“If you leap the net will appear” ~John Burroughs.  This has been my self professed motto for as long as I can remember. The odds were against me. Book smarts lost. Street survival prevailed. The lack of parental supervision could have lead me down a dark and dreary path (and I was headed that way(…)

I know you’re there. Sneaking around as if sight unseen. Trying to whisper reminders as if they could sway me. Well I won’t return. Not even with the sound of your steps following on my heels. Breathing down my neck. Trying to capture me like a Polaroid. Time can’t allow it. It won’t stand still long enough. You had your chance.

Putting yourself out there is humbling. Hearing the truth is scary. We don’t know if what we have to say will resonate with everyone but not putting yourself out there seems scarier to me. I like being out on the limb. If you leap the net will appear. Like with anything we do, some people(…)

Emotional responses are at the core of our unconscious makeup. We are programmed, destined and wired to react in a way that is based on the stories we grew up in. Our interactions with people can significantly alter our state of consciousness if we don’t have a grasp on our own reality. The way we(…)

There can be no manipulating the meaning. The selfie has become the new view finder and the rat race of silicone valley sealed our fate. The human race is now tangled into the web like food. Nothing but prey. The consumer. A new breed of narcissist. A world consumed by the I syndrome and Hoover may have(…)
