The Bright Sides of Japan

The stunning majesty of our planet knows no bounds yet we face myriad boundaries that prevent us from experiencing these, at times, indescribable wonders.

Having been fortunate to have parents (shout-out to my amazing parents!) who prioritized traveling the globe in order to venture to various cultures around this floating marble, I am keen to discover new places, people, and wildlife whenever possible.

Even if I’m restrained to my laptop on a random Tuesday.

Happy 4th of July!

The story of the Declaration of Independence is one we must never forget.

It was this American imagination and grit that led to the founding of a nation–the United States of America–unlike any other in human history.

Happy 4th of July! 

Happy Monday!

Wow.

Well done, Sir Paul McCartney. And well done, James Corden.

Simply amazing!

Have a Better Week Than Last Week. 

Wow

Normally, the NFL Draft is a bit of an insider’s broadcast. After the first round selections, the repetition begins to overwhelm interest in watching—in effect—the NFL’s annual ‘Groundhog Day.’

That seemingly casual-looking walk is a wonderful showcase of the power of sports.

Pittsburgh Steeler and Ohio State Buckeye Ryan Shazier, who has been recovering from a spinal injury from last December, is living proof of the inspirational nature of the human spirit. Even writing the words “spinal injury” sends a paralyzing chill through one’s body. That pain and accompanying fear are unimaginable for anyone who has not experienced that kind of living hell.

Forget the draft picks, over-saturated analysis and the newly minted millionaires this year. If you remember one thing from the 2018 NFL Draft, remember Ryan Shazier for his movement off the football field.
