The extraordinary routine

I have a good friend who is an amazing photographer. She has the ability and gift to capture every day moments and through her talent uncover the extraordinary in what , so often , appears ordinary. A man sitting on a stool on a side street in Istanbul ,  a bird frozen in time between […]

A photograph and time travel

I remember seeing Thornton Wilder’s Our Town.  Grover’s Corner was the little town that stays with you.  It got me thinking about life, time and , not days, but minutes in the day.Emily died while giving birth and is permitted to return for one day to “re-live” it. She chooses her 12 th birthday. It […]

The surprise of a day

  The comment was made innocently enough but ,over a glass of wine, a few hours later we laughed about it all. I said…if someone told you 10 years ago in Miami or 40 years ago in New York that today you would be riding your Harley through the foothills of Colorado over to  this […]

The invisible weight

The invisible weight. It is that weight that so many carry that can’t be seen by anyone else yet it is the heaviest weight of them all. You see it so often. A person just looks so worn out by constantly carrying some secret or regret or not living their truth.  But once they put […]

A single day and a beginning

Isn’t it time to call a halt to the nonsense. Isn’t it time to shine a light on the nonsense and call it by its right name. It seems as if all the adults have left the room. Maybe that is a good thing since lately they haven’t been doing such a great job.  It […]

Two distinct worlds in graceful harmony. A dance of textures, colors, designs and beauty. […]

A feather and seizing the day

At what point do we just give ourselves a break. At what point do we embrace our imperfection and even take joy in living our honest errors and personal quirks. When did we let the “judges” and critics have such  a say in who we  are and how we choose to live our life. I […]

Rain, a bridge and the ride

The Harley made its way over the mountain range and I got to shelter just before the lightning, thunder and rain got serious. The shelter was a bridge underpass. Just sitting on the incline watching the rain seemed to cleanse so many things. I guess it is the simplicity of it all that always attracts […]

Defining your legacy….your purpose

One of the goals in this ageless experiment is to redefine our own journey and not have some definition or limitation or restriction superimposed on us by anyone else.  We seem to live in a time when everyone is a bit on edge or not feeling safe that the system is working fairly. Maybe it […]

The effort….nothing left

I sat on the pavement with my back to the wall. The sun was still beating down. My shirt was soaked through. The prowler push high/low was the last part of the workout that tipped the scales to “nothing left”.  An other Crossfit moment. In that odd way it felt great. The idea of “nothing […]
