DON’T LISTEN TO DON’T…Winnegrad

                                            Before Jim Brown was a Hall of Fame player for the Cleveland Browns he played lacrosse for Syracuse University making the All-American team. I was a freshman at Syracuse and he was a senior. One day there was an inter-squad game. The freshmen against the varsity. There was a […]

TWO SOCKS…Winnegrad

                                                 TWO PAIRS OF SOCKS were given to me 42 years ago. I was very touched with the unexpected gift. So I didn’t know which pair to wear first to work. So, being me, I wore one sock from each pair to show that I had no preference. At work […]

FINDING A RESOLUTION…Winnegrad

                                              When I was training a student several years ago, he was having a problem to FIND A RESOLUTION to his particular situation. He told me his mind was cluttered up, he could not think clearly. The office was in New York City. I brought him to the window and […]

YOU HAVE A CHOICE…Winnegrad

                                                  TO HAVE A CHOICE means that you have options. So WHEN YOU FEEL THAT YOUR GLASS IS “HALF EMPTY,” THEN PUT IT IN A SMALLER GLASS. You then will have a “full glass.” Thinking hard on the power to choose you will find the right tool to carry you […]

THERE IS A VOID…J.Abumrad, Winnegrad

                                    THERE IS A VOID, an unknowing, an emptiness, out there facing everyone. That VOID is called tomorrow. What will happen tomorrow? What will happen the day after tomorrow? The thought that may come to you is what will I do? What follows tomorrow, is LIFE. Nothing is unavoidable. Everyday […]

Yes, what matters more for your life is a better look at nature and how it helps trees, plants and animals to survive. Hermann Hesse found out that when trees are left to themselves they […]

IT TAKES LITTLE EFFORT…Winnegrad

                                               Most people seek acceptance, respect, trust, brotherhood, sisterhood from others. It is a most natural desire. To do this we must open our perspective on life. As we do when we read a book,  go to a museum, as we walk in nature, all these are pleasing to the mind […]

THE WIND…Winnegrad

                                                         I absolutely value my friendship, relationship with the Chief, his wife, his family and the rest of the Haudenosaunee (people of the Iroquois). The values that I possess as a Human is because of my stay with them from the time I was a teenager. The Chief, as some […]

DO NOT RUSH TO THE FUTURE…M.Popova, Winnegrad

                              Seneca said; “nothing is ours, except time.” Time is what we are. With a full living in the present, each day we must cherish the LITTLE JOYS OF LIFE. We must be more attentive and appreciative of the present. Happiness begets happiness. We have to keep our sight on […]

LET’S LEARN TO LIVE TOGETHER…Winnegrad

                                  “WE MUST LEARN TO LIVE TOGETHER AS BROTHERS AND SISTERS OR PERISH TOGETHER AS FOOLS,” said M.L.King Jr. Living with hate or contempt takes more energy than living with LOVE. It is necessary to speak up in a LOVING and CARING way. Nobody cares on how much you know, […]
