from around the world and from deep within, here you will find our musings on things that captivate and interest us. 


hands we can't see

Every day we take for granted the little luxuries that our global economy offers us. 

We drink our coffee.  We start our day.  All the while, hidden from our view is the enormity of human effort, labor, and heart that has gone in to providing us that luxury.   This separation from the labors and efforts of people just like us, prevents us from thinking about the choices we make as consumers. 

It prevents us from thinking critically about the important ways our choices affect other people around the planet.

As a result it is often impossible to honor and respect the people who work every day to make those luxuries available to us.
