It’s been just over a year since I published my first book, about the respective difficult upbringings of father & son in two vastly different generations. Today is Father’s Day, a good time to reflect. Indeed, lots relevant to the book has happened in 365 days.
Rarely have I seen a show as capable as dividing audiences as Twin Peaks, and the same is true of its director, David Lynch. Now that it’s back on Showtime, the question of why is ripe for discussion.
Every so often, I have to take a break from artistic activities and crazy theorizing, and absorb myself in something, like a good book, tv show or movie. They can be useful tools to help us see difficult matters in our lives from a new perspective.
Let’s put aside for a moment, any debate over what exactly the term “spirit” entails. If you practice prayer or meditation, seek the guidance of a higher power, or even just greater inspiration in your life, you might find some interesting suggestions within.
We tend to think of the business of day to day life in simple terms. We sleep, wake up, eat, go to work or school, exercise, and maybe get stressed out here and there. All of this can be approached in a perhaps more useful way – by looking at all of life as brainwaves.
Time for this blog to get sciencey: If you work for many hours a day at a PC (or Mac), this post is for you. Recently, I dealt with a skin cancer diagnosis. After months of investigation, I would like to share some findings as well as advice on what you can do to protect your health, without compromising your productivity.
This is the kind of post I quite honestly hope I never have to write again. It’s not an attempt to scare anybody or stress anyone out. On the contrary, a little knowledge is an important step to long term security.
There is currently much hoopla over human-influenced climate change, leading to sweeping changes in policy and outright bans. Some of these new policies however, directly threaten traditions thousands of years old. Good traditions.
Many big anniversaries are happening this year. Canada’s 150th, Finland’s 100th, the NHL & Toronto Maple Leafs’ 100th, respectively. The theme of Finland’s is “Together”. What do I know of togetherness? I’m a pretty isolated person.
You know Waldo… that quiet guy that’s always skulking about, just daring you to spot him in a crowd? Well, we Finns are kind of like that – only, with the media.
