    We Can Do Anything

    When confronted with an urgency or necessity that is clearly humanly possible but still seems beyond me, my circle of friends, or a work group tasked to get the deed done, I think about Sunday, September 3, 1967. On that day, at 4:50 am to be precise, Sweden went from using the...

    Appreciating Being Alive And Part Of The Great Big Whole

    It's Relieving To Find My Positive Inner Self Again.

    More than that, I work at least daily on

    maintaining and advancing a positive mental alignment. There are so many things that would trap you into focusing on things you cannot change, or problems you cannot directly solve, but when you focus on "how can I do this" rather than the negatives, then you can create a...

    The Super Bowl

    I am one American testosterone driven man who couldn't care less about the Super Bowl tonight. The more I hear about it, the more I dislike it. I even heard the Major League baseball Network talk about it. When I was a kid there was never so much hoopla over it.
