The Good Old Days

Sometimes I catch myself drifting back in time.  Thinking of a moment in my past and thinking how good things were.  For me, it’s playing little league baseball, riding our bikes around the neighborhood, or just goofing off with friends.  It’s something we all do at some point in time.  Reflecting on something positive and…… Continue reading The Good Old Days

The Wisdom of Silence

A wise man once said nothing. I saw this quote a while back, and found that it really spoke to me.  As an inherent quiet and somewhat introverted person, I can identify with the deeper meaning.  I’ve been around, worked with, and worked for people who loved to brag and boast.  Listening to these people,…… Continue reading The Wisdom of Silence

Giving Respect

I grew up in Delray Beach, Florida, which has a healthy retirement community.  Riding the car with my mom and dad, it was a running prediction that a car approaching in at the intersection may or may not stop or simply proceed into the traffic.  The approaching car would more often than not, pull out…… Continue reading Giving Respect

Planting Seeds

I’m a firm believer in that actions today, even small ones, will always have ramifications down the road. While reading an article recently, this quote from Nelson Henderson was featured as part of it. This captures the essence of forward thinking and having a vision. What are we doing now, that will help others after…… Continue reading Planting Seeds

Morality is Timeless

Should we give people in the past leeway in terms of morality and ethics?  I’ve often thought about this growing up, while in school, and even at times in my adult life.  With the unrest ongoing in our country this year, these questions come back to me.  I often hear that “things were different back…… Continue reading Morality is Timeless

In Memory of Kathi

Life always seems to come down to numbers and stats.  Each year, numbers of children are born, numbers of people die.  We divide our populations into generations, boomers, x, millennial, etc…  A certain number of people will contract a disease or sickness.  Stats document people affected by the coronavirus or the flu.  War seems to…… Continue reading In Memory of Kathi

The Building of Integrity and Character

Throughout my career in the information technology field, I’ve lost count how many times I upgraded computer labs.  The time required for disconnecting and dismantling the computers were far quicker than the setup of the new machines.  New computer setups require extensive time and effort to properly get the machines set up, configured, and keeping…… Continue reading The Building of Integrity and Character

Embrace All Learning Examples

Think of life as just a long string of learning opportunities.  Individuals learn and grow through all stages of life, experiences building upon experiences.  Humans are simply a culmination of what they have learned and experienced from birth until death. Learning derives from experience.  When someone fails an exam in school, the lesson learned is…… Continue reading Embrace All Learning Examples

Beyond the Cathedral

We watched with awe and sadness as the fires ravaged the cathedral of Notre Dame.  Millions watched, transfixed as the spire crumbled into the inferno.  Crowds gathered along the streets in Paris to watch a special place of church and history crumble.  Watching the clips on the news and reading the feeds, I felt a…… Continue reading Beyond the Cathedral
