The Potential of the Human Spirit

  Have you ever been in just the right place at just the right time so as to witness a moment that allowed you to see the potential of the human spirit?   I have experienced one of those moments, and as […]

If You Want a Meaningful Answer, Ask the Right Question

  I recently filled out a questionnaire that was sent to me in response to an online job application I filled out.   I have this thing about questions.  The answers are only as useful as the questions are appropriate.   For […]

It’s All Just Outside My Window

  I’m on my third topic for this post today.  I just couldn’t get into anything I thought of writing about.  My eyes keep wandering to the goings on outside my window.   There’s a big ash tree stripped of all its […]

  I don’t know if you noticed or not, but I didn’t post anything last week.  I was having a little crisis and, as an introvert, I have the need to go inside myself for a while to make things make sense.  […]

The Story of Home
