Influenced By Whom, or What?

Influenced By Whom, or What? (Audio) Have you ever looked over your shoulder into your own personal history……and asked, “Why did I do that?” “Why did I choose this direction?” “Why am I like this?” There is a benefit in taking an adult view backward, especially when you look for someone to thank, and not blame,…

Where’s the Towel?

Where’s the Towel? Have you ever reached the end of an endeavor and felt like it was simply time to throw in the towel? What does that even mean? Idiomatic research suggests it is a boxing term where a coach or team member would toss a towel into the ring indicating their fighter has been…

What Did You Find?

What Did You Find? (Audio) I have this penchant for picking up things where they lie and considering adding them to my collection of things found.

A Drop in the Bucket

A Drop in the Bucket: (Audio) Except for creation at it’s beginning, nothing new simply springs into place. Everything starts with something small, grows and becomes, and eventually is recognized as worthy of consideration. Or not. Everything has a start somewhere. It’s been a long time coming, and the past several days have seen it…

To Keep or Not to Keep

To Keep or Not to Keep: (Audio) It started several years ago, and has crept into my schedule of weeding through my fragile collection of stuff and making hard decisions on what goes, what stays, and where do I put it! It has nothing to do with running out of storage room, but more with…
