I am a PhD physchologist who has been a practicioner, teacher, university administrator and rancher. During my college years I was fortunate to develop a relationship with Leon Festinger and his wife Mary. His research and resulting theory of Cognitive Dissonance greatly changed the way that I viewed happiness and the lack thereof in my fellow humans. Throughout my life I have made a practice of studying and identifying the people, places and things in my life that have brought about happiness or difficulties.
