How clear is your mind?

As I write this, I am just a day away from leaving on my annual ride with my buddies to Sturgis, South Dakota. Sturgis is the largest motorcycle rally in the world. Thousands of bikers descend on this small South Dakota town every year for a week. We always ride, never trailer. Here’s why. The…

Peace on Earth?

The holiday season is here. Doesn’t feel very cheery, does it? The sentiment this time of year, regardless of the way you celebrate or whether you celebrate at all, is centered around the idea of peace. Let’s face it – you can’t really make a case for peace on earth at this point in human…

How do you manage your moods & emotions?
