provoke emotions in them, usually similar as I had when I had taken them.


Two month ago begun my first Path

It seems so far now, but it really was only two month ago. I become member of the Great Communicators club, not far from where I lived once and my daughter still lives. And by this membership, I also become member of the district that is the second pilot for the Toastmasters International new educational program, now called Pathways.

A program more tailored to our needs but still having grows pains.

Had of course problems with its wrinkles, "you wanted to be an early adapter? those are the consequences!" someone wrote me when I complained. True, even if it did hurt when I heard it.

Once I went through, struggled through, finished my Icebreaker, Pathways style, I had to wait. Wait? I could not even read farther till my "Base Camp Manager" approved it!

Are we in elementary school?

Once I was through, I was delighted, and whatever happened on the way, did stay delighted. I love all what I learned in these two month. I love the new education it offered me. I love the new thoughts and opportunities.

I do love the new Pathways program.
If going from Level 1 once I finished all its tasks to Level 2 was again a problem, and also getting the certificate for that level, when I finished the second, I already "knew" and got through to have the certificate all by myself. As a big girl. I am now enjoying Level 3 with so many electives. I have to chose only two of them, I already did, but read through many others too.

I can also see better now how well constructed the path are. Read a few wonderful books. Offered some great stories. And some less great probably, too. Learned on the way.

But for details on that I opened my new blog Pathways Experience.
