The Dalai Lama in Manchester

He said vision, warm-heartedness and determination were necessary to attain those goals and that young people were more open-minded.

Dialogue was the key to avoid violent conflicts, he said.

He continued: “At the age of 16 I lost my freedom. At the age of 24 I lost my own country. During these 50 or 60 years I have faced a lot of problems but I never give up hope. Hope based on truth, hope based on reason.”



A Father, a Son and a Fighting Chance

“As this Father’s Day approached, all I could think about was how much I want my son to experience the joys of being a father, how much I want him to marry the person he loves and to raise a family.”

Such an amazing article written by a father for his son on Father’s Day.  Beautiful.

Hello world!

logorrhea – (from Greek λογορροια (logorrhoia); from λόγος (logos), meaning “word”, and ῥοία (rhoia), meaning “flow”).  What does this word mean, then?  Basically, word vomit.  Uncontrolled talking.  When I get impassioned about something I find that I jest with my friends that I am in the middle of a bout of logorrhea.

I think too much.  I watch too many Ted talks, which you will find I reference a lot.  I read too much news, which you will also find me rambling about.  I talk too much with my friends about things, which I also might ponder freely here.

So I ask your forgiveness in advance.  I will always try to be fair and balanced.  I will try and make you think.  But most of all, this is just to get this stuff out of my head so I can stop obsessing.  So either put up with it or obsess with me.
