Life Requires a White Board

As people’s thoughts swirl about in conversation or the media, don’t you sometimes wish you could track them on a white board? Write them clearly, determine the bias, the expected outcomes and who would benefit. Then, who would be the loser in the deal? Is it fair? Is it benevolent or mean spirited? Would the future be better if it happened?
Lay it out in black and white for all to see.
I’m off for awhile to see family in the east. For sure, I’ll be getting photo shots and observing people while there. More later…

Ha, The Effects of Age

“Guitar players are like hookers, if you live long enough, you become respectable.”

I Keep Being Reminded, Thanks To Dr. Phil

All day I’ve entered into conversations that remind me of what Dr. Phil says, “We teach people how to treat us.” There are stages of maturity and some folks get stuck on the lower tiers. By that I mean they want to talk down to people, they take credit for something they didn’t do, they bully.
Courage is necessary to push back and when we do, the offender begins to deflate.

TODAY, And Tomorrow

“Just don’t worry about day-to-day. Live life to the fullest every day.The sun’s going to come out – always does.”

Lee Iacocca related his father’s motto
And so, time to buy flowers.

Gentle People

The world can be a tough environment to slog through and it can make a body tired. That is why it is fun to go out on a bright Saturday morning among the creative, gentle humans who run booths and frequent the Denver farmer’s markets. The goal is sharing friendly quality and obtaining a price sufficient to do it all again next week and next year.
The smiles, the chatter, the pets on pretty leashes are the benefits of participating.

Make a Lunch Date with Someone

Studies show that the happiest people are those who spend 4-6 hours with other people. I believe this because it causes us to expend energy thinking about and interacting in another person’s world for a change. Lunch outside in the sunshine makes everything so much nicer…no matter what it is.

Get The Photo…Now!

Get The Photo...Now!

All the times of our lives come once, get the picture. We think things will roll around again and again, they won’t. When the group is together, be the one to assemble the shot, check it, and get it right.
That time won’t come again because time rolls on.

True Maturity

“Stand up for your beliefs in a respectful, intelligent manner
There are few things more impressive to me than someone who doesn’t shy away from standing up for their beliefs — and then who can back up what they say with intelligent research while also keeping an open mind and listening to what others have to interject. By the time you’re 50, you should definitely have a pretty clear idea of where you stand on issues. Impress people by speaking out without sounding arrogant.” Huffingtonpost
So, speak up clearly.
Listen well and take it in.

What Do you Love?

What exactly is your passion? If you don’t know, you’d better find out. How much time have you put into discovering your current, true likes and dislikes?
They change, you know. We must add a “like” for every one we toss away. Give something a try and keep toiling until something happens.
Time is truly wasting, and we know how we feel about that.
