Just Visiting an Injury

On December 17, 2015 I went in for third operation on my hand. For seven years I had a stitch poking into my skin from inside my thumb knuckle. Every time I bumped or brushed my thumb it was like getting poked with a toothpick, or maybe more like a fork. The stitches required at […]

Present Danger

They caught my attention because I could hear them enjoying their day just outside my window. There was three of them working together sharing a little camaraderie as they soaked up the sunshine. I admired their work and the fact they were working away without a care in the world. Their work was efficient and […]

Beyond Hope

I wrote this blog because it stood in stark contrast to what I tell people as a motivational speaker. I tell people to persevere, to press through adversity, and not to give up.

Hindsight – Insight in HD

People say hindsight is 20/20. I think the current way to view hindsight is Insight in HD. The images and realities appear so vivid, somehow much clearer and more defined then when they first occurred. The HD image can help intensify feelings of joy, satisfaction, remorse, guilt, shame and regret. The negative image is often […]
