Giving each other a break

We have reached the point where we have to stop blaming, stop excusing, stop pointing fingers and give each other a break. This past week a friend suddenly passed away. A good decent smart caring person. But time does not stand still even for the good ones. It flies by and then you consider the […]

Why

I took the Harley out. Turned on to 119 heading to Golden. At Route 72 turned right into Coal Creek Canyon. It gets twisty at spots. Switchbacks and curves fill up the miles of riding. Turn right to get to Nederland. That is where I got off to grab some coffee before heading down the […]

Legacy and meaning

What is our legacy. What is our meaning. To some extent it is told long after we are gone. We live our life. As we live it we write our meaning. Each day our actions create our legacy. Why does it matter? I guess the issue is what do we do with our time. Is […]

Different

He looked at me and said he just saw things differently than others did. I asked him how. He said he just did. He said he saw a bigger picture. He saw a larger story. He saw the beauty in the ordinary. He said he even “felt” time. I inquired as to “felt” meaning what. […]

The destination

The journey. The destination. They are one and the same. How you live your life each day, how you treat people, the choices you make, the people you help, the kindnesses you share, the smiles you bring to others, the passion with which you experience life…it all is part of the journey, which is the […]
