Take a Hike

2019-11-19T18:19:57-05:00

Hetch Hetchy at Yosemite - November 4, 2019   "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." African Proverb Yosemite National Park is breathtaking, especially in autumn. The grand valley, the daunting cliffs, the sunset bouncing off the giant walls of granite - it's majestic!  In early November, [...]

How to Run a Race

2019-09-25T09:41:21-04:00

(above: Flying Pig Fans - 4th & Garrard, Covington, Kentucky - May 5, 2019) Want to run a race? You're not alone. Motivation: Set a Goal Last October, I made a deal with my best friend, “I’ll run a 5K, if you lead that group.” We'd been chatting about things on our girls' weekend in [...]

Pic: My determined little girl marching off to Pre-K. Aidan Elaine, August 1996 (Repost from 8/2018)   My Facebook newsfeed is loaded with adorable pictures of little ones heading off to school, teens hitting the high school circuit and parents dropping their "babies" on college campuses. I remember every phase of my kids' schooling, from [...]

Why Mission?

2019-07-12T11:05:57-04:00

{Reposted from 2017} Every wildly successful organization has a strong mission. They know why they exist. They know what their purpose is and have a vision for taking it into the world. Those organizations and leaders stick to their guns until the mission is accomplished or die trying! In "Start with Why," Simon Sinek states [...]

Andre

2019-04-24T05:52:19-04:00

above: Spring of 1978 Andre was my brother. Today (4-24-19) is his 54th Birthday. He was two years older than me, but I was the responsible one. That gap grew even more in our “adulting” years. While I was steady, building a family and a home, he was unmoored and slipping away. None of us [...]

The truth behind this picture

2019-05-04T08:29:32-04:00

This is a pic of me on tv. Whhhaaattt? How'd that happen? Truth is: Being on the morning show was never a goal for me. Since last summer, I've done several short segments on local tv. I was invited to be on the air because of a blog I'd written called, Coming Out, a friend suggested I be interviewed [...]

Sealed with a kiss.

2019-02-14T14:43:27-05:00

The Golden Rule says, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” I’ve heard the problem with the Golden Rule is that we actually do it. How can this be a bad thing? It is, if we don’t love ourselves. How can we possibly give what we do not possess? Is loving [...]

Give yourself an A in 2019

2019-02-08T18:41:14-05:00

Photo: Halo on a Mountain - taken on 8/29/2018 while hiking in Mt. Rainier National Park. This was one of my favorite days of 2018.   What if you were guaranteed an A in the coming year? What's an A? It’s hitting the mark. It’s getting what you want. It's making a difference. What does that [...]

Stone Soup

2018-11-21T09:48:58-05:00

Raise your hand if you read Stone Soup as a kid? I was around seven or eight when I read it and remember being really miffed. I thought it was unfair and didn’t like it. Stone Soup is a fable about hungry strangers who enter a town and tell everyone that they are making stone [...]
