Nowadays, it feels as if we are watching the world through an electronic apparatus, trying to experience a semblance of what we took for granted last year.

But even as the simulations with a digital audience in baseball try their best to emulate what was commonplace last year, the reality of what we are experiencing continues to manifest as the players themselves, spread the virus within.

The prospect of yielding to the overwhelming issues at hand are enough to make anyone scream. But perhaps, the solution is to throw one’s hands in the air with the expectation of trying to enjoy the ride.

It sounds abstract. Problematic even. But deep within, the power to perceive portions of this new experience as beneficial and stimulating remains viable.

Given the perceptual universe that dictates our enjoyment and our engagement with the current reality, I believe it is within one’s power to discover deeper values and greater enjoyment from things that were less apparent in the world of massive distraction that we have vacated.

Watching like animals inside a cage through electronic media gives us an opportunity to decide whether or not this is the future we wish to inhabit or whether we are willing to go the extra mile to ensure that our future is more enjoyable than that which we left behind.

The choice is ours. Happy Wednesday, try throwing your hands in the air today and enjoy the ride!?

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!
