Welcome to the new and revised

The old site was essentially a bunch of re-hashed rss feeds from my other sites.  As such, I am going to re-start and put some blogging effort into this site to make it interesting and worthwhile of your time.

I will be blogging on various topics, including:

  • Explore:  How to enhance our humanity and spirit
  • Learn:  How to expand our Minds
  • Grow: Discover how to be fitter and healthier
As this is a new direction, I’m not entirely sure where it will go, but it is my goal that all the articles here will be engaging, thought provoking, inspiring and in some way motivate people to do or be something a little different than where they are now.   Please join me in this exploration.  Follow me on Twitter or Google+ or Facebook.
If you like the posts, please do just that, “like” the posts.
