Being ludicrous is more than just taking risks; it’s stepping outside of our comfort zones and seeing how we respond. It’s testing ourselves and seeing what works and what doesn’t. It means becoming intimately familiar with ourselves, our strengths and weaknesses, and making choices based on what we want to accomplish.

There are a few reasons to attend carefully to the outdoors, but here’s the biggest one: grit, resilience, and critical thinking are all essential to anyone wanting to learn or do anything. Just ask anyone in education or business.

Our children didn't follow a traditional straight line, and they still don't. In their current lives as fathers, they eschew much of cultural dogma, and stand their ground with definite ideas and principles. We didn't trace a straight line for them, so we couldn't expect them to follow one. Yes, it is hard to leave them be when they face the adult world threshold after high school. One has to let go, take a leap of faith, trust that you have done your best, and hope they figure it out successfully their own.

How many minutes ticked away as we waited for this subtle cool to arrive, feeling the pervasive heat embracing us like an fur coat? The day was an overzealous host, benevolent and giving of warmth, when it was least wanted. We pull the shades down, and sit in the warm darkness of the indoors.

"April Fool's!" You'll hear Americans yell after their co-worker discovers his stapler in Jell-O. In Brazil April 1st is called Dia da Mentira or "Day of the lie,” while in France children tape a picture of a fish on their friends' backs and yell "Poisson d'Avril!" or "April fish!" The fish symbolizes a naive and easily caught (gullible) person. It's all in good fun and part of a time honored tradition dating back to ancient times.

We live in a culture that’s obsessed with youth, which makes it difficult for a woman who makes strides later in life to get her due. This is a disservice to us all. Around the world, millions of women found their best success while friends were retiring, and many reached true greatness in their fifties, sixties and beyond.

In 1999 the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) proclaimed March 21 World Poetry Day. It's a day set aside to honor the art form and recognize its contribution to not only literature but also music, theater, dance, and the visual arts.
