  • Follow your instinct

    If there was anything that I came to understand more profoundly this year it would have to be the power of instinct: mine, our animals and the forces of ideologies of which I agree and disagree.  I reread my year end column from 2011 which reminded me of where I was 12 months ago; it helps me better appreciate where I am today.  It seems we didn’t do too badly, after all, and it’s all because both Andy and I recognize the power of instinct.
