Rave Pubs just published my most recent missive - ‘Knit One, Purl Two. 

"Go ahead n’ pull, you might get what you want or a surprise worth waiting for, depending on your point of view.   With the music business still in disarray and profits bleeding out like a moonshine still at the wrong end of a ATF shotgun the pundits have declared, yet again, Rock’s demise. "

The Impostor Syndrome - saying it out loud and being okay

A fellow blogger at RavePubs, Gina Sansivero, posted a very brave and personal observation on the successful persons disease, the fear of being found out as a fake. The impostor syndrome, while not considered a true psychosis, the phenomenon appears to be more prevalent in women than men.

Why is this? Perhaps the conflicting social pressures of being able to ‘bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan” weigh heavily. I do not have the training to make a definitive diagnosis - I will rely on Susan Pinker’s book on the subject. Pinker quotes is Dr. Margaret Chan, the Chief of the World Health Organization who has stated


“There are an awful lot of people out there who think I’m an expert. How do these people believe all this about me? I’m so much aware of all the things I don’t know.”

It would be interesting to see what a Women in CE forum would produce on this subject.

And for the record Gina, you have got the right stuff.

From latest my Rave Blog Squad post #AVTWEEPS 

Truly Useful Engine  

Perspective can change everything, running straight line the countryside is truly bucolic  but when the train jerks ‘round a turn you find that the rolling hills hide a shanty town.  Which side of the tracks your business is living on can be a fluid line. One month you are in the middle of richly appointed houses with green lawns and blooming gardens the next morning it is in a freight yard of dinged cars and grimy out buildings.   

How could this happen?  Perhaps you rode the line too far without checking; All lines end somewhere and these places look nothing like they do on Sodor.  Anyone who has ‘ridden the rails’ will tell you that the first rules -(after keep away from the bulls) - are to keep an eye on where the train is heading and to be wary of junctions.
