Today on Quora: Can you choose my life?

A treatise on how to make a wise decision Oh to be young and millennial. I kid. It would be great if I could go back to my twenties, but only if I could keep all the wisdom I have earned. I was reminded of this when I visited my new fave site, Quora. Today […]

The Quiet

The question on Quora was intriguing—“What should I do if I don’t have clarity of thoughts?” How often do we find ourselves overwhelmed or unable to “think clearly?” I’m a meditator.

Overheard by Accident; Philosophy by Design

Count this as a rant. I was sitting at breakfast one Saturday morning recently. In the booth behind me were a young woman and an older gent. I just assumed they were father and daughter, but I’m traditional that way. Or so I thought. As I was reading the paper and waiting for my usual […]
