Back in June, while I was in Los Angles, I took a visit to the Annenberg Space for Photography and saw the show “Generation Wealth” by Lauren Greenfield.  The show examines the influence of affluence, both locally and how it has influenced (and maybe we could say has even been exported to) other countries around […]

This is a philosophical statement.  It is intended to spark thinking and examining. Continuing from last week the conversation about money and value… and expanding this week to get interpersonal.  Let’s look at our relationships and at appreciation.

This is a philosophical statement. It is intended to spark thinking and examining. It is also a conversation about the context in which companies can operate, and the context in which they are currently operating. “How do we love all the children, of all species, for all time?” — William McDonough I’ve been thinking about […]

This is a philosophical statement. It is intended to spark thinking and examining. “Often people attempt to live their lives backwards, they try to have more things or more money in order to do more of what they want so that they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must […]
