New Year! That was fast—2018 has Ended and 2019 has Begun! With every Ending, we arrive at a new Beginning. And “a good Beginning makes a good End,”
(English Proverb). Every new year becomes a moment for us to reflect on last
year’s journey and project on the new journey we will embark upon—after all, it
is about the journey and not the destination.
Have you done your reflections and projections? Those who hope are those who change the
world. “All our dreams can come true, if
we have the courage to pursue them,” (Walt Disney). Thoughts reap actions and a plan anchors our
do reap what we sow. Every action has an
equal reaction. Each of our lives is
delicately woven together from each cause to each effect—like a river. Beginning to take more accountability moves
us from being the effect to becoming the cause of our lives.

the present,” (Bill Keane). Time is precious. The present is only a split second of Time.
Time really is but a
measurement of Change. And with every passing year, Time seems to go by more
quickly—perhaps because each additional year is a smaller portion of our
lives. When we were five, one year was 1/5th
of our entire lives! Now, one year is a
much smaller fraction of our lives—we shall not go into specifics with how much

Be thankful and merry for “a merry heart is like good medicine,”
(Proverbs). You are the pilot of your
life. May 2019 be fruitful and merry for
you, your family and friends. Sow those
good seeds, water them, and reap their fruits.

Donald Trump’s Presidential victory early this morning continues recent countries sway towards populist and more nationalistic governments. When we perceive disorder from immigration policies and overseas conflicts, our natural tendencies are to be more cautious of opening up more to the world (i.e. trade policies, international agreements, immigration, etc.). This is normal and to be expected.
Instead of our normal astonishment, let’s place this morning’s Presidential victory in greater context:
America is much greater than any one President. We have immensely strong institutions with many checks and balances. America’s economy, which directly affects the Stock Market, is based on our businesses—not the government. America has the most creative, innovative, and diverse economy of the world—the world envies our amazing productive capability.
And America has had the best developed economy since the 2008 Great Recession.
America’s government—including Trump—knows our businesses are our Golden Goose. Our tax revenue, jobs, standard-of-living, and energy come from our businesses—therefore, it’s in our government’s best interest to foster our businesses. Even now, it would be very unwise to bet against America—always has been.
In just our recent history, our economy has persevered through the Brexit vote, the Fiscal Cliff ordeal, the Debt Ceiling debacle, and the worst Financial Crisis since 1930. Through all of these recent setbacks, the US Stock Market—after receding—moved upwardly again. However, because Trump is somewhat an unknown variable to the world, we do expect Markets to be volatile for a period of time but they will rise again. Also, since the Republican Party retained control of Congress, the potential of meaningful legislative change has greatly increased. Tax Reform—including Repatriation of Foreign Profits—and ObamaCare improvements are greatly needed. Should any bill make it through both the House and Senate, it’s likely to be fairly moderate and appropriate.
True Art is unbridled individual expressions free from any exogenous biases – so long as the expression was indeed TRUE to the individual and not done solely for monetary gains.
If True Art gains attention by the people, it should always be allowed to be expressed. Art reveals the problems and issues of our society, and Art also conveys many solutions for societies – we just need to pay attention and listen to understand.
“In a decaying society, Art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it” ~ Ernst Fischer
All our great presidents have been poetic – go to DC if you think otherwise. Art allows humans to be free, honest, transparent, and to express their deepest feelings and emotions.
We all are products of all the past human achievements (creation of language, ideology, information, science, education, societal system, and Art). Therefore, it would be wise for us to reflect upon this and be thankful for how good we have it today than yesterday.
Inevitably—during our life—we lose inspiration due to the monotony of daily living. We yearn for enlightenment but seldom obtain this broadening mindset in our ever-increasing busy lives. As we place greater focus on work and family, too often our perspectives become continuously narrower and narrower. We become more limited with our thoughts as we choose to surround ourselves with a smaller circle of people we ‘FEEL’ comfortable to be with. However, by limiting the people you spend your time with, you limit your mind’s potential. Many remedies exist to expand our thinking and avoid a debilitating myopic life. Experiencing a Live Event may be one of those best remedies to inspire and expand your way of thinking.
Almost everyone has at least one person (several people for the lucky ones) that they share their most intimate feelings and passions with. However, your overall understanding of others is still very limited from just the few like-minded people whom you know. To obtain a broader and more rounded perspective of others (and ultimately, yourself), seek avenues beyond your “Circle-of-Trust,” as Robert De Niro pertinently stated in ‘Meet the Parents.’ Some of the most powerful experiences to expand your perspective, passion, and inspiration are through a Live Event—music, comedy, theatre.
If you listen and observe closely, Artists and their performances reveal everything to you unvarnished. Musicians tell you their insecurities, their fears, and their dreams. Comedians tell you all their shortcomings with self-deprecating humor; and Live Theatre takes you for a ride to experience a wide-spectrum of emotions.
