Pride before the fall (I mean autumn … I hope)

I’m taking some needed family time the next few days but have a couple big announcements before I do.

First, I’ve learned that I’ll be speaking at the TEDx 1,000 Lakes Conference in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, at the Reif Center on Monday, Sept. 19. I’ll be taking many of the ideas you read here at the blog and turning them into an entertaining short presentation that I think you’ll like. These TED talks are delivered and streamed live, and beamed out to a online audience. All of you can watch, no matter where you are, though a couple hundred folks will be there in person. The theme of the event is “Expanding Opportunity” with a focus on northern Minnesota’s future.

Further, I am very much in the midst of producing a live radio variety show for 91.7 KAXE on Saturday, Oct. 15 at the Hibbing Community College theater. This project represents a long standing ambition of mine. With cuts, losses and the ongoing economic malaise of our times, I am fighting back with songs, music and comedic sketches. Watch out.

There will be more discussion of these events in the future. It’s shaping up to be a very challenging but exhilarating autumn for yours truly. It all looks so pleasant now before my semester begins at work, but I’m sure we’ll be touch-and-go for a time next month. Thank you all for reading and supporting my work. I could not do this without you.
