Planet, Universe, Vitruvian Man

Study without desire spoils the memory, and it retains nothing that it takes in. – Leonardo da Vinci

After reading the bestsellers books of Walter Isaacson on Steve Jobs and Albert Einstein, I came to appreciate how talented Mr Isaacson is as an author.

We all have those times when things are not working as planned.  It is like a setback, and we feel disappointed. It slows us down and throw us off course.

Over a year ago, I committed to start my online business. And even though I have already a full-time job as a caregiver for my husband, and I am in charge of all our affairs and household duties, I thought I could cope with both situations easily.
