You needn’t see it to believe it.

I had an unusual conversation yesterday that I feel is worthy of further consideration. A new acquaintance, whom I have not met in person, asked me where I thought the world was headed.

Economic wounds must be healed by the action of the cells of the economic body - the producers and consumers themselves. ~ Herbert Hoover Herbert Hoover's response to the Great Depression- a fiscally conservative approach that relied more on a call to confidence and …

The Antidote to Premature Aging

  A friend of mine told me that she was inspired by the example of others recently to start a new hobby. The hobby she chose, rowing, met several criteria for her as it was outdoors, involved opportunities for solitude as well as social time and provided exercise without physical exertion being the central focus. …

No when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em

I read an article yesterday morning that stood out to me as being a particularly clear example of how we as a society can end up pouring good money after bad, for an apparently good reason. We are on the verge of a health crisis. I'm not speaking of health care reform, but instead of …

Change, Vulnerability and Self-Respect

"He that respects himself is safe from others; he wears a coat of mail that none can pierce." ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow   I am surrounded by people who aspire to excellence.
