October 22     Canine Comprehension   I wonder what it is that the dog knows.  True love, quantum physics, the ratio of lift to thrust required to make the ball fly, how food shared from my plate is better than food from her bowl.  This begs the next question.  What do...

Recently I heard of several women in their early 40s who grew weary of the business world and decided to go back to school and study nursing. They felt an urge to make a difference and to do a meaningful work. Hospitals in Israel offer today a shortened nursing course for university graduates in...

  When we obtain knowledge, either by reading, a lecture or from a conversation, it is much like a check. For indeed, with a check, you are in custody of the money, yet it exists in limbo, for until you correctly deposit the check and begin to use the funds, to pay bills (knowledge deficits)...

I don't make any of this up, you know. In an effort to appear intelligent and learned, one trick used by a surprisingly large percentage of people is to lie about the "classic" books they have read. And, I would say, this list does consist of books which most contemporary readers have heard about....

There's something about the city lights, staring up at them, watching the snowflakes fall beneath the shimmer, a glistening of falling hope. It makes you feel faith slipping from your fingertips, the intricate prints intertwining with lost identity. There's something about the nightly walks I take...

Knowledge is not the rare gem it used to be. Then again, without recording, analysing, sorting, summarising, calculating and disseminating mega quantities of data we’d have none of our ingenious toys to play with. Without statistics our systems would grind to a halt, and, yes, it’s annoying that...

I'll take the guess that most of the people who read this have travelled in a plane. I'll also take the guess that this makes us a minority, as compared to the general population of the world. I'm sitting in a too hot room, a continent away and in a different country. In a mixture of real time and...

I’m lucky. I feel lucky today, with sun streaming to one side of me, radiating onto my hand as it meanders across this page, and over my cheek and the slightly exposed skin of my neck. My heavy, dark coat rimmed in faux fur, covers the rest of me and my side bathed by the sun is toasting to slowly...

Knowledge could probably be ignorance masked. I tend to analyse a bit too much, often finding meaning where there is none. Interpretation is fine, but what if it is a real interaction and one is enlightened only to realise the intent was far from it? Is enlightenment a way by which we affirm...

Went off on co-workers yesterday.  Did the same yesterday.  Not very professional of me. It was minor.  Others might not consider it going off.  There were three incidents involving my expertise and the things I do to enable others to do their things.  It's a big...
