The invisible made visible: It’s what you do!

"The world is a stage, but the play is badly cast." ~ Oscar Wilde From whence cometh humanity? Have you given much thought to that question?

Creative Cycles, Creative Outcomes!

I came across unrelated but commonly themed articles today that contained ideas worth spreading. The technological advances of our current era are transforming the way people interact.
