Comfortable with the Silence

Comfortable with the Silence

It was dark last night when I took one of my dogs up the road to pee.  I live near the end of a cul de sac, so we often walk that way to avoid any traffic and find the perfect spot.  The dog was particularly curious, which is to say he was taking a long time, when I...

Creating My Own Practice

It's dark in my house right now.  I am sitting in my home office looking at this computer screen.  It's a part of my morning routine, and I am working to "push out some good" before I get to the rest of my day.  That is why I have started writing this blog again on a...

What Are You Willing To Do?

One of the biggest problems for many people in 2020 (beyond real health concerns) is that it's given us all a REALLY great excuse. I say that because COVID-19 is a real thing.  It has caused real issues.  The challenges that many people and industries are facing are...

Perfection Is The Enemy of Progress

Perfection Is The Enemy of Progress

This story starts with a small group of people that wanted to make a difference.  I love stories like that. The group gathered together to discuss the state of disrepair that one of our city parking lots was in.  The idea, as the discussion began, was to get a group...

My iPhone updated last night

My iPhone updated last night. Before you groan, let me say this.  I love that the change has been made to automatically update during the night.  That makes a ton of sense to me.  In the past, the notifications popped up on my phone at completely inconvenient times...
