This Thanksgiving feels different…the love runs deeper, the need for connection to family and friends more intense. We look out our window and see that the world is a scary place, so we turn inward looking for comfort from the people, places, and traditions we hold most dear.

With the recent passing of Maya Angelou, one of America’s greatest poets, along with my own modest success of having a poem published in the New York Times, brought forth the idea to have a poetry contest of our own. No matter how many forms your creativity takes, from cutting edge leadership to great cooking, writing down your thoughts and observations can free your mind to fly. I believe there is a poet in all of us. So dust off that old journal that’s stashed in a drawer, and get writing. The world is waiting to read your thoughts!

The story of Christmas is about so many things; faith, kindness, and the triumph of the spirit even in the poorest of conditions. So is the story of saving Star…and in the process, saving ourselves. Super storm Sandy was on her way; the weather maps showed her imminent approach. To ease my concern, I scrolled […]

After a longer than anticipated hiatus from blogging, it feels good to be back in the computer chair and filled with thoughts to share. This new incarnation of Perspectives represents a long-held theory of mine that in life you can have it all, just not all at the same time: Life is a series of […]
