Feeling rather thankful today … How cool is that to be able to go for a walk every morning with my dog. To be able to walk! How cool is that to be able to hear the spirit-lifing cry of the hawk, daily, and the comforting sounds of a Mourning Dove’s coo on the same walk? To be able to hear. How cool is that to be able to see the sunlight scatter and form a rainbow in the mist…

A coworker of mine, Rhonda, gave me high praise today. She said: You are bad for this environment. Nice! Now, the rest of the story. I work for a large bank. Within this large bank is a large investment bank. The people inside of the investment bank are, shall we say, driven. It’s all about money, money, and making more money.

I had never met a Grandmaster before and had no idea what to expect. Students who have attended his annual workshop previously, all said that it was…

Tuesday night is our Boot Camp night where we learn about healthy habits for eating and for weight loss. Before we started class, three of us got called out of the class. Anna, Adam, and me. We had no idea what for. I immediately thought: Hmmmm, were we ever together getting into mischief? 🙂 As it turned out, it was a good thing. They couldn’t decide who to pick for Student of the Month, so they picked all 3 of…

Yesterday, Tony said that he wanted to get up early and get a good start on golfing, while it was cool outside. Good idea. I woke up at my usual time of around 6:30, woke him and his friend, Brandon up at around 7:00. The first thing that Tony said to me was: Ummmm. Poppa. They have a dress code. No athletic shorts or t-shirts. Huh? I thought we were going to play golf! I had him call just to…
