Birth of the BeeArd
It was hard not to stare and appreciate Raymond’s look–12-inch long natural extension of his neatly trimmed beard framing his warm smile and inquisitive eyes. I ask him what he called the 12-inch extension and he said, “it’s just my beard man, my look.” I said, it’s got to be more than that; why, it’s a big statement, don’t you think? Can I call it a BeeArd!” He smiled, slap hands and said, “done, I like that.” Turns out that Raymond’s passion is writing about “perception” when he’s not working at Zip Cleaners as a “senior fabric technician.” I remarked that I also wrote about perception in my advisory practice, Paradigm Research. He asked for some writing advice so I traded some thoughts for his picture and promised I would post it with some written advice. This is for you, Raymond; it’s the first thing I wrote about perception on August 8, 1989 when I decided to found Paradigm Research International. It has served me well:
Perception is Reality
What you see is what you get
but what yo u see i s how you see;
YOU SEE, we loo K throughfilters wedesign
with h e l p from 0 bjects we desire

Good for you and Raymond on the subject of perception. Two opposing fans claim the opposite at a close play at first base and both are convinced they are right.
Thanks for the comment and a good example to add to my metaphor box.
I enjoyed this wonderful article about Michael’s success. My congratulations to Michael and to his dedicated, proud father.
