The Abundance Factory

Each bodily function was carried out by a different mini “factory”. Eating food would be one of those discussed in polite company. (Some of the others, you just have to giggle and use your imagination) Anyway moving on… Your mind is a factory too. Some people squander the opportunity to innovate and create great things…

Doing what you were born to do

My dog is a golden retriever. That means he likes to fetch things. Obviously that’s not great news for the chickens in the garden. They object to being retrieved. I guess back in the mists of time, his ancestors were bred to fetch dead birds for hunters. But let’s be clear. That “skill” was simply…

The circus tent illusion…

There’s a big difference between being better and being different. Being better is the harder choice. Being a better bug means being bigger or faster than…

The habit myth

The dog wagged his tail. My son’s face lit up like a candle. This was a habit for life. What we call one trial learning. He was going to pet EVERY dog from now on. The instant habit was so ingrained that we had to be careful which dogs he approached. In fact, a friend…
