Celebration or Crisis? A choice each of us gets to make.

 

It’s currently incomprehensible that a single day could begin without private, quiet contemplative time before the sun comes up.

Repetition of keywords is a leadership proposition if you want Google page rank. Google page rank is needed if you want to reach your audience – say, 1.2 million male Baby Boomers.
