Getting Acquainted With Stirling

I’ve been on the road again. It’s a place i’ve been before, but it’s like i’m seeing it for the first time. I’m back in Stirling, a very historic Scottish city, about 36 miles northwest of Edinburgh.

LIVE Music Scene in Stirling

Well so far this week I have managed to get out and about and take in some of the LIVE music in Stirling.  Monday night, it was Nicky Tams where I saw a Scottish cat named Ted Christopher.  He had a deep growl that was unsettling at first, but grew on me after the first few songs.

I think in the current climate of celebrity worship, be that Hollywood celebrities, Internet celebrities, or entrepreneurs who have been thrust into the limelight, there is a tendency to wish we could be that person, to have their successes, their lives. I think it’s part of a larger issue and that is we all want to feel significant. We want to…

Love And Cultivate Yourself Before Anything Else

“Remembering I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already dead. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”  – Steve Jobs It is the…
