Dock at Moskey Basin, Isle Royale National Park, August 2008. Care to leap headlong into the cold blue water?

 
 

For all of us awash in the flotsam and jetsam of the publishing industry, I’ve found an incredibly inspiring post on Connie Bensen’s blog regarding Rachel Gabrielle.

 

 

How often do you see yourself in the conversation? I see myself in the conversation quite a bit more often. The explosion of social media has given us all opportunities to improve ourselves and those around us with the daily delivery of personal anecdote and experience. I can hardly recall how we functioned before when basic information was held so close to the vest, stacked behind firewalls, and rationed in monetized segments.

 

The liberating feeling of being able to so quickly and easily convert ideas into energy is palpable. 

 

I saw myself in this post. A newspaper waif with a solid skill set built for communication but finding the railroad gauges have all been changed and my engine stuck on the old tracks.

 

Rachel’s ability to adapt and her instinct to position herself for the right opportunity is based in the fundamental flow of good thoughts we are all learning to harness.
