Tipping Points

The wheelchair rolled up to the toy store entrance but did not go in. The aisles were just too narrow and busy for it. He waited by the entrance. I don’t know why it caught my attention but it just did. His grandson ran out the store and yelled about a great toy he found […]

Your Personal D-Day

D-Day. Here we are on June 6th again. That day of high drama, great hopes, shattering fears and both death and glory. Yet I always go back to each day. How each day we are faced with great hopes, fears, compromise and telling our story the best way we know how. On this special day, […]

Sweat Knows No Age

The morning ritual. For us it is 6:30 am. Workout clothes on. First cup of coffee done. Water bottle filled. Johnny Cash on the radio….the Man In Black. Crossfit is waiting.

The Harley and the Triumph patiently waited. As the garage door opened and the sunlight peaked through the¬†motorcycles woke up. Sound odd. Maybe but I believe it is true.

As we sat sipping wine at the wonderful Villa Mandarin just outside of Fethiye, Turkey, we witnessed a view of life that was so refreshing. First, it was a view of life. Not stuff, possessions, things, acquisitions or […]

A Call to Prayer

It is the combination, the mixture, the juxtaposition of all the pieces that gets the mind, spirit and soul racing. You hear the call to prayer from the loudspeakers. It is beautiful and compelling. You see the flag waving in the breeze. Red. Crescent moon. Star. You see the crystal clear blue water. The steps […]

The Five Decisions

We sat around the table at a restaurant overlooking the aegean sea. The Turkish riviera. We just flew in from Istanbul after flying in to Istanbul from the airport a hour away from Capadocia. What a day. How do you end up anywhere. How did it exactly happen. Why us. Why here. Decisions of a […]

Living a Life that Counts

How to explain any of it. How to process any of it. Maybe just describing it is the starting point. Istanbul. The history. The authentic feel. The busy streets. The timelessness. The agelessness. We have been here five days now. From Topkapi Palace to the Blue Mosque to the Grand Bizaar to the corner restaurants […]
