What is Eudaemonia?

This Greek word for human flourishing is becoming all the rage as Americans engage in the pursuit of happiness. Like everything in our country, it’s becoming big business. Invest in joy.

Psalm 136

O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good, for His love endures forever.

Sunset At The Beacon

What a beautiful way to toast the autumn at the seashore in Misquamicut, RI.

What does G.K. stand for?

His initials remain a mystery until you google the meaning. But what G.K. Chesterton stands for is clear in this quote: “I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.”

What really counts?

When we are surrounded by the tumult of economic turmoil, or burdened by personal setbacks, what really counts is this: Count your blessings. Each of us, taking a breath and a moment of reflection, can know great peace calling to mind the goodness that has touched us. Then, in turn, we touch others.

How do we win together?

“It’s not the power of the person in the partnership.

It’s the power of the partnership in the person.”

— Juan Arquero
