What takes your breath away?

People have different ways of connecting with the world. We have our five senses through which we perceive our world: Sight, Sound, Touch, Taste and Smell. People often have one that they prefer over others or they do a mixture but one is often most dominant.


Surround yourself with objects that you find visually pleasing. I really enjoycolors as you will note from many of the pictures on this site. Collect pictures that inspire you. Put them around your desk. Make collages and vision boards.


Find songs that really energize you. Listen to really great speakers or books on tape. There are so many wonderful stories - We’re actively collecting them to share with you.
