intro’d to Angela at bif 6 (?) – adding page when Deb and Sandy share this about neighorhood centers:

“Neigh­bor­hood Cen­ters goes where we are in­vited to go, and we do what we are asked to do,” reads the group’s web­site. The idea is to fig­ure out what works and how to build on it, not to look for prob­lems, a some­what unique mis­sion in the non­profit world.

[..]

An­gela Blan­chard, an el­eg­ant, straight-talk­ing force of nature in this part of the world, has been at the helm of the or­gan­iz­a­tion for the past two dec­ades.

[..]

“Des­pair is very ex­pens­ive,” she said over din­ner one even­ing at a quiet res­taur­ant in the trendy Mon­trose neigh­bor­hood dur­ing a can­did con­ver­sa­tion peppered with de­light­fully un­ex­pec­ted but ex­pertly em­ployed swear words.

If I were to rewire my brain to be a constant learner how would I begin? What exercises would I do to have a “fit and healthy” brain?

perhaps .. free yourself from supposed to’s and trust your curiosity…

So grateful for @CajunAngela in my life, on the BIF Board, & coming to RI! Be still my heart. Read this: https://t.co/MZIZDwz9WS (http://twitter.com/skap5/status/919544110167547904?s=17)

What do you consider to be your greatest accomplishment as CEO? What will be your legacy?
I hate this question. All accomplishments are temporary. And nothing is accomplished alone. I’m not interested in legacies. I don’t even like what I did a year ago — so i have no interest in preservation of projects. The past is a book already written — and it’s lessons are available to us if we will practice humble reflection.

People who hate government don’t care that it’s shut down. Some people think of federal government only as an impediment to their ambitions. And will enjoy the angst this creates – for a while.

Why I love “diversity” –
We get just one life … unless we are willing to gently know another person – enter their world and live briefly through their eyes.
With curiosity and empathy we can have an endless number of lives.
My favorite thing about being alive. (http://twitter.com/CajunAngela/status/992386343127994369?s=17)

Don’t say hateful things about people. These powerful people you’re raging at probably don’t care what hateful things you say about them – but – doing so burns your soul. Don’t hurt your soul. You need your soul.

Lessons I’ve learned from knowing displaced people:

If you’re going to be any use to the world – your “safe place” better be inside you. If you need your own comfort guaranteed before you can show up, you’re likely to be in the way once you get to the arena.

I find that I am happiest in shelters and camps. I need to be with people who’ve been uprooted. Unmoored. They know something about this journey we’re on. And they value connection because they were saved by grace. (http://twitter.com/CajunAngela/status/1035835497334157312?s=17)
