Part of living is exploring the nature of life and the Universe. These are some of my observations. Most of what appears here are my reflections, but it is all informed by my experiences with countless other people. Enter here only when you have some time...these tend to be a tad long-winded.

This collection of essays is grouped around the theme of decision-making and creativity -- which is the general plan for this web-site.

We do not need to agree on these points in order to work together. I am constantly amazed at the quality of decision-making among people of differing opinions who are tolerant of each other's positions.
