I welcome your comments, suggestions, and your stories. I moderate all comments so nothing will be approved for public viewing if you prefer to remain anonymous, or if you prefer only to communicate with me. That being said, “a lone primate is a dead primate”. We will go much further if we go together. So, if you can contribute something edifying, enlightening, encouraging, or if you are in need yourself, then please do gather at the forum. I want to hear from you, and I’ll bet that others do, too. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The point is that they help us think differently, see the world or ourselves differently, or edify us so that we find our fire which generates new internal energy to keep growing and moving ahead.
