New Rules Hokey Pokey And Me

The hokey pokey. Who remembers the hokey pokey? You put your left foot in. You put your left foot out. You put your left foot in and you shake it all about. You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself about…that’s what it’s all about. And it builds from something like that. I rememberContinue reading “New Rules Hokey Pokey And Me”

Where To Go Next

It has been a while since I last wrote. I hope everyone is good! And If not, that is OK. It is OK to not be OK. This is something I want to scream from the highest and the lowest places on Earth for all to hear. We need to make this idea the norm.Continue reading “Where To Go Next”

Calling Solo…Solo Party Of One

I recently saw a quote that alluded to being comfortable with yourself when you are by yourself. Naturally it got me thinking. Just about everything does anymore, but this one I have dwelled on for some time. Am I comfortable with myself? It’s time to dive into the idea of a solo party of one.Continue reading “Calling Solo…Solo Party Of One”

The Weekend Of The Three Pillars Of Excellence

Over this past weekend I was able to spend time with three huge pillars of my life and I came out alive! I came out more than alive!

Music And The Pandemic: A Way To Bridge The Gap

I have written a number of times about the effects of the pandemic and how it has affected my mental health. Even if you don’t write or do anything like this, I’m guessing you have described the pandemic in a way that describes how it has specifically affected you and your mental health. At leastContinue reading “Music And The Pandemic: A Way To Bridge The Gap”

Sailing Into Uncharted Waters

Imagine being an explorer. You are sailing the seven seas in search of places yet to be discovered. You have your maps displayed across the table and you have studied them thoroughly.

Just Breathe… Especially When Confusion Sets In

Sometimes life hits us. And then it hits us again and again. And just when you think you’ve had all you can take, it hits you one more time. This is exactly how I feel right now. I figured it would end after the very weird holiday season, but life wasn’t finished with us andContinue reading “Just Breathe… Especially When Confusion Sets In”

Holiday Season 2021: Weird, Different, Good, (Did I Say Weird?)

The Christmas and New Year’s season blew in like a freight train barreling down the tracks and you are sitting at the train crossing waiting for it to pass. You can hear it. You can see it.

The Giant Elephant In My Room

Throughout my blogging journey, I have written a lot. I feel like I have covered so many different aspects of my journey.

I have really enjoyed writing these blogs as itContinue reading “The Giant Elephant In My Room”

Dreading An Event Which Ends Up Not Being Dreadful (How Is This Even Possible?)

Jump on a plane they said. Fly down to Orlando they said. Meet up with a couple hundred of your closest work peers over a couple of days they said. Eeeek! Eeeek is right! This is the reality I was faced with this past week. I have been dreading this moment ever since it appearedContinue reading “Dreading An Event Which Ends Up Not Being Dreadful (How Is This Even Possible?)”
