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

There is this choice. There are so many paths that we are confronted with in our life. Honest or not. Noble or not. Selfless or selfish. Self absorbed or altruistic. Professional or not. Civil or not.  What path to take?  It depends I guess on how you define yourself. How much faith do you have […]

Hour of the Wolf

Over the last few months I have had the pleasure and honor of discussing Wolf with a number of  groups. It seems that the link with so many is the concept of time, choices and consequences. Time is such a gift. A gift that is usually ignored until it has just about run out. It […]

The connection

Sometimes it just happens. Not planned.  Not expected. Not anticipated. There is this connection between certain people. It is unexplainable. There is just this connection. Is it spiritual? 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 […]

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 […]

Spread the message

It is easy to just keep doing the same things over and over. The routine. Yet each day is unique. The day should not be a rut. The relationships. The connections. The unfolding legacy. Each day is an endangered species. Each day you can begin again.  Each morning the sun rises and there is unlimited […]

New year thoughts.

Every year the ritual takes place. Farewells and resolutions.  This time it feels different.  It feels more. Maybe the health issues this past year added to the  drama of life. Open heart surgery I guess gets its point across.  We are strong and fragile at the same time.  The ultimate human paradox. So how to […]
