The Indie Bookstore. Part II

We left off with a question: What went wrong? I'm almost embarrassed. Because looking back - how could I have been so stupid? That answer is embedded within years of therapy. Analysis: I was, if you read the article, "full of myself". I was over confident and under funded. Which my psych girl has observed … Continue reading The Indie Bookstore. Part II

Talk Therapy

How do you know what it is? Do you know if you're getting it? Is it effective? Those questions illustrate the value of the Health & Well-being Inventory (HWBI).

What Happened to Education?

What happened to education? is a great question. Certainly books have been written, and will be written (maybe), regarding answers. My answer is both simple and extremely complex.

Grocery shopping, etc. and so on

Went grocery shopping today (Tuesday, March 31, 2020). Day twenty (20) of the COVID-19 panic in the USA. I was a little apprehensive, given the news coverage; and also, some folk I follow here on WordPress.

Unemployment, skills, & the résumé

During this time of "shelter-in-place" and forced unemployment, why not take advantage and reflect upon your skills? And, prepare a résumé? Start sending them out, because this will end, and you'll want to "hit-the-ground-running". This is a great opportunity to reflect and refocus. Trust me.
