The Season of Promise

I’ve been flicking through the ads on television lately and it’s hard not to notice how glittering everything is.  The airwaves are filled with commodities that promise happiness, like toothpaste that will put the sparkle of Christmas into our smile, cosmetics that will add luster to our appearance. Even financial companies get into the act [Read More...]
