July 3 ~  Road to Discovery Website Building

"The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, and the solution comes to you and you don't know how or why." ~ Albert Einstein

My Favorite Books

Creating Daily Celebrations each day has been on on-going road of discovery. Lots of challenges, but much satisfaction when the solutions come after hard work or with a flash of intuition.

As German philosopher Johann von Goethe once observed, "Everything is simpler than you think and at the same time more complex than you imagine."

When I first started this site in 1999, for speed, functionality, and ease, I've used Netscape's Composer and FrontPage to edit the WYSIWYG view; the computer guru in my life shuddered so much at this. Whenever I experienced a problem, he would say, "Could it be Front Page?"

So I moved on to HTML and became an advocate, coding in Notepad, loving the power of cascading stylesheets and javascripting. As I "ALT-TAB" between Notepad and my browser, I could "<html></html>" with the best of 'em. I've come a long way, but have so much further to go!

I am writing this in July 2000 and the complex World Wide Web is evolving constantly. Everyone wants a top-quality site, a site that's accessible and attractive, with 20,000 unique hits a day.

Because there is so much information out there, EVERYONE is learning and NO ONE is an expert. I like that. Keeps us all creative and on our toes.

Where are we headed? I know we are headed somewhere wonderful and I am so happy to have this website to share my journey with you.

Wonderful artist Pablo Picasso put it nicely, "My object is to show what I have found, not what I am looking for."
