How did you learn that the world economy was suddenly locking down at lightning speed? How did you find out about “shelter in place?” What was your reaction when you saw restaurants and stores close down and streets emptying? What were you thinking? How did you react? What’s the date? When did it all begin? The lockdown date that the US seems to be settling on March 15th as the beginning of the lockdown. It is the date that will go into history books. This[…]Continue Reading.
Working remotely from home in a pandemic–with technology that doesn’t always work–can be tough. It can make days that glom together seem like a long, never ending slog. It can feel like rowing a kayak down a fast moving river through white rapids–with a broken broom stick. It takes a new agility, moving into waters where we’ve never been before. When I think of agility I think of Shaquille O’Neal. He had an unheard of physique for a professional basketball player, totally unsuited for the game. […]Read More

Have you declared your intention to slice up your Facebook account into a billion cyber-pieces–to leave and never return?

It’s a social media caste system of the self-appointed[…]Read More
Carol and I still walk 20+ miles with our puppies each week through downtown, and it’s strange to pass by closed stores and offices–on a walk with no destination leading to nowhere. It’s really weird, isn’t it, to see the news coverage of major cities with empty downtown streets with nobody moving around? Everyone is thinking, “When and how will this end?”: Is this the End of the World? Several decades ago I read the iconic 1949 sci-fi novel, Earth Abides, by George R. Stewart. The main[…]Read More
Who do you want on your team? There is no more fundamental question. That’s the question the NFL, the military, business, and every group asks that wants to get something done.
