America's Greece.

Apparently balancing a checkbook is hard. Puerto Rico owes creditors $72 billion in the coming weeks. Yesterday, the governor said the debt is “not payable.”

MEDIA BREAK
Eliminating the Internet and TV news can and will help anyone with anxiety and sense of hopelessness, when you feel like there is "nothing real left to believe in."
Eliminating exposure to regular bad news, regardless of whether true and real or not, that you have no control over, can be surprisingly calming and uplifting.
Just do it, my dear!_

Greece has ordered all of the country’s banks to stay closed this week. This is not a drill.

Greece hasn’t had money for a while. A few years ago, creditors bailed it out with billions of dollars. And tomorrow is supposed to be payback day for a part of that bailout. For months, Greece has been trying to get the deadline pushed back, but creditors have said ‘nope.’ Meanwhile, the European Central Bank  has been helping Greece keep its banks open. But over the weekend bailout talks broke down. And yesterday, the ECB said ‘we’re cutting you off.’ Cue Greeks sprinting to the ATM to take out cash while they can.


This is Greece on the verge of a financial meltdown: the prime minister has closed all banks, the stock market, and put restrictions on withdrawal amounts. If Greece can’t reach a deal with creditors by tomorrow, it could be forced to exit the eurozone. Which could have a not-so-pleasant ripple effect on the global economy.

AWE some!
 
Finding Awe in everyday life 
“We have a responsibility to awe.” That's the message that filmmaker and philosopher Jason Silva wants to convey in this video about the capacity of the human mind to be stimulated, inspired and to experience wonder.

Walking off into the Sunset...
Introduction
  • I am... 
  • I am fiercely private.  
  • I am fiercely loyal.   
  • I am an elitist and an epicure.  
  • I am an epicurean elitist.  
  • I am compulsive about everything I think, feel, say and do.  
  • I am a photographer without a camera.  
  • I am a painter without a brush.  
  • I am a musician without an instrument.  
  • I am a deceptively keen listener and observer.  
  • I shall not judge...I don't hold a gavel.  
  • I shall never censor myself just to comfort one's ignorance and intolerance.  
  • I shall not debate what is not debatable.  
  • I shall not talk unless I have something substantive to say, and even then, only I choose if, or when, to say it...and to whom.
  • I shall write, post and share any new and original content almost exclusively to a private and very limited circle(s).
  • I shall only post and re-share publicly mainstream content of my choice.
  • I show up.  
  • I question...   
  • I do...   
  • I make...   
  • I share...  

Daniel Patrick Moynihan once said that "we are entitled to our own opinions, but we are not entitled to our own facts." However, too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.  
We should always feel compelled to identify that many issues in any debate are not actually debatable, but rather easily known facts. Too many people are simply denying the obvious.

"Before deciding to share publicly our thoughts and opinions, we need the kind of objectivity that makes us forget everything we have heard and read, clear the table, and do a factual study like any scientist would."   

"Truth is truth even if no one believes it. A lie is a lie even if everyone believes it." 

"No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar."  - Abraham Lincoln  

"All successful people are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose."    

"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated failures. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."  - Calvin Coolidge
