maybe redemption has stories to tell
maybe forgiveness is right where you fell
where can you run to escape from yourself?
i dare you to move.
Things I was not made for:
Wearing high heels to work.
Convincing men in suits that I am "committed."
Things I was made for:
Seeing the beauty in small things.
Encouraging other people to commit themselves to what makes their hearts sing.
Tonight I felt alive in my kitchen.
Electric skillet cooking.
Cooking the radishes.
Half-dead lilacs, pieces of shells from the beach, passport, great aunt.
On March 16 I was in a discount department store looking for a specific article of clothing. After browsing endless "Clearance" racks in the women's department and not having found what I was looking for, I ventured to the men's department to see if they had what I was looking for. I noticed that the men's department had but one "Clearance" rack. A miniscule assortment of promotional advertising to the shoppers who were not women.
Yesterday I had a "successful" professional female look me in the eyes and tell me in all sincerity that, though she has had opportunities to open a 401k, she was waiting for a husband to "be her 401k."
Tonight I sat in a largely female audience at a discussion entitled "Talk Data To Me." The presentation panel was comprised of three men. Three white men spent two hours divulging their expert knowledge to a room dominated by women.

Please critically observe the world around you.
Learn how to learn. Question society.
A developer emailed me today saying this:
I'm looking at the sprite image on S7 and this is what I get
Could you help me with this, please ?
Thank you, Regards
Here was my answer:
- tried adding in a specific width (4150) to the preset
- tried replacing preset – with _ (hp_logo_sprite)
Neither of those changed anything.
Then I added $hp_logo_sprite$ to a different image which worked…
Then I tried ignoring the preset and forcing a specific width to the URL:
It seems that Scene7 does not allow files that are wider than 4000 (even though my max image size in Image Rendering settings Is set to 5000 x 5000.
I love a/b testing designs and subject lines for email. Today I took a promotional design and adjusted the hierarchy subtly. I'm excited to see how this affects customer engagement.
The original design had "New Markdowns Taken!" as the opening line. In my test I shorteneed this to "New Markdowns!" and also made the font a little smaller.
The original design had a very bold "50% OFF" which I reduced from Bold to Semi-Bold.
Also, the Find A Store button was fairly small, so I enlarged it and also enlarged the CTA text as well as made the "In Store Only" line a little smaller.
