Committed vs Unsure

Committed vs Unsure: (Audio) When I was young, maybe 5 or 6, I think, I sat in a dentist office as my parents had their teeth pulled. All of them, essentially. I’m not sure why I have this memory, maybe it was the noise, smell, and sounds of drills and moans of patients. Maybe, just…

The Power of a Compass

The Power of a Compass: (Audio) A compass is a remarkable tool.  A child can make one with everyday material found at home. And I remember doing this in scouting back in the early 60’s! Of course, if you don’t know what the purpose of a compass is, then it matters little whether you can make…

Not quite the way we would normally choose our “vaccination” time, but sometimes life requires things out of you that you would just as soon not have to deal with. This year, we opted for a retreat…

Tomorrow Is A Mystery

Tomorrow Is A Mystery: Think about it with me…Every future moment is a mystery! Everything we do not know is a mystery! We cannot only guess, speculate and wonder about the Great Unknown of Mystery. That future breath just waiting for our lungs to inhale, and then exhale? A mystery moment waiting to reveal. Success?…

The Older I Get

The Older I Get: The older I get, I find, More important is the moment, And more importantly, The extraction of all the flavors of the moment, To savor and enjoy later on. The older I get, I know, Are the importance my memories, And more importantly, To savor, recall, and share. Why? Once you’re…

Just Over The Border

Just Over The Border: It’s been years since I’ve traveled south and crossed the border into Mexico. Goodness. Maybe even 40 years or more. But our neighbors to the north? I’ve crossed into Canada 30, 40 or 50 times. It’s hard to remember. The first time was in 1977 on a long drive from Texas…
