Start with what is right rather than what is acceptable.

Our country seems to be at the precipice of so many moral dilemmas.

The massive amount of misinformation and underhanded behavior from the government at a moment of what has always been a peaceful transfer of power in our country, makes us look like a banana republic to the world at large.

As this virus continues to claim lives all around us and Congress prepares to dismantle healthcare for tens of millions of people, we are finding ourselves caught between a demagogue and his rhetoric and any fraction of society that is sentient.

With so much at stake, this thought from Kafka could not be any more prescient than it is right now.

Listening to masses of people chanting in unison at a political rally sounds so very much like the third Reich as to be incredibly unsettling for the rest of us to cope with.

Americans have always seemed to have a willingness to steer towards choices that were morally sound, and it is my profound hope that a majority of Americans will search their hearts and realize that this is the election that changes everything for better or worse.

It feels incumbent upon all of us to do whatever we may to watch out for the people we care about and do our best to keep them from harm’s way.

13 days and counting.🇺🇸

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!
