Hour of the Wolf

Keep in mind that no one gets out of life alive. That is the reality.  Sooner or later that truth is front and center.  Then you start appreciating the gift of the moment.  The days keep racing by. No stopping them from doing that. The hour of the wolf is your wake up call to […]

The search

We are constantly on the search for the meaning of our time here.  Whether you realize it or not. That is always the undercurrent of all you do. The why. The how come. The search. The meaning. The purpose. The legacy. The impact. The comfort in knowing you meant something positive to someone. That you […]

Joy

I hadn’t seen him in a long time. Just the way life is sometimes. Our paths just hadn’t crossed for a bit. But then there he was.  It was at a local farmers market. You know that place on a weekend to pick up fresh fruits and vegetables and assorted local dishes. I didn’t recognize […]

The path

Is it a knowing? A silent history? A coming together. You feel safe. You feel known. You feel secure. You feel like you can be yourself and […]

In Hour of the Wolf  I write about choices and decisions. Turning left or right and what would have been […]

Past present

Today is one year since quintuple bypass heart surgery. A year. 365 days. The past and the present collide at moments like this. Time becomes irrelevant. It is just you in your life with all the experiences that fill it up. And then you turn around and another day..year.. Moment .. Experience .  Life goes […]

Goodness

Certain words you just don’t hear a lot about these days. You don’t hear them used in conversation anymore. You hear a lot of words like great, super, spectacular  but not  “goodness”.  And yet goodness feels like what is needed now more than ever. Kindness. Decency.  Generosity. Goodness. Goodness to me seems to be connected […]

Sooner or later

Sooner or later. Mostly later it seems. We wake up to the reality that the sands are slipping from one side of the hour glass to the other and …. The hour glass can’t be turned over to start again. Sooner or later…usually later we open our eyes to the unbending truth that we are […]
