A compelling piece on NPR from all the way back in 2002, which, among other things, claims unchecked narcissism is the cause of “loneliness, depression and panic.” No surprise there, but I wonder, 13 years later, if we shouldn’t have paid better attention to the advise and warnings contained therein.

We recently took a week-and-a-half summer getaway to enjoy time with our children and the beautiful landscapes of Florid’s beaches. We spent a week down south near Naples, FL and the rest of the time exploring new beaches in the Tampa/St. Pete area.
