The Carefree Days

I remember what it was like to be young.  I remember how those summer days felt.  The smell of fresh cut grass and a newly mown field.  Looking back on it, I realize the world wasn't carefree at all. The world had just come out of World War II.  The … [Read more...]

ADD Reading The Norm

These days it seems very few people actually read. They scan, they pick out a few words, they skip to the end, but they don't read. I know this because I send a lot of emails which answer very specific questions. In response I  get an email asking another … [Read more...]
