Profile Information

In regard to the life and work of Mahatma Gandhi I am a / we are an
just interested, others (see below)
About me / us
I am fifty-two, worked in many fields, studied many more. I am a writer, artist, and strategic thinker with a unique twist of practicality and uncanny creativity. Expertise in research, design, creative problem solving, advertising, marketing management, political campaign management, industrial/retail sales.
My / our projects, events, campaigns, research, publications
Not much to say, most everything has been said by someone, somewhere, sometime. School never got in the way of my education and I am a strong proponent of deep understanding through reading comprehension and self-education. I believe I am a better helper than visionary leader. I can research the problem, create alternatives and figure out how to make it happen and organize the process. I know what I know and that isn't really much considering the scale of the whole. If you have an idea or a project and need help in working out the kinks... drop me an email and I will see what I can do to help.

Small is the New Big

Posted on January 24, 2009 at 22:07 0 Comments

I am at peace with myself when I just sit and let thoughts blow through my mind like wind through the trees. Sometimes my mind, unlike the trees, captures a thought and looks at it as if with a microscope. This morning the single thought of “big” struck me. “Big” is anything but single. What is a "Big Thing?" What are the "Big Things" people scurry about to change , address, or find a solution for?
