    Humility

    Humility is a word that is so often misunderstood. For me, there is incredible peace in humility. When I look into a starry night, or across a placid lake, or when I climb a rocky mountain or stand with my arms raised bathing in a thunderstorm, humility comes to mind. Humility is a word that is […]

    Messages

    Do you believe that exposure to negative or positive messages have impact on your thinking? Why do large corporations invest millions of dollars for one or two, 30 second commercials during the Super Bowl?
