This I believe
I believe that the world is complex and diverse, far beyond anything I can imagine. I respect and celebrate, and experience fear and awe when I contemplate the diversity of life from the mysterious to the mundane – from category five hurricanes to life’s daily responsibilities. Kiss – the acronym – “Keep It Simple Stupid” is a useful tool to deal with my challenges of time, geography, and knowledge. But I don’t let it become my attitude – everyday, if I am lucky, I can learn something new, see something different, open my eyes to a fresh point of view. Believing in life’s diversity and complexity creates a sense of celebration and adventure that I wake up to every single day.
