♫ The Script – Hall of Fame ft. Will.i.am. ♫
With the latest Facebook scandal, I am even more urgent about our use of neuroscience for leadership – not just sales. Deeply concerned that we need to strengthen our internal resolve in the midst of all the analytics & marketing. I hope this curation of #influence contributes to your longview imprint. Afterall, every “like” and every RT is autobiographical.

I have written very publicly that I was estranged from my own father. I was very angry with him when he died in a car accident when he was only 44 years old. It has taken much therapy, prayer and grace for me to forgive myself as in some grandiose way I had felt that perhaps my anger had killed him.

America – Walt Whitman
Centre of equal daughters, equal sons,
All, all alike endear’d, grown, ungrown, young or old,
Strong, ample, fair, enduring, capable, rich,
Perennial with the Earth, with Freedom, Law and Love,
A grand, sane, towering, seated Mother,
Chair’d in the adamant of Time.

Happy Mother’s Day to all my lovely community!

Regardless of the faith you practice – may this Spring season offer a new season of growth, discovery, and beauty. If my understanding of Easter could be captured in an image this statue says it all.
