the interesting idea... the start of this project... the conversations to come

I'm a member of Post Crossing, the internet site for postcard exchange. I sent a card to another Post Crosser, Ilona from Germany. She asked that people tell her which magical power they would like to have. Her question really made me think!

In turn, I thought it would be an interesting project to ask people to pose Thought-Provoking Questions. I would do my best to answer with my opinion, and I would encourage others to add theirs.

And, so was born this blog! I hope that it will be the home for many interesting conversations in the year ahead!

Career Advice?

Prixilla from Brazil ponders a question I still ponder, at a point much older than she is:

I just started in college and I am dedicating a year only to studying but it is not in the course of my dreams. I want to be a fashion designer but I didn't pass. Should I keep trying or try to like the course I'm in?

I'm tempted to trot out my "wise old woman" costume and dispense sage advice - something having to do with "following your dream" or something having to do with "making a living." Truth is, at the age of "just started in college," she's got lots of time to do both!


  1. Oh yes, it took me years to find my dream job - but I hated the course I needed to get it!
    What a neat idea this. I am usually at a loss as to what to write on my postcards. Glad you wrote this link on mine.

  2. Thanks for sharing great career advice.
