Community page-welcome: time management should include time for experiences that expand boundaries. My balance activities include family, friends, travel, writing, reading, self development, sports and whatever seems interesting - be flexible and go with the flow at times. These activities, plus business pursuits provide background for my perspectives which I am pleased to share with others.

"Never content, always a tension, a coiled spring waiting for release, a mountain of contradictions, a valley of volatility, a fountain of faith, a river searching for an ocean;and the beat goes on." Fred, Dec., 2011

2005-2006 Personal blog pictures: Winter and spring in 'Land of Lakes' region, Ontario, Canada. These are the 'Walden Pond', reflective, isolated but very productive periods of my life. Cold winters in the woods, on a lake with very little outside contact. It wasn't meant to be that way, but...what an experience! Flying squirrelsloons, geese, porcupine, raccoon and waterfall.
