OpportunitiesFrom Obstacles The secret in life is to make every obstacle into an opportunity. Clarence Seedorf  I am quite fond of the word and concept of opportunity.  And with an increasing amount of time on this planet, the way it operates alongside obstacles can’t be ignored in my opinion.  I...
 Perhaps It's Pugilistic Pondering. . .  Surprise! Surprise! I make no claims of being a prize fighter. Most of the bouts I battle are with myself.  And outside any competitive arena.  That's likely true for most of us of us as stern self-talks, discussions within our own mind and other memorable...

 Midweek Musing - Knowledge, Wisdom, Words And Wednesdays. . .  Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.  Jimi Hendrix   I have long shared my appreciation of quotes.  And I know many ActiveRain members have also served up their choices in posts in various ways.     Words matter.  They can make a di...
 Making A DifferenceAnd Why Not. . .  I actually think that the most efficacious way of making a difference is to lead through example and doing random acts of kindness is setting a good example of how to behave in the world.  Misha Collins  Who could disagree, right? The word efficacious was not...
 InterconnectednessIn All Sorts Of Ways. . . The word and concept of interconnectedness has long fascinated me.  Not so much as a matter (no pun intended) of science but in general.   Things seem to come together in odd yet almost amazing ways at times.  Some simultaneously and others quite rando...
