Death comes for us all… This is as far as I have seemed to be able to get on this topic this week. Death comes for us all. Last week I wrote about travel as the space between birth and death… (haven’t posted that one yet —- but it’s some good thoughts and fitting….) Travel — the space between heaven and earth. I like to think that we all came from heaven in one since or another. Through the messy birth canal of life we arrive, somewhat perfect. I remember my … [Read more...] about Death Comes For Us All — a tribute to Nelson
Sometimes I loose focus. Sometimes I feel lost. "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." Ferris Bueller Life keeps moving. Hold on. Look up. Don't miss it. The reality is that I am not lost. My feet are planted firmly on the floor. I have chosen a path and keep treading along. I am an ARTIST. I am a SPEAKER. I am an Euntrapranerer. I do not fully understand what it all means or where it is all going. Over the … [Read more...] about Look up
Life of Pi… on letting go
Life is a mess. A brief commentary on the LIFE of PI. At times life seems to be moving in the perceived “right” direction; then there are other times where life seems to be spinning wildly out of control. We all live somewhere in that TENSION on any given day. I just watched the movie LIFE of Pi. It has been on my radar for years. I first heard of the book when traveling through India. A book of spiritual searching about a young Indian boy and a tiger. I had been drawn to the … [Read more...] about Life of Pi… on letting go

30 days to somewhere
February 27, 2016 — ONE month to FOCUS. I heard it takes thirty days to develop a habit. I have never been a big GOAL setter. Maybe it is my inner procrastinator or the fear of failure or the fear of success that has held me back from setting goals. semantics — the branch of linguistics and logic concerned with meaning But it also could just be a semantics issue for me. I would much rather spend my time pursuing a DREAM or PASSION than a “GOAL.” Goals feel like a homework assignment or a … [Read more...] about 30 days to somewhere

stop being insecure
February 25, 2016 5 days left of the blog challenge — time flies!! 12:58am—Central Standard Time. I have this pattern of writing with my blogs.

This usually includes random videos on facebook, and other random internet consumption. Sometimes this is pointless and other times it is part of my creative process. It is almost like I have to get that out my … [Read more...] about stop being insecure
