Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.

In a moment in history in which we are coping with one of our most dystopian societies, one of the most essential ingredients that any person can bring to the equation is kindness.

Kindness comes through tone of voice, behavior, willingness to extend of oneself, deeds and actions, and an overall personal demeanor. Through all of this, the person who is extending the kindness is able to transmit something of immeasurable value to others, especially on days that they need it most.

One of my most favorite aphorisms is “no one needs a smile more than one who has none left to give.”

One of the most interesting qualities of this particular act is that the recipient is incredibly grateful for the receipt of the kindness and the person who has extended the kindness is rewarded through the warmth that they witness in watching the kindness act as it was intended.

It is truly the definition of a win-win.

As Twain notes above, kindness is felt across all maladies, it is a universal language that all living things are receptive to. Animals are incredibly receptive as are plants and other growing things. Try it. An act of kindness goes a long way😊

When I was 5 years old, I discovered that the lemon tree in the backyard + dixie cups + water and sugar and I was in business. I have been hooked on that ever since. In 1979, I borrowed $14,000 to create a brand new product... photographic greeting cards with no text on the inside, called Paradise Photography. That was the start of The Illusion Factory. Since then, The Illusion Factory has been entrusted by all of the major studios and broadcasters with the advertising and marketing of over $7 billion in filmed, live, broadcast, gaming, AR, VR and regulated gaming forms of entertainment, generating more than $100 Billion in revenue and 265 awards for creativity and technology for our clients. When I took a break from film school at UCLA to move to Hawaii, my mother did not lecture me. Instead, she took 150 of her favorite aphorisms and in her beautiful calligraphy, wrote them artistically throughout a blank journal. That is the origin of the Lessons from the Mountain series. Since then, on my journeys to the top of a mountain to watch the sunrise, I have spent countless hours contemplating words of wisdom from the sages of all races, genders and political persuasions, constantly accumulating the thoughts to guide me on my life path. I hope you enjoy my books. Please let me know your thoughts, as I highly value your feedback!
