The search

We are constantly on the search for the meaning of our time here.  Whether you realize it or not. That is always the undercurrent of all you do. The why. The how come. The search. The meaning. The purpose. The legacy. The impact. The comfort in knowing you meant something positive to someone. That you […]

The path

There is this choice. There are so many paths that we are confronted with in our life. Honest or not. Noble or not. Selfless or selfish. Self absorbed or altruistic. Professional or not.

The gentle moments

I sat alone at the Miami  restaurant table having a glass of wine. It was a quiet Miami night. The restaurant was just starting to come alive. The elderly man slowly walked in. He was struggling with each step but his two adult children were gently guiding him.  The staff clearly knew him and helped […]
