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. As such, I believe in the power of breathing. But, what came to me from this question, was the power of the quiet. I […]

Can We Agree to Disagree?

The Power of Perception I love Quora. In fact, I am grateful that there is a site where anyone can ask about anything and the people of the “Net” are gracious enough to answer. I’ve shared things. I’ve learned things. Today, someone asked a question that hit a nerve. The question was “Why do people […]

You Can’t Drive A House? Take A Look…

As I’ve said, wisdom comes in many forms. We got an great look into the all male world of advice in a recent episode of Blue Bloods, the Tom Selleck series…in full disclosure, I watched every Magnum P.I. episode and most of his other works so I may be biased–plus one of my beloved cousins, […]

Thank You, Jessica, For Your “World Wide Rave”

It’s been a week since President Obama interrupted our Sunday evening television to let us know about a successful military action. We’ve been at war with Al Qaeda for 10 years. Our Navy Seals executed a secret mission that ultimately led to the death of its leader, Osama Bin Laden. Like many, I had mixed […]

Big World, Small Town—It’s all in your perspective

Christina Ricci, after 50 films, does not believe she’s famous. Or something like that. What a refreshing thought. She plays mind games, she said. “The whole world’s a small town and everyone’s on my side.” It’s not really a mind game, it’s a refreshing perspective from one of Hollywood’s more prolific actresses. Again I was […]
