A really good article about one of my favorite short stories ever. I apologize for the lack of posts, Been really busy. Also, happy 10th birthday tf2!

DOCMARTIN1: It's Business and Personal

I continue to think about what constitutes powerful leadership. In the book “Playing God: Redeeming the Gift of Power,” the author states that “life if power.” Interesting comment. However, this author also states, “Power at its best is resurrection to full life, to full humanity. Whenever human beings become what they were meant to be, when even death cannot finally hold its prisoners, then we can truly speak of power.”

AKWARD STOCK IMAGES

I recall seeing a picture of a woman buried in cherries with only her face showing, kiwis on her eyes and a cherry in her mouth. The lack of context here is what’s funny.
