A red mustang and a summer night

It was a red mustang. I think it was 1964. It was my first car. I drove it to Penn State in my sophomore year. It was a stick. It was a convertible . It was heaven. I saw it today on a street in Delray. I know it wasn’t mine but there it was. […]

A state of grace

It had been quite a while since the Crossfit workout almost brought me to my knees and nausea. I mean they are all challenging and test your very fiber but this one was different. I don’t know why but just was. The 20 minutes ticked off like the clock was broken and only worked sporadically. […]

The living legacy

Well , I looked for one or more books that brings together my take on this improbable journey we are all on.  Although I found bits and  pieces here and there, I decided to see if I could put it down in one place. So  I started to write my story to see if it […]

Diving deep or just shallow surface. Getting dirty or not making even a ripple.  Being so neat and tidy or ending it all a bit bruised and battered.  I vote for the deep dive, the getting dirty and the bruises and getting a bit battered. I need to know it was lived fully. We have […]

The magic of the first time

Do you remember the first time. The very first time. You never did it before so it was really the first time. And you knew it at the time. You realized that this was the first time. I suppose the last time you do it it will be just as memorable but I have to […]

Letting go and finding the sweet spot

What matters. What has meaning. What do you spend your time thinking about. What do you share. What do you hide. What would you give it all up for. What would you walk away from. What would make you stay.  What gives you peace. What ties you in knots. What does a day mean to […]

Magic and the wand

She walked in….no, rather she bounced, skipped and hopped in, carrying her magic wand and talking about how it made everything she touched it with beautiful. As the day wore on, we played, talked and shared tall stories. As the day went on we saw a parade, awed at the horses and riders in grand […]
