Have Fun With That!

Yesterday, someone asked how to find your life purpose. For me, it’s pretty simple. I’m here to do what comes naturally, to do what I love. Everything that comes out of that, is a part of my purpose.  No one will do it exactly like me. Take musicians, for instance. If...

Need a Change? Create Space for It.

Today, when I opened my cupboard to grab a mug, I noticed them on the top shelf: my high-end drinking glasses; red wine goblets, thinner, white wine glasses, brandy snifters, tall iced tea glasses, short tumblers. Eight of each. When was the last time they were used?...
