Only one Boss [Dec 31, 2009]

We get to do our own thing - kinda [Jan 3, 2010]

Keeping life in perspective [Jan 19, 2010]
"One of the most important things I can do for both myself and others is to pay attention. Why? For me, it gets me out of my own little corner of the world, reminds me that I ain't the do-all end-all. For whomever I interact with - it tells them they are not alone."

Out of the mouth of babes... [Jun 19, 2010]
