Welcome to Carolyn’s Nonprofit Blog


If you know me well, you know I am a, “Googler.” Sharing an iPhone panorama of my neighborhood this spring, artfully enhanced by Google via its photo app.

Let us all strive to be champions. Be fearless.

“To be a champion, I think you have to see the big picture. It’s not about winning and losing; it’s about every day hard work and about thriving on a challenge. It’s about embracing the pain that you’ll experience at the end of a race and not being afraid. I think people think too hard and get afraid of a certain challenge.”

~ Summer Sanders, American athlete (b. 1972)
