• A Storyteller’s Journey

    From time to time, CBD will be using STORYTELLING as a vehicle by which to share some of the valuable CBD lessons.  Here is our inaugural posting on the topic.

    The phrase “storytelling” is often prefaced by the sentence, “the art of…” If we consider storytelling in this context, then we must also liken it to any of the various other artistries that exist in the universe.  For something to exist as an “art,” there must be individual elements specific to the art that contribute to it...

  • Questions About Guided Pathways V – I Plead the Fifth…

    This is part 4 of a series on Guided Pathways by Rob Johnstone.

    Happy belated Cinco de Mayo for those whom it’s an important holiday - including 40-50% of my fellow Californians who will be entering higher education in 2020, which is an interesting topic to explore at a later date!  I also think it’s fitting that I’m writing this fifth blog post in the Guided Pathways Questions series on May 5th (5/5).  I should head to Vegas and bet a lot of money on “5” in roulette.  Not that I would do...

    This is part 3 of a series on Guided Pathways by Rob Johnstone.


    For most of us around the country, the time changed Saturday night to Daylight Savings Time, and while I wish somebody could figure out a way to do that without our losing an hour of sleep, I’m sure many of you who’ve endured this winter are ready for the thoughts of more sunlight and a shift in the weather pattern!  I’m heading to Austin and Indianapolis this week for SXSWedu and some planning work on...
