Accountability: Who

Accountability: Who (Audio) I suspect the biggest problem any of us have is recognizing who we are accountable to. It is more than just the “boss” at the job, the better half of our self, our children, the past, the present and the future. We are accountable for everything around us, and all that is within…

Sundowner Time

Sundowner Time: Yes. Sundowner is a term often used to represent someone who is struggling with some form of mental confusion, health challenges, and another good negative experience will probably take them off the scene permanently. Gone, just like the sun going down. Faintly dimming over the horizon, even from 30,000 feet in the air.…

The longer you are around, and the more you document those important dates, the fuller your calendar is of things worth memorializing. A…

Genre’s of Life

Genre’s of Life: (Audio) This is a relatively new word for me. Genre.

Primarily it is used in artistic endeavors as music, books,…

I’m Not Too Old To Start Fresh

I’m Not Too Old To Start Fresh: (Audio) Often we think we’ve reached the ending of our productiveness and there’s nothing new ahead. Rocking Chairs and Front Porch, here we come! Play with the grandbabies, take long walks around the lake, and enjoy life at a slower pace. But the reality is that most of…
