Vacation Time
Back At It

Start Your Engines

We're just back home from our trip -- slightly jet lagged and certainly sluggish.  That makes today a Super Monday.  Today it is really time to . . . 


On Mondays, I share things I've collected over the weekend . . . to get the week off to a good start.


A Quote

"And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it's a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end."  
--- Pico Iyer

To Read


I like to think of myself as an open-minded person.  But after reading this essay in the Washington Post over the weekend, I can see that, well . . . it's a bit more complicated than that.  I think the essay is fascinating -- and especially given that I've been thinking about polymaths already, since it seems that polymaths may tend toward more open-minded thinking.

What do you think?


A Challenge

Be curious.
Challenge your own thinking. 
Use "however" more than "moreover."


I hope your week is off to a good start.  I'm looking forward to catching up with all of you again!
