Alicia Keys. I admire the depth and soulfulness of her music, how she channels pain into positive energy. To me, she is an example of vulnerability and not hiding who you truly are. She encourages me to be comfortable in my own skin and to focus on inner beauty.

Thi Vo A Beautiful Chaos
I wonder if we’re missing real opportunities to connect because we’ve caved into our digitally crazed world that we find ourselves in.
Technology gives us this illusion that we can be everywhere and do anything when in reality we’re nowhere and can’t get anything done.
It’s difficult sometimes just to be merely present. And the flip side of it is, sometimes it’s difficult to be around other people, isn’t it? The fear of rejection, being judged, not knowing what your relationship is like with that other person.
Technology, unfortunately, is like a double-edged sword. It has both the power to enhance our lives and also to destroy it.

Dave Nelson Thinking Creatively Amidst the Chaos.
No game is worth it if you're not bringing everyone from the bottom up along with you... it's about the larger collective.
I think that genius is something that we share collectively—not individually. And while it’s really important to share the achievements of those around us, it’s equally as important for us to realize the power that we hold as a group.
The greatest movements come from groundswells—not calls to action.
