Has anyone else noticed their stack of 3×5’s changing right before their eyes? As simple a tool as these cards are, I have found them to be of the most profound influences I have felt, not to diminish at all the other top drawer resources we have received.
I was excited to feel the difference taking those few moments to review and read the cards we were asked to create to remind ourselves of things we had experienced and accomplished in our lives. It became a source of strength to realize that my life has not been without purpose and significant opportunities, to be able to have helped others and just generally discover that I’m in fact not a total putz.

Had the opportunity to share an original piece of music with James Twyman who is mounting a peace effort into Syria.

Take a look if you like.
Hope you all have an excellent week!
