SILENCIO SILENCE

Silence is a great teacher. Listen and learn. There is no substitute for creative inspiration, knowledge, and stability that come from knowing how to connect your core of inner silence.

Staying quiet can bestow the ability to listen. Few do it well. Most only listen until it's time to speak.

Silence Brings Powerful Insights to Our Lives

History points to an unsuccessful protest in Albany, Georgia that actually helped #MLK Martin Luther King Jr. become a national leader.

Martin Luther King Jr. was a rising civil rights figure when he came to Albany, Georgia, in December 1961, keen to provide a shot in the arm to a desegregation movement that was gathering new steam.

More than being smart is required in this day and age and especially if you happen to work remotely, rely on a very high EQ.

Daily improvement is the strategy of making constant, incremental improvements each and every day in order to feel and achieve impressive long-term gains. While many see it as a short-term event, it is much more powerful when an entire workforce engages in daily improvement efforts and stays focused.

On the heels of a #NASA quietly stellar year, from the James Webb Space Telescope to the Perseverance rover comes this comedy.

My wife and I watched Netflix's Don't Look Up, from writer/director Adam McKay, of Network fame, which features a star-studded cast playing out a satire about the end of the world.

Resolutions are never kept and overrated, so we decided to offer our list of solutions for every possibility that may arise in 2022.

The pandemic may dominate global attention in 2022, along with the #USA Democracy struggling and the #Republican party race to the bottom with its continuing disgraceful actions.

Happiness starts with telling yourself the truth, even when it hurts.

Make sure you always have your own money.

Americans may wish to seriously consider canceling all their New Year’s plans: Omicron and Delta are coming to crash your party.

The problem is that The party will go on, because not enough of US care. Public health officials are warning party animals to stay on a short leash because #COVID is still out on the prowl and ready to howl.

Confucius was the first teacher in China who wanted to make education broadly available and was instrumental in establishing the art of teaching as a vocation. He also established ethical, moral, and social standards that formed the basis of a way of life known as Confucianism, which is not a religion, as much as it is a global philosophy.

Latinos make up over half of the USA population. This is reflected in larger cities, small towns, neighborhoods, and prairies.

Also, the culture and use of language are being woven into the American fabric and melting into a Spanglish mixed salad.

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through la casa,
Not a creature was stirring, I wondered, que pasa?

I was hanging the stockings with mucho cuidado,
In hopes that old Santa would feel obligado,

To bring all the children, both buenos y malos,
A nice batch of dulces and other regalos.
