There’s no denying it now. Something’s up with the planetary consciousness. Individuals, who are famous for building huge companies and loyal customers, are suddenly transitioning to something else. Something different. Sometimes, it’s not even conclusive. It’s just an ending of one thing, to be in position to begin something else.

Daryn Kagan has been part of my life, as my favorite CNN news anchor. Working from home, CNN is part of my daily routine. It’s my co-worker. The news is my office buzz. If I remember to stop to eat lunch, (I rarely remember), I turn on the TV to catch what CNN is talking about. Daryn is gone by then, but chances are, I’ve already watched her deliver the news. She’s gorgeous, earthy and natural. I even managed to forgive her taste in men (whom I heard she’s no longer dating).

Daryn is launching a new website, called She wants to focus on the positive. The world is a “good place”, she says on her site. I think it’s saying something, when a newscaster, after reporting bad news on one of the world’s largest news sources for 12 years, can continue to feel good about life.

I’m really going to miss her. It’s been a week of goodbye’s.

Greetings, to whatever is created next.
