The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

A Very Powerful Video

I normally don't put news articles and such on my blog but a friend sent this to me.  
It is not only well done but quite disturbing and felt worth sharing.

  5. You might find this person interesting: Richard Epstein. He has some interesting thoughts on income inequality (at least I think he does). You can google him and find many other clips and articles.

  8. I think you could draw the same graph - more or less for Australia and the UK.

    Somewhere along the line we have got it wrong.

  9. I don't know what's gone in people lately. Here the top bankers and top managers are all snatching money for themselves. I am raised in a socialistic idealistic family, wanting everybody had equal chances.
    But I am horrified how things are changing at the moment.
