Road Rage

The subject of road rage is on my mind because I witnessed an incident of it during a recent trip to Los Angeles and when I returned, a client presented with some big consequences for his episode.  As we all know, these outbursts remain common despite stronger laws in many areas, resulting in harsher punishment […]

My Own Wholeness

As Whole Man Expo has been widely publicized (especially in the Front Range of Colorado), I would both hope and suspect that many people have wondered, “how do I measure up as a whole person?”  I regard this as a much more substantive and meaningful question than wondering how one measures up in terms of […]

Pickles, Prunes and Papas

After chuckling at the Pickles comic strip (by Brian Crane) in the Sunday, April  10, 2011 edition of the Denver Post, I immediately knew that I had blog material.  In that comic an elderly man is informing his young grandson that prunes are actually dried plums, just as raisins are merely dried-up grapes.  His grandson […]
