From the moment we take our first breath, we are thrust into a world of learning. Our parents tell us what’s good to touch; watching our every move with love and care, so we don’t come to harm. They pass on their feelings, beliefs, rules, and behaviors, and we rely on them to provide […] The post I’m an Expert….…So are you! appeared first on Francis J. Sha
There are many kinds of water. The gentle flowing rivers that carve a path through the landscape—the soft rumblings of the lakes—the frozen formations sparkling in a winter chill. There is the water that refreshes on a scorching hot day and the gentle rain that feeds life. Water that cleans, purifies, and cleanses, washing away […] The post Finding Your High
We are a searching people. Attracted to the mystery of the rare, we dig ever deeper into the earth to bring forth treasures that sparkle and shine.

Since the earliest times we have been searchers. Beginning with the daily quest for food, clothing and shelter, our forbearers must have marveled at all they encountered. Perhaps it was in a cave long ago, flint or twigs created the first spark, and the new magic of fire kept them warm. I like to think […] The post Stories and the Placebo Effect appeared fir
