High five the day

The ageless experiment. The words just make sense to me. An experiment in ageless living. A challenge to live beyond categories. Live beyond boundaries. It applies to all ages and stages in life.  Don’t buy into some false restriction that others may want to impose on you. Live each day as the experiment that it […]

The majesty of the subtle

What stays with you? What lingers with you? What causes you to pause and reflect?  What stops you in your tracks?   For me, it is rarely things. It usually is some observation. Some passing image. Some subtle movement.  It is the space between the words. The silence in the midst of noise. The look […]

Resurrection in the morning

Resurrection. Coming back to life. To me, it means coming back after a fall. Or a failing. Or a trauma. Or a loss. Or a disappointment. It is going to sleep at night with some burden but knowing and truly believing that the nighttime is a time of release of the weight and the morning […]

“wait up please”

I heard him call out from the back of the store. His voice was loud and clear. It was also filled with anxiety. I turned to see what was happening.  I stood there and a sadness fell over me. The voice came from a little boy about 6 years old. He was calling out to […]

I.S.H.G.

I think it is the innocence of it all that always gets me. The ladybug or princess or butterfly costume that the little ones wear as if the universe depended on it. You watch as they walk up to the door and shyly says “trick or treat”. Innocence. What a concept. Sincerity. What a thought. […]

278 in red

I found the hat. Ever just go crazy for some item that is meaningless to everyone else but hits you just right.  Nonsensical yet for some reason touches you somewhere you just can’t explain. For me it was this hat. Then I thought I lost it. Tonight it was found. Okay…I know not earth shattering […]

The ageless bookshelf

It  kind of happened by accident. There was some planning but not really. It  just took shape over the years. As I sit in the den and look at the bookcase my eyes wander the collection of things placed here and there on the shelves. We all have those places. Those shelves. Those stories. A […]

Living outside of expectations

How did you spend your Sunday morning. What is your routine. Was it sleeping in? Was it the Sunday paper? A brunch?  Meeting up with friends for coffee? Sundays are great. There are so many possibilities. A long walk.  An early glass of wine.  For us it was our Crossfit Sunday.  Short,sweaty, exhausting, challenging and […]

A path to the stage

I couldn’t tell how old they were. Some looked more tired than others but the age was tough to call. What did seem to separate them was the  smile on their faces or not. Some were just so serious. You could tell that they were measuring each word spoken or  each position taken. Some just […]
