The Nonobvious Obvious

The Nonobvious Obvious

I often make the mistake of thinking that something that is obvious to me is just as obvious to everyone. ~Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Americans, in a general sense, live within the experience of a single crop farm. We are corn sucking the same nutrients out of the ground, all growing straight and tall producing the […]

Celebrate Weirdness

Celebrate Weirdness

I’m not strange, weird, off, nor crazy. My reality is just different than yours. ~Lewis Carroll Truth is, we are all strange, weird, off, and crazy.

Peace is always beautiful. ~Walt Whitman Peace on earth and goodwill to men, a phrase spoken during the holiday season in the West.
