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 […]

Not even a contest

Not even a contest. You watch the sunset. Or maybe you are an early riser and watch the sunrise. During the day you take a break from the routine and look up. Or look to the horizon. Or maybe you take a moment during the day and watch your child play. You reflect that you […]

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. […]

A gentle insightful moment

Last night we saw Garrison Keillor at the Paramount in Denver. The art of the story teller. The humorist. The observer. The clever eye that has a kindness  about the things it sees. The connection between us. The beginnings and ends. The connecting threads that bind us together. How I wish there were more Garrisons […]

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. […]

The gentle moments

I sat alone at the Miami  restaurant table having a glass of wine. It was a quiet Miami night. The restaurant was just starting to come alive. The elderly man slowly walked in. He was struggling with each step but his two adult children were gently guiding him.  The staff clearly knew him and helped […]

Who matters

Time has always fascinated me. Doesn’t it fascinate you? Time. Time is the fluid in which we travel. It is this body of water that we swim in as we go through our adventures during the day. As each moment ticks away it is gone forever. Yet while it is here we choose to be, […]
