Como expone Ryan Holiday en este revelador volumen, los obstáculos no son sólo instancias en el camino que debemos vencer: también pueden ser una fuente de inspiración y, aún más, una herramienta para convertir las crisis en oportunidades, y los reveses en escalones para el éxito.
Obstacles are not merely objects in our path that we need to overcome. They can also be a source of inspiration, or even a tool for turning crisis into opportunity and setbacks into steps to success.

The Last of Tim's Bees' Honey is Creamed
The Bee's are busy at the moment, but we will restock by mid-summer!
From Tim Benedict's Orion Artisinal Honey & Garlic Farm
HONEY from Tim's BEES flying around FRANKLIN GROVE, IL
While honey is the one foodstuff that never goes bad, it does get kind of hard to use when it crystallizes. Creamed honey is taking crystallized honey, heating it and stirring/blending in liquid honey until the result is a smooth, sweet treat, easy to measure for recipes or to spoon into beverages or onto the medium of your choice (honey peanut butter toast, yum, yum!)!
It's been said that local honey is great for warding off bad germs and aiding in the relief of sinus/breathing difficulties. Regardless, it tastes great!
And What a Great Gift Idea!
This is the last of this season's bounty, so get it while you can.
