2016 Twenty Sixteen Two Thousand Sixteen

Happy New Year!

Man, 2015 sure gave me some ups and downs. Just thinking about it quickly, they were mostly downs. But we finished on a high note, celebrating my husband’s cousin’s marriage . Off we went to Pakistan where we enjoyed beautiful parties in honor of the bride and groom. It was colorful and happy and wonderful.

Pakistan is a place that truly inspires me. Karachi is teaming with life that is so radically different from mine. And yes, it is teaming with poverty. And that is what inspires me most.

Somehow I need to find a way to help. It is constantly in the front of my mind. Of course, having spent my life in the tech industry, I am not in any way trained as to how to help, beyond donating money and having my company match it. But I know people who do this kind of work. I must spend time with them, and pick their brains.

At the end of the day, I know I will find a way to help. And it will be my own, unique way. Even if I only help one person over there, my efforts will be worth it.

I have ideas. This is the year to turn at least one of them into action.
