    "I recently lost my job in IT. When I started working over thirty years ago, computer technology changed slowly. It was like going from a skateboard, to a bicycle, to a motorcycle, to a car. Now it’s changing so fast I can’t keep up. Every five years it goes from a skateboard to an aircraft carrier. So I’m sitting here sketching the library to keep from going nuts."

    "Im wunderschönen Monat Mai", from Dichterliebe, Op. 48/1 - Robert Schumann (1840)

    Performed by Fritz Wunderlich

    Some things from Dichterliebe got stuck in my head out of nowhere at the convenience store and so I knew I had to post something. There’s a lot of good musical irony in this song cycle; like, the words of this one, on their own, might sound completely happy but the music tells you otherwise.

    Rainer Maria Rilke. Herbsttag:

    Herr, es ist Zeit. Der Sommer war sehr gross.
    Leg deinen Schatten auf die Sonnenuhren,
    und auf den Fluren lass die Winde los.

    Befiehl den letzten Früchten, voll zu sein;
    gib ihnen noch zwei südlichere Tage,
    dränge sie zur Vollendung hin, und jage
    die letzte Süsse in den schweren Wein.

    Wer jetzt kein Haus hat, baut sich keines mehr.
    Wer jetzt allein ist, wird es lange bleiben,
    wird wachen, lesen, lange Briefe schreiben
    und wird in den Alleen hin und her
    unruhig wandern, wenn die Blätter treiben.

    "

    My goal is very simple: to make a difference in my community by encouraging women to think big and take a slice out of the tech industry that they deserve.

    Why?

    Technology is at the forefront of pushing innovation in many different sectors…
