Break Time

Gimme a break. I don't know if Kit Kat still uses that jingle as I haven't watched tv in a long time. Must have been a good jingle though - I remember it. People asking for a break is pretty tame stuff. We see it in movies, the office, a thousand vignettes a day on … Continue reading Break Time

Winter

It's a soft winter's night. The moon is nearing full and shines warmly through the cloudless sky. I sit on the porch reflecting on the goodness of life surrounded by the sounds of the city offset by my chimes swaying softly overhead. People are walking, the breeze is blowing and the city seems calm. It's … Continue reading Winter

Hearth

Home is where the hearth is. The end of year is oft a time to look back with some remiss and forward with some hope. We tend to think of highs and lows - heights and hollows - yet I find I think more of hearth as the years continue to pass. There is a … Continue reading Hearth

Get Over It

Are you pretty smart? I am. At least I thought I was. Coming out of college - check that, high school- I was convinced I was not only smart but decisive, a take-action kind of guy. Believe me, there are scenarios where you want smart take-action oriented people: if I'm in a stricken sub well … Continue reading Get Over It

What Matters Most

Be careful. Not long ago I got into a disagreement with my good friend Katarzyna. Actually it wasn't really a disagreement: I was just an idiot. At some point I had enough sense to reach out and apologize and, luckily for me, she has enough grace to accept that and forgive me. So it goes. … Continue reading What Matters Most

Two Men

Its a hot June afternoon. For sun devils like myself it can never be too hot. Yet I have an advantage: as someone who works from home I can step inside whenever its too warm and as I toil away I seldom wear more than shorts and a t-shirt. I can adapt. Moments ago a … Continue reading Two Men

If we would simply take a timeout and consume all this advice from bestsellers to morning tv to best blogs apparently … Continue reading The Art of Success

It’s Kuehl

In business as in life there are generally two types of people: those that have their act together and those that don't even know they don't. If you're feeling a little lost I suggest you hang out with my friend, Tiffany Kuehl. In social media we don't typically promote other people since we're so busy … Continue reading It’s Kuehl

Not Like Me

There's a war in America. No, not overseas but in our living rooms, back rooms and board rooms. In a remarkable surge of xenophobic pandering we've become afraid of what we don't understand and so we stop thinking, lash out and assert anything not like us is bad because, as we all know, different is … Continue reading Not Like Me

Stardust
