Are You Giving Your Power Away?

Recently I had posed a question on Facebook to engage a bit of conversation. The question was, “Why does there always seem to be a struggle between knowledge and power?” – ie: why can’t these two play nicely with each other?

I find that these two entities play a role in every aspect of life, . . . → Read More: Are You Giving Your Power Away?

Two Entries in One – Help the Butterflies?

Ok, that’s just confusing.

Firstly, The Help, the new movie based on the book. Absolutely, fantastic! Definitely an Oscar contender this year.
