The Story of Bottled Water

Do we really think about where our bottled water comes from? Where do they get the water? What do they do with it? Is it as clean and healthy for us as we think it should be?

The healing art of listening

I enjoy listening to stories. There are over six billion unique stories playing out in the world but all are variations on the same themes. Screenwriters need not complain of lack of material for inspiration. Even at a young age, lending an ear to friends’ soliloquies of personal triumph or struggle (of young love or parental tyranny), was natural to me. I felt I was being helpful in some way.
