On Fears…

I find it’s often easier to be blind to the deeply seated motivating factors of my mind that drive my life; ignorance truly is bliss.

More on Work…

I’ve been thinking about ‘work’ lately. And defining it’s not easy for me. Sure, It’s easy to take the common worldly description of what pays you the money, a place where I go & clock in & do a thing trading my time for money. I’ve been contemplating deeper definitions of work a lot lately,…

On Conversations of Faith…

I am blessed to have conversations on faith often. I have them in person, over the phone, in small groups. While seeking to grow, search and reflect, I spend much of my time reading a wide variety of spiritual books, listening to audiobooks & podcasts, watching sermons, reading devotionals and daily emails. But still, there…

On Love & Country…

In my lifetime, our country has not seen such tumultuous divisive times as we are currently facing. I find it difficult to even pay attention to what is going on in the world amid the pain & suffering & fighting & chaos. Unlike any other time in my life, I am torn between complete and…

On this cow…

I really like this cow. He’s just the damn cutest cow I’ve ever seen. I love his shaggy long hair. I love his stubborn smirk. I love how he’s just hanging out at the beach. This cow seems to know who he his. I wish this cow was my cow friend. Oh, and please don’t…

On Grace & Flow…

You know when you have it, and you feel it when you don’t. When I’m working & living from a place of grace, things happen in a most spiritually guided, simple manner. And when I’m not and I’m forcing things, I feel it. I feel the tension in my actions, I feel the resistance in…

On Music, Noise & Focus…

I try a lot of things to be the most focused & productive I can be. I like to maximize the time I spend on writing, editing and project development, so I’ll take any extra help I can get to keep me on task. Less time behind a computer means more time outside! Recently I’ve…

On Giving Of Yourself…

Most days it just feels like I’m running around doing a bunch of fun stuff. It often looks like fun, but it’s also service to my fellow man, whether that’s out on a search or otherwise being available to help. Today, I got to help a friend out of a jam when he was a…

On Appreciation…

  As I thanked him with the full depth of my heart’s gratitude his eyes smiled with anĀ appreciation of the acknowledgment. It didn’t cost a dime or take a minute for the fleeting dialogue but the interaction of intimate heartful truths can now be carried by both. I try to go out of my way…

On Commitment & Practice…

This year, I’m committed to writing more. I already write a lot, but more precisely I’m committing to publish more. Whether it’s just a daily word or note here, a longer post on my website, freelance articles, social commentaries, travel & adventure posts, poems or book projects that I’m working on, the goal this year…

On Snow & Silence…

I love the snow; its silence soothes my soul. Tomorrow’s forecast is for snow & ice, and I’m like a kid the night before Christmas. Today I look to see beauty in all things; I aim to see God everywhere. I see Him in nature and in people; in things said and unsaid. In sounds…

On Noise…

I don’t handle noise well. Like not at all. TV’s, crowds, buzzards, dingers, screams or whatever it is…If you are ever able to get quiet, pay attention, release restlessness, sit or be quiet, you may notice how noisy this world is everywhere we turn. It’s become the norm. We need to find God, and he…
