One of those awkward photos that nobody wants to see because we ask, "how are you," and expect to hear, "I'm fine."

Sometimes we have to show ourselves that, no matter how jaded we may be, we are still subject to pain and we are vulnerable creatures...,
Dad's bone scan came back (stage IV cancer). Despite our dysfunction, I am very close to my family and I am not willing to accept his death in the near future. This was at the beginning. Now I prefer the hazy state of denial. I am not prescribed fentanyl like my dad, but my head has a way of bring able to mask this pain.

“As a leader... I have always endeavored to listen to what each and every person in a discussion had to say before venturing my own opinion. Oftentimes, my own opinion will simply represent a con-sensus of what I heard in the discussion. I always remember the axiom: a leader is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind.”
