QUOTES:

If I am not within, I am without.

I was much too far out all my life
And not waving, but drowning.
Stevie Smith

It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.

New Additions:

  • The Social Life of Information by John Seely Brown and Paul Duguid.  Loved the title; Loved the book; but it wasn't an easy read.  Warning: the page loads slowly due to the graphics.
  • We are very pleased to know that our material on Body Language comes up consistently in the top three of NorthernLight Search Engine and appears to be in the top 100 of some other major search engines - Google for one. I am also thinking of starting a new weekly short e-zine similar to Cybertips, mentioned below, with the subject matter of communications - specifically Body Language.  I would appreciate you thoughts on this.
  • I get lots of other e-zines.  One that I particularly enjoy is Cybertips.  They have different topics and can be set for daily of weekly. Check them out below and I recommend trying one out.  Travel, motivation, and career are three topics that I have enjoyed on and off over the past year.

  • just being

  2. Imagine just one thing that you could do on a regular basis that would feed your soul.

  3. List three activities or persons that drain energy and draw the focus away from you ability to live the life that you desire.

  4. Think about your primary needs and imagine a new and healthy way to meet one of them.

  5. Create a dream list of ten things that you want to do or see in your life time.

  6. Looking at your answers above, what action can you take this month?  This week?  This day?  Right now?
