I Found Just The Right Stuff To Let Go Of

By Norio De Sousa

Before we set out on our recent trip to Portugal and Panama, I decided that I would “allow” this trip to be about my spiritual awakening. I’ve long felt a bit lonely and disconnected from the “greater power” with only very tiny and passing glimpses into its presence and love. I can maybe count exactly […]

How Technology Will Bring Utopia And We’ll Hate It

By Norio De Sousa

I don’t think we’re that far away from the kind of Utopia vs Dystopia you see in movies these days. You know the ones… where there’s a planet or area where all the “haves” live and there’s a planet or area where all the “have nots” live. And the “haves” really have it all. The cure […]

Dear Cows: Please Stop Hurting Me. Kthanksbye

By Norio De Sousa

In my late twenties, I thought I might be lactose intolerant. And, after a few weeks (or maybe months) of not having any dairy at all, I had a full-on cappuccino with cream. (It was delicious!) I guess I was “testing” the theory. After all, I’d had many cappuccinos before without having any issues. Actually… […]

How To Work Less And Spend More Time at The Beach

By Norio De Sousa

I open my laptop to work. I’m in a beach-facing apartment at the coast. I can see the ocean in front of me. I want to sit on that beach. There’s nearly nothing else at all I want more. Something interesting happens when you remove yourself from your normal work place. Or rather, something interesting […]
