Day 4: Let Go and Enjoy the Ride!

I know this sounds like a bit of a violent day but it was actually really peaceful and helped me to unwind. I started going to the gun range with my little brother last year as a compromise since he loved it so much and I...
Day 3: Decompress and Taste Life...an Apple a Day
I only set two goals for today and those were….. 1) Play in the rain and 2) Practice mindful eating The rain ended up passing us by so I did yard work instead because it was outside, physical and engaging.

Day 2: Step to the Right of My Left Brain

Now I have never...

dancing filaments of light
Science fiction writer William Gibson considers how our new communication networks look more and more like the superfine, delicate wirings of a mind… “…the texture of these more recent technologies, the grain of them, becomes progressively finer, progressively more divorced from Newtonian mechanics.

Is Branded Journalism Still Journalism? →
Interesting article about the roll of branded journalism. —The goal with branded content, explains social media expert Shel Holtz, isn’t necessarily to solicit profits, but to make companies visible, because these days, if your business doesn’t have content on the world wide web, you’re essentially invisible—even if you have a company website. Holtz says that branded content “isn’t trying...
