Who’s that Judgey Man in the Window? Woof Woof

My opinion of what God might be....from a non-religious perspective....

He is always watching and judging... Continue Reading →

Why The Worshipping of Hard Workers Might Be Dangerous

I've been talking with my friend  who is visiting from Japan. He told me that he works 6-7 days a week at his job. He gets vacation time and he goes either to Germany or the US. This time he's in the US. He told me that even though he has vacation time, he still... Continue Reading →


.....and how our culture might be inadvertently contributing to narcissism... In the old paradigm, we were taught that any form of self-flattery is egotistical.
