The Foundation of Our Work

If we look at this, we know that a foundation is informative of what we create over the course of our life. That these beliefs and experiences […]

A Life Without Problems

Most things aren’t problems unless we make them so. Unfortunately, we make problems of most things. Over the past 2 years, possibly 4, or possibly since I was born, I have been on a journey to remove problems from my life. It would be safe to say that this way of living is common. That […]

Misc. Reader Replies (March)

Re: Friday Coffee, Austin I lived in Austin for 3 1/2 years. “Lived” is a misnomer though. I was working about 70 hours/wk. One of my favorite places in all of Austin is the park trails on the southwest side that go all the way out to the lakes (can’t member the name of the […]

Friday Coffee, Austin

Hey and hello from Austin, Texas, Ya’ll. I’m writing from a cafe downtown after a bit of a walk around Congress. Last night I was treated to the food scene here.

Member Question: Since so much is limited by the budget of local businesses we work with, I’m feeling like my growth has stalled out. And I’m also questioning if I want to stay in web design or pursue something where I get to interact with humans more. (Maybe video storytelling?) Any suggestions or encouragement for […]

Inhale… Enjoy this moment. Somewhere something you’re doing is going well. The bed you lay down in is warm and comfy. Your tea is perfect. You step outside and feel the sun. At this moment things are good. Exhale… A problem or obstacle is coming. Of this I’m sure. We can simultaneously see what’s good, […]
