Human weaknesses

‘Everybody’ knows about the strengths in human nature! By ‘everybody‘ I mean a majority of people. In any event ‘everybody’ uses the term ‘everybody’ – or ‘not everybody’ conveniently – so I’m using the term. And – I don’t give a monkeys whether I know ‘everybody’ – and I don’t!Read More

Things will work themselves out – I’m told

This week was amazing! I met a really intelligent person, who reminded me of myself when I was much younger. In the course of our conversations, we identified some challenges or things that need to be resolved in their work-life interface. All inferences made about my relationship to this personRead More

Knock on the door

Well, I’m making breakfast this morning – around 10:00 AM – and I hear the doorbell ring. No – I didn’t think that the ‘authorities’ had come for me, finally. So I step into my storm porch and see a man and a child. He’s smartly dressed in suit andRead More
