But when it gets right down to it, spirituality is about DOING YOUR WORK. It is about looking inward. It is about spending time by yourself, enjoying your own good company, crafting your own good decisions - it's about thinking well - and leading from the Inside.

Some empty store fronts were disguised: one was a former teen clothing retailer location turned into a candy store, and now just a display for three new Sears home appliances, with curtains hung behind them to hide the fact that it used to be a storefront.
