HELLO SPRING

When the Julian calendar was established around 45 BC, a date in March was fixed for the vernal equinox, that time and moment in the Spring when night and day are of equal length. It has to do with the tilt of the earth toward the sun and at this time it’s approximately zero. For

AUTOMATED AND FLAWED

Recent experiences with a variety of corporate customer service operations have convinced me that we have been marginalized and dehumanized by the move to an impersonal, inhumane and mechanized system.  Not only does this process move us further away from real, personal connections but it also confirms that we are identified not as human beings

CHANGE TIME

I may be a day “late” for this blog but wait!  If I don’t believe in being “on time” then I can’t be “”late.”  The truth is that I may be a little obsessive about being on time as I value other people’s time and honoring a commitment that is set for a certain day

WHAT DO YOU DO?

For many years, when I traveled frequently for work, I had the familiar experience of meeting a stranger, often on an airplane or in an airport, hotel or other some other travel related location.  One of the first questions that seemed to be put forward often was, “What do you do?” My response, somewhat automatic,

SPIRIT HEALTH

For whatever reason, the Greek word pneuma (πνεῦμα) came into my mind one morning recently on awakening.  You will recognize the English words pneumatic and pneumonia both of which have to do with air.  Pneumatic tools are driven by compressed air and pneumonia is characterized by infected lungs thus affecting our ability to breathe.  Pneuma

ON THE ROAD – Costa Rica Part Two

Leaving the beach in Tamarindo, we drove via Liberia, past the Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR), smaller than San Jose, Juan Santa Maria (SJO) and more accessible to the northern sections of Costa Rica. We connected onto Rt. 1, traveled south to Canas, then north around Lake Arenal to Fortuna and Arenal Springs.  If
