Thank you Jesus, hallelujah, praise be and pass the whiskey. I stepped outside this morning and it was only 90 degrees and 52% humidity. That folks, is FALL in Texas! I pranced down my driveway with a lil’ bounce in my step and headed to the trailhead for my morning walk. This beat the hell
It was early morning on Padre Island and I had already decided to get on the road and make the 6 hour drive home to Houston after ringing in the New Year with one of my oldest and dearest friends on South Padre Island. The weather had not been our best friend this trip, high
Captains log: January 18, 2022 It has taken me 18 days to settle into this new year. Not exactly a record but worth making note of. I have newly turned 59 years old. My cholesteral is finally too high for my doctor’s liking and so I join the ranks of other genteel statin-heads my age
You hear the words “self-care” and visions of day spas, bottomless mimosas, and naps by the pool fly before your mind’s eye like a sizzle reel on youtube. You never think about the un-fun side of self-care. But alas, here I sit in my pj’s in my “home” office making that dreaded call to the

Sometimes the bridges with the least risk are the hardest to cross. There is no rushing torrent beneath it to sweep us away if we lose our footing. It is neither too tall to scale nor too long to travel. It is simply a break in the path and yet we avoid it at all
Confidence doesn’t just happen. It comes about from challenging our comfort zones and expanding our awareness. Confidence is the manifest expression of knowledge. The KNOWING of who YOU are.

Yes, even THAT guy. It takes so little energy to be kind to man or beast. When you commit to being KIND, you cannot put stipulations on it. You can’t say, “I’ll only be kind to people I know”, or “I’ll only be kind to people in my neighborhood, or church or school”. To truly
To be able to recieve you must be able to give. It is a cycle, a circle that must be completed to continue to spin. We have been conditioned to think that giving is noble…and it is. Remember the old saying , “It’s is better to give than to recieve”, remember that? I heard it
Come dance upon the power lines between the stars. Visit them a while. Linger to enjoy, then, take the hand of your angel into the new “NOW”. Hede Marker 1989 Many of us are quilty of living either in the past or waiting for the “right time” in the future. NOW is not new, it
I have to tell you that suddenly I realized – I AM LOVED- For years I used this Love. I let it flow through me and gave it forth to child, to friend, to all that needed it. But inexplicably “I” never took from it and so became love-anemic. I thought myself perhaps “unworthy” ?
This is a piece of me. For you. For the Earth. For Sky God. For the underdog. Give us what we need. Give us nothing. For in that nothing we find what fills us. Within life. Within death. Our peace is coming it is heaven sent. Peace in me. Peace in you. Living this daydream.
