Making Magic at the Bank (of course this story involves a woman)

  Don’t worry… I didn’t rob it. But I did break an old pattern today. Usually, when I cross paths with a beautiful woman, who happens to be a complete stranger, I don’t know what to say. On a good day, I’ll smile and say, “hey,” and then quickly go back to staring at my…

The Wisdom in Not Knowing

My friend, Carolina, posted a Frank Zappa video yesterday on fb. I’m not too familiar with his music, but I love listening to him speak. There is something profound about this dude that makes me want to know more. In this particular video, he talks about the music industry and how these old white execs…
