One Word That Gives You All You’ve Ever Wanted One of my favourite quotes has always been from Thucydides, a Greek historian from the fourth century B.C.  He said, “The Nation that makes a great distinction between its scholars and its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and…

I think everyone understands the importance of taking a break.  Getting out of the city.  Breathing in some new scenery.  But have you ever gone on vacation and returned just as stressed as the day you left?  Is psychological respite more than simply unplugging from our physical location?

In the dystopian novel “Brave New World,” Aldous Huxley describes a future where people are grown in pods, each person specifically farmed for a certain role in society.  It was suggested that you can manipulate a society as you manipulate machinery.  Throw a social program cog here, toss more education…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  Great.  One more dumb year older.  My balls are practically in a race to my ankles.  If I watch the lines on my face carefully enough, I can see a full-time crew at work digging them deeper.  Where did all my hair go?!  Wait—there it is….. I didn’t…

“I wish there was more to do in Fort McMurray.”  What an anthem for a bored city if I’ve ever heard one.  I’ve been hearing this since the day I arrived as a four-year-old with popsicle-stained hands.  I imagine it was said long before that, and it will probably continue…

There is a consuming, typhoon-like force behind charity that changes people.  How cliché is the story of the rich dude, who, lost in the meaninglessness of his wealth starts a charity, or donates large portions of it away?  Usually that requires some sort of deep introspection or mountaintop epiphany on…

The alarm clock goes off.  You reach over and throw that stupid, invasive, good for nothing black box crashing out the window where it gets run over by a dump truck, a sand truck and a stampede of wild elephants….  Wait, still dreaming... Beep! Beep! Beep!!  Dammit.
