Lessons From A Razor
One of my least favorite things to do every morning is to shave. I dislike it so much that I grew a beard in order not to shave. However, I grew tired of the beard because it got long and grey and my grandchildren started calling me, “Santa,” and, “HoHo,” so I went back to shaving.

The Touch On The Spider's Web
My favorite novel from my time at Appalachian State was “All the King’s Men” by Robert Penn Warren. The theme of this novel is the “great spider web theory.” If the spider web is touched at any point, the touch echoes throughout the web.  Any decision or interaction has an impact on future events and touches countless others.
