A Hiatus, But It Was More Than That

There comes a time when you are rolling right along, the ideas are coming from all directions, and then WHAM…NOTHING! It’s strange. The ideas just disappear. It’s not just writers block as this has affected everything I have been creating. Writing, art, videos, podcasts…everything! I call this a creative block. It has hit me kindContinue reading “A Hiatus, But It Was More Than That”

The Creek Flows On

One of my favorite childhood memories is going camping in Missouri with my family. We went with multiple other families, so there was a good size group of us. The main draw was the tubing and the canoeing we would do on the creek that flowed next to the campground. We also swam a ton.Continue reading “The Creek Flows On”

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! It was three unique, but equally great, experiences in every sense of the word.  I spent time with part of my core on Thursday. An old buddyContinue reading “The Weekend Of The Three Pillars Of Excellence”

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. You have studied them to the point they are burned into your brain. But there are parts of the map that aren’t clear.Continue reading “Sailing Into Uncharted Waters”

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. You have to be patient with it. It shakes the ground. You can’t ignore it. And then itContinue reading “Holiday Season 2021: Weird, Different, Good, (Did I Say Weird?)”
