The unexpected.

It is always there. Sometimes lurking. Sometimes kind of even expected .  But not.  The unexpected. Not have to be bad or good. Just not anticipated at that moment in time or in your life. The accident.  The injury.  The wrong turn. The right turn and happy surprise. The good news. The sudden sad news. […]

Passion

We have this one chance …as far as we know. This one opportunity to tell a story. Our choices then write that story on a daily basis.  Ever wonder why some never tell the story that is waiting to be told? Holding back? Fearful of the critics?  Yet each day the time is  running out. […]

Magic

Magic. Do you believe in it? I don’t mean magicians on TV or in shows. I mean real magic. When you consider it all, our life here is quite magical. Here we are. How did that come to be. The sun rises. The moon effects the tides. Yes, I know there are scientific explanations for […]

Before

Before. I remember before there were credit cards. You paid for what you bought right there. I remember before there was TV. We talked, read or listened to the radio. I remember before there was air conditioning in homes or cars. Before. Now we live in the “after” world. After all this noise and debt […]

Bypass

I had bypass surgery 6 months ago this coming Wednesday. 5 bypasses. I am back at crossfit challenging myself to be more. Testing the limits of healing and the body’s response. I am pushing forward. I realized once again that the gift is fragile. Yet the body and spirit are amazing. We are the ultimate […]
