Cuba Today – Part I

December 13th, 2015

My fellow boomers are likely to sympathize with me on this one. No I did not take the best of notes on my trip. I have a bad memory and it is now 3 months later. I need you to cut me a little slack. So I knew some of … Continue reading

Cuba Today – Part ll

December 12th, 2015

Cuban Propaganda – I don’t think so. The Average Cuban person has few worries but also few opportunities to change their station in life. Socialism is tough but Cubans get free housing, free healthcare, and free education. Their biggest expense is food which is subsidized. Cuba has apparently some great … Continue reading

Audio Books

March 14th, 2015

In my January 2015 post, I identify two Joseph Campbell audio books I listen to – all the time. Another audiobook I recently enjoyed listening to was The Power of Vulnerability: Teachings of Authenticity, Connection & Courage.

I hardly ever sit in a window seat on a plane. As I was watching the landscape as we descended it occurred to me to pull together a type of Glass montage. Here it is.          

Lobstermen and Blueberry Farmers

September 11th, 2013

What do these two seemingly unrelated groups have in common?  Very fortunately and personally for me, they represent a group of 162 people that I had the privilege of helping to create business and career plans with for 2 ½ years from April 2011 –August 2013.  For many reasons, this … Continue reading
