    Twitter and Alternative Realities.

    Hi,Opening my Twitter the other day I was greeted by a message from sex abuse denier Jim Jordan, a distasteful individual who is campaigning for re-election in Ohio. This isn’t something calculated to put me in a good mood for the day. I see this, apparently, because other people I follow have clicked the ‘like’ button in Twitter, and so an algorithm cleverly written by someone who doesn’t know me, or apparently many other people and doesn’t get out very often thinks this is what I’d like to be exposed to first thing in the morning. Elon Musk’s recent takeover of the platform is the latest in a series of episodes…

    Something Sinister This Way Comes.

    As we move toward Halloween something truly sinister this way comes.  The end of year holidays. How fitting that such a time should be ushered in by the ghosts and ghouls of the night of the dead. Night time trick or treating has been known to go sideways, as you likely know. I’ve explained to younger clients that dressing up as the figure of Death, complete with a scythe and mask, and lurking in the grounds of the local seniors home, outside the television room, looking in through the window, is not something that’s going to win them any friends. Pointing a skeletal hand and mouthing, “I’ve come for you!”…

    A Different Way Of Purchasing.

    I had an interesting talk with a client the other day.  They were describing their frustrations about the way they are marketed to. This is an area I am very interested in, running my small business. They felt that they were consistently being told to buy products or services, while often they’d managed perfectly well without buying new things, and making do with what they already have. They felt the pressure of all these marketing messages, on Facebook, their TV and every billboard in town was wearing them down both emotionally and financially. This was, by any reasonable definition, a from of mental stress. It certainly is true that we…

    A quick story to elevate you.

    Over the years many clients have shared their stories with me. This particular story came to me from a delightful woman who agreed to let me repeat it on the condition I not reveal the location or her name. You may find it of some interest. The woman in question lived in downtown Vancouver years ago, but left shortly after Expo 86. They were the daughter of the building manager who managed a location then bordering Stanley Park. Apparently the property in question used to be somewhere many seniors lived. There was apparently one old woman who had lived there most of her adult life. In those days quite a few…
