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 speed boat, a mountain and the design

The speed boat glided across  Carter Lake. For some reason boating on a lake nestled in the middle of the Rocky Mountains is just a great way to combine two distinct worlds that meet at certain places that nature deems appropriate. Two distinct worlds in graceful harmony. A dance of textures, colors, designs and beauty. […]

The randomness of it all

You can plan everything. You can truly believe that you are in control. You schedule everything down to the minute. Finish work by 6. Have dinner by 7:30. Chat with friends and go over the agenda for the next day. You feel secure in how organized you are. But life has a way of throwing […]

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 […]

Not stuff, possessions, things, acquisitions or […]

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 […]

Maybe That is Why I Love the Rain

The rain came down in buckets. It was exquisite. The sky just opened up and sheets of water kept falling. The ground got super soaked. The pool became an eternity pool. The flowers turned their brightest colors. And then, suddenly, it stopped. The sky became empty of rain. Do you remember the first heavy rain. […]

The Seriousness of a Silent Moment

Can you sit in silence. Can you just let your mind wander aimlessly. Not trying to figure anything out or resolve any issue. Just sit in silence and take it all in. The exquisite moment. Do you appreciate that that silent moment will never be again. You just being with you. No noise. No chatter. […]
