One of my degrees is in psychology, which has led me to be extremely skeptical about most psychological studies.

This one is an exception. I hold this to be true. Engage authentically with as many people as you can, at every opportunity, and the world will be a better place.

"And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love you make."

~ Lennon/McCartney

Of the three Cirque du Soleil extravaganzas I saw in as many days in Vegas last week, "The Beatles: Love" was the one that moved me the most.  This production cost over $125 million to stage, and every penny was visible on stage -- and audible, with six hand-tuned speakers in every seat-back.  Highly recommended.

After a long day in Vegas at the OAUG Collaborate '14 conference, I should be sleeping. Instead, I'm changing all of my passwords and resetting all of my devices. You should, too.

The NYT reports today that "The Bridges of Madison County" has taken out emergency loans to keep running.  This is both sad and astonishing.

This musical was the best new production that I saw in my recent trip to NYC.  Soaring music, delicate lyrical staging, and exquisite performances by Kelli O'Hara ("Nice Work if You Can Get It") and Steven Pasquale ("Rescue Me").  I was utterly enthralled.

Of the hundreds of live performances I've seen in the last year, this was the only musical that prompted me to purchase the cast recording in advance of its availability.

This is a work of tremendous power and beauty.  Catch it while you can!

Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.

Be kind.

Always.

"In Asian languages, the word for 'mind' and the word for 'heart' are same. So if you're not hearing mindfulness in some deep way as heartfulness, you're not really understanding it. Compassion and kindness towards oneself are intrinsically woven into it. You could think of mindfulness as wise and affectionate attention."

~ Jon Kabat-Zinn
