Inside…

Remember the old saying: ‘It’s what’s on the inside that counts’. I thought that meant how good of a person I was or should strive to be. My efforts. Then came a time when I read this: “We are all infected and impure with…

Such a Difference…

As I ponder words – a storm is brewing. Strong – full of wind, rain, lightening – a force for destruction. Will we be in it’s path? What will it reap? Questions swirl like a hurricane’s eye. But time and again over the last…

What’s it worth?

Worth. That’s a heavy word. So many contexts. The value of an item for purchase versus our budget. The time required for an outcome versus our schedule. Encounters that cause us to pause and ask: is it worth it? Consciously or unconsciously we weigh…

In Between…

1938-2011, July 23-27, choose a span of time. Notice the commonality: the hyphen. From point a to point b. A dash, in time. We live here in between. Between our first breath on earth and our last. Time here never seems long enough. Mortality…

Delay Tactics…

Nap time or bedtime – words that signal little boys to suddenly find many things to do. In the end maybe they were successful delaying closing those eyes, but it eventually happened. I learned a life lesson recently that I wish I had embraced…

Then Monday…

Ever have one of those? A Monday – the one you weren’t expecting but thought you had all planned? Not too long ago Tuesday was supposed to be a blue sky, low temp, low humidity South Florida day (those get rarer this time of…

When Light Hits…

Early morning, no lights on yet, I reached into the cabinet to find a towel – the stripes looked dull gray. I knew they were red. Science says color is┬ásensations on the eye as a result of the way the object reflects or emits…
