The Unknown Thing

“Faith requires following the power of a whisper.”  ~ Shannon L. Alder We are smart. We have learned from many teachers. We have Googled and YouTubed and Alexa’d our way through the last 20 years! Isn’t that amazing? We’ve had ANSWERS at our fingertips for so long…so why do I feel so ignorant? Perhaps relying on outside sources to learn …

Time to Walk!

“The hardest thing about the road not taken is that you never know where it might have led.”  ~ Lisa Wingate How do we know when it’s time for a change? Challenging Career. Interesting Person. Warmer Environment. Improved Nutrition. My mom always said, “Wherever you go, there you are.” Then perhaps that desire for something different is actually the cry …

Into the Frying Pan!

When the water starts boiling it is foolish to turn off the heat. ~ Nelson Mandela The heat is on! There’s urgency to what we’re doing – can you feel it? People have learned about what you’re capable of – now what? It’s time to produce, shine, speak, create, dance, write, sing, move – LEAP! When we offer hope, solutions, …

Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. ~ Maya Angelou How would we live if there were lifeguards at every turn?

2019…Take Two

The beginning is the most important part of the work. Plato What if February actually jumpstarted the new year? January should really be ashamed of itself. It came in upside down and lopsided, confused us a bunch, and then ended by nearly freezing us all to death! Let’s call a do-over. The real beginning of 2019 starts now. As this …

The Battle Helmet

“Every victorious warrior draws his strength from the highest source; his love.”  ~ Tapan Ghosh My son earned the coveted Battle Helmet after a weekend of hockey games, and it was fantastic to witness both his hard work and the smile on his face when he walked out of the locker room! He went into the weekend of games knowing …

First Thoughts

The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking. ~ Albert Einstein We see pictures of the world here and there – when we recycle, travel, watch TV, or a variety of other encounters. What is the FIRST thing you think when you see a picture of our …

Shift Happens!

“If people only understood the incredible power of a shift in perspective…” ~ Akiroq Brost One man. One phone. One computer. One laptop stand. He thinks. He writes. He researches. He runs. This man. At the gym. I’ve seen him twice now. He’s working on something important. The library is no longer an option – perhaps it never was. He …
