Art in My Life

Welcome to TaraVanGeons.com

Wanna chat over a cup o' jo?

I am always up for a chat. It must include #COFFEE, though.

Aspiring Goddess

I am proactive, highly ambitious, creatively and strategically-minded, and seek collaborative and effective partnerships. On a personal note, as my Google+ profile states, I am also an “aspiring goddess.”

If you're not doing what you love, you're wasting your time.

This morning, I was very fortunate to see a friend’s post on LinkedIn. It was an image that stated, “If you’re not doing what you love, you’re wasting your time.” I find this intriguing and compelling.

I am a Writer

“To write more” has consistently been on my to-do list every year. It has remained on the top three of my New Year’s resolutions for minimum, fifteen years. But by the end of the year, I have this terrible feeling that I have let myself down.

Slowly, But Surely

Slowly, but surely, this website is being updated. I am trying to gather old information, new information, and stuff that I think is just plain cool. Being a mom is taking first place right now as is my position at Integro Technologies. But stay tuned. More to come. I promise!
