Fellow Travelers

We are fellow travelers hurtling through space at the breakneck speed of 67,000 miles per hour. It’s no wonder we feel the need to hold on to things so tightly. But what are we holding on to? Life is a big place. 197 million square miles of endless possibility beckon to be found, loved and […]

Soul Resolution

Congratulations, you made it through 2017! Now what? It was a bumpy and unpredictable year for many. A lot of people woke up to a world transformed. And they weren’t happy about it.

The Christmas Spirit

Christmas shows up on the same day every year. So why does it always seem to take us by surprise? Sharon asked herself that question as she rushed around after work doing some last minute errands.

Being Present

Lets drop in on two good friends, Bob and Jim, in the kind of conversation that, unfortunately, happens all too often these days. Bob says, “You know, I’ve been thinking lately. It’s time for a change. Work is stale.” “My life is stale.” Interrupts Jim, head down scrolling through his phone. Bob continues, “I thought […]

Nice Guys Finish Last

Do nice guys always finish last? If so, I’d like to know why. Being a generally nice guy I have a vested interest. I don’t want to finish last. Nobody does. So where did the phrase come from and how did it become so ingrained in our collective consciousness? In 1946, Brooklyn Dodgers manager Lee […]
