~Chris waiting for school bus~

I first “met” Daniel Pink in 2007 when I’d stumbled upon his book A WHOLE NEW MIND, Riverhead Books, c2005. I’d arrived home late in the evening, after driving from Delaware.

I have started THE POWER OF REGRET. I am pacing myself: I have several other books in various stages of being read and a few other things that also demand my undivided attention. I’ve been retired for 12 years; funny, I seem to have less time now than I did way back when …
