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

Have Substance, Be Deep

Quite a few years back, I went with my brother and a friend to a local boat race, The Tarheel Regatta.  The lake was not large enough for the high-end racing boats, but it was still quite entertaining to see some of the mid-to-smaller classes of boats racing.  It was something different, and have always…… Continue reading Have Substance, Be Deep

A Life of Mindfulness

The concept of mindfulness may bring about thoughts of Buddhist monks, mastering the practice or meditation on a journey to enlightenment and wisdom.  Perhaps the old monk at the top of the mountain, meditating on the meaning of life comes to mind.  Focusing on a single thought or idea, as we empty out of minds…… Continue reading A Life of Mindfulness

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

Dreams, Goals, and Passion

The heroes of many of my friends as a child were the usual celebrities, musicians, or sports figures.  I was no different.  Mom and dad took my brothers and I to many air shows, but a trip to the Kennedy Space Center way back in the 1970’s escalated astronauts to heroic levels.  Seeing the massive…… Continue reading Dreams, Goals, and Passion

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
