A Beautiful Art: Communication

“Communication is a science, not an art”, said my son. “Why not art?”, I inquired. Without a blink, he responded, “Because art should be beautiful and meaningful.”   The words uttered by a 13-year-old boy on a casual Tuesday afternoon started a deep conversation on how we communicate and why is so important to learn how to.

Little Big Town Called Lebanon

I live in a relatively small but big in heart town called Lebanon. Located in Middle Tennessee, 25 minutes East of Nashville. When we first came here it was the first time I heard of the town.
