It's September and we're still here... Because sometimes still being here is something to be proud of. So I thought it would be a good time to share some recent photos that I took in my yard and the park. I love finding trees and branches that look like animals if you look at them…Read more NGTS – Pt. 80
I am so excited to be walking in the park almost every day now. We're still not going on our longer, more strenuous hikes yet - my knee still isn't back to 100% - but I'm almost up to 10,000 steps every day. I'm still not sure whether 10,000 steps is actually helpful or just…Read more What Do We Miss?
I finished reading The City by Dean Koontz the other day and it's taken me quite some time to process the story. It was a typical Koontz book filled with deep characters, hope for the future despite what is going on in the world, and magic. I didn't want to write a review of the…Read more The True Beauty of Art
Credit: pinterest.com I have loved photography for as long as I can remember. To be able to capture what we see in a realistic way is such a powerful gift. And to then be able to share with others what we see and how we see it is magical. It can change perspectives. And if…Read more Change Your Perspective
It's been a while since I've written or read about stoicism but with all the craziness going on right now I thought this quote was a great reminder. Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth. Marcus Aurelius We get so crazy busy and distracted…Read more Opinion, Not Fact. Perspective, Not Truth.
Could there possibly be another acronym more appropriate for life than WIP? Could anything describe the hell that life sometimes is better than Work In Progress? Because depending on how you look at it you can be filled with hope or despair or just plain exhaustion at the thought of all the unfinished projects of…Read more Work In Progress
Hind sight is 20/20. In other words, we see our pasts perfectly... We can look back on our lives and see our mistakes, see opportunities taken and missed, see what we could have, should have, done better. In other words we can look back and gain wisdom and insight to avoid making the same mistakes…Read more Is Hind Sight 20/20?
What a wonderful, glorious day it is today! There is no particular reason. I shouldn't need a reason other than that I'm still here. Sometimes that's enough. Everything else is gravy. Including being able to write. I write a lot about perspective and focus. The reason for that is because it is unbelievably easy to…Read more What a wonderful, glorious day!
10 days in... 10 days and most of us have either stopped the new good habits or, if you're like me, you haven't even started them. What's that saying, 'the road to Hell is paved with good intentions'. Well, I laugh in the face of that saying, because we're only 10 days into the new…Read more Day 10 or Day 1?
I have learned something interesting in these past six months. If I don't have a mind-numbing, soul-crushing, complete waste of time job to go to every day it becomes ever more difficult to focus on my writing. Or even want to write. But I'm not complaining. Really. I just find that unless I'm completely honest…Read more *Update* Reconciliation – Book 3 Fallacy Trilogy
