Minutes and Moments

A minute will expire – A moment can live in your heart and mind for the rest of your life. Minutes are largely unremarkable and not necessarily memorable. A moment is an opportunity; a bracketed collection of intentional minutes. We can be slaves to the minutes… we need to master the moments. While it may be […]

11% Day

It has been said that we humans are using less than 10% of our brains. I was never much of a science-person so I have no idea how such a figure is even quantified… whatever. Stay with me… When I have a day off, I like to spend the morning by myself; I make a pot […]
