Uniphilarsian- One who loves, regards, and watches over the unique aspect of every person‬.

How Big is Your Cube?

  How Big is Your Cube? It was just a silly game at work. You know, the psychological kind that asks one to imagine a forest, a key on the ground, or a fork in the road. Each vision relates to one's love life, likelihood of success, or hopes, dreams and fears. I was asked… Continue reading How Big is Your Cube?

Why the Umbrella?

People ask why I bring umbrellas to schools. It is because sometimes one must be dramatic to illustrate a point. When students raise the canopies above their heads, they know it is a symbol they are loved and that they can accomplish anything in life.

Way Out There!

"Way Out There!" Recently a schoolteacher described me affectionately as, "way out there." After all, purple is usually not the favorite color of men who desire to make a difference in the world.
