What My Blog Says About Me.

Lets be honest. I don’t put a whole lot of thought into my blog. I don’t have an editorial strategy of what I’m going to post. I do, however, put a lot of “me” into this space. The sub-theme, “Heaping Scoops Of My Brain,” isn’t just clever witticism, This space is really all about what…

Why Do We Care?

I was talking with a friend recently and the conversation turned to their feelings about how they were going to be viewed by another group. My instant reaction: “Eff them.” If they’re too busy spending time judging you for your opinions to actually enjoy you as a friend, why would you give them the time…

A change will come…

I’ve had a lot of change happen all at once. Not that I haven’t had time to prepare for the changes, they’ve just all happened at the same time. Used under creative commons, Thank you AlicePopkorn2!

The Fall

I like to be that guy. I like to be the guy you can rely on. I like to be the guy who people have confidence in, who people look to. I’m not good at leaning on others. I usually like to deal with life as it comes. When it rains, I hear the music…

Taking Stock…

Should old acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind? Should old acquaintance be forgot and days of old lang syne? 2010 has been an interesting year for me. Lately, I’ve had to take a deep breath and take stock of all the things in my life which have impacted me in a good, bad,…

Solo-Christmas

“You can’t be alone on Christmas” I heard this many times in the last week. I didn’t have any plans for Christmas. My family is close and we planned to have Christmas on New Years Day. So I didn’t have any plans for Christmas. (Used under creative commons licensing. Photo Credit: Scottfeldstein) As I woke…

Erased

In the past weeks I’ve had a lot of time to think, reflect and mull-over so many things in (and out) of my life. I find myself with a little less patience, but I’m full of love. I’ve spent many days thanking the powers that be for all the things I’ve been privileged to be…

Overwhelmed and Tethered.

Wow. What the span of two weeks does to your perception of everything. Sometimes you’re overwhelmed when a thing comes, and you do not realize the magnitude of the affair at that moment. When you get away from it, you wonder, did it really happen to you? – Marian Anderson Over the last couple of…

Friendship

“True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils. Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island … to find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep him is a blessing.” – Baltasar Gracian Yesterday, I got an interesting call from a…

My Momma Always Told Me…

I was thinking recently about all the advice I’ve ever received both personally and professionally. There is one thing that has always stuck with me; from my mom, who said, “If you want it bad enough, you’ll work hard enough to get it.” I’ve been thinking about that for the last couple of days and…
