  • What Does It Mean to Be Spiritual? Dr. Harold Koenig, a physician at Duke University and an international authority on spirituality and health, tells us that spirituality is the “personal quest for understanding answers to the ultimate questions about life, about meaning, and about relationship to the transcendent. ” What is particularly appealing about this definition is that he believes it is a quest ...
  • The Art of Light Beginning in the 1920s and into the next few decades, Thomas Wilfred was something of an art-world star, having fused modern art and pre-digital technology to create his luminous works. Name doesn’t ring a bell? That’s all about to change. Born in Denmark in 1889, Wilfred pioneered an art of light he described as “radiant form in dark ...

  • Will Cash Disappear? I worked last week with a major credit card company, and one topic was whether cash will disappear.  Will there come a day when all transactions are electronic, perhaps using your smart phone–or even, say, just your fingerprint–and cash will be kept only in museums? Some countries are almost there–in Sweden, for example, half the banks ...
  • Reprint of “Heroes of the Vietnam Generation” This article by Jim Webb was published in July/August 2000 by the American Enterprise Institute. The rapidly disappearing cohort of Americans that endured the Great Depression and then fought World War II is receiving quite a send-off from the leading lights of the so-called ’60s generation. Tom Brokaw has published two oral histories of “The Greatest ...
  • Avoiding Isolation In Our Elder Years The term isolation implies alone-ness. Sometimes that’s a chosen situation.  Authors often need to be alone to do their writing.  People who paint or draw talk about their creative abilities being at their best when they are alone with their thoughts, feelings or what they are viewing at the moment.  There are many kinds of ...
  • Puppy Power Those who know me know that I am both a National Parks supporter and a dog enthusiast. As such, a friend and colleague was eager to share photos of her newly adopted puppy.
