Perhaps when it comes to things in life– we should classify it as a toy or tool.

What if the opposite were true:
Abundance is the mother of invention.
Let me explore these ideas with you.[Read more…] about Entrepreneurship born from Superabundance, not Need/Necessity
There is no ultimate ‘truth’ — only varying degrees of “truthiness” (degrees of truth).[Read more…] about Truthiness
Perhaps it is our evolutionary advantage that we delight in visual change. Visual change in landscapes, our environment, our fashion, our cars, our objects, and the visual art works we consume and create![Read more…] about Why do we delight in visual change?

BASED ON A TRUE STORY by David Alan Harvey — a beautiful book concept that teaches us:
There are so many new, innovative ways we can produce books and interact with!

[Read more…] about STRENGTH.
