Each year on New Year's Day my wife and I listen to a message from a spiritual teacher of ours or one of our heroes. We listen. We reflect. We rest.
We set the intention for the new year to cultivate the hero in ourselves. We look to eachother to have the strength to stay with it. To overcome any challenges and to recognize beauty.
If you are looking for an inspirational read or spiritual teaching this new year, here are a few I read over and over again:
The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephan Covey
The New York Times Sunday Edition
Fareed Zakaria every Sunday
Will Adler at Holiday Party
I think as you look to the future, you realize you have a certain amount of time with your family and loved ones. To create a foundation of trust and sincerity is something that will really stay with you. There's an underlying purpose to keeping the family together and focusing on the longevity.
Brent and Will Adler
As I welcome 2018, it's a time to move forward with the wonderful qualities my parents impressed upon me. I may be 65 and my parents passed away over 20 years ago, but I still remember key moments where they seemed larger than life because of a simple action.
A simple action was: giving a coca cola to the neighbor on a hot day, inviting anyone single over to our house for the holiday even if it was last minute, giving their warm jackets to the young kids in the neighborhood and teaching me the power of thank you when you really mean it. We grew up in a mixed orthodox and reform Jewish neighborhood in Detroit. My parents were not strict with kosher food, so we were the house all Jewish kids in the neighborhood could come and get bacon. My parents always had a strong intention to keep the family whole.
As my daughter likes to remark often, "Jay Z says, "You got to set your intention", It's yours. Your intention to hold, activate and project out in the world." -Shane Adler inspired by Jay Z
My intention is to find courage in myself and share that courage with others.
Brent Adler and Renee Love Employee of the Year
Renee is our Merchandise Manager. She is our Hero this year.
Welcome 2018. Welcome. I invite you to welcome it yourself.
What will this year bring you?
I am setting my intention here with you. I want to be courageous.
Courage to be me.
Courage to confront.
Courage to not know the answer.
Courage to love even when I'm mad or fearful.
Courage to be.
We hope you all have a Happy New Year. From my family to yours.

The monogram has existed since 350 B.C., but came into popularity as steam ships started to cross the Atlantic to help identify the trunks and luggage of the travelers. Today, the monogram remains a functional identifier, while also lending personal style to your leather goods.
Personalize your product or gift with monogramming in either our small serif font (1/4") or our large sans-serif font (1/2") shown above. We use traditional heat stamping to emboss into our vegetable tanned leather.
