Be careful what you ingestJan 29, 2018
( I wrote this in 2014 and it is pertinent today)
BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU INGEST!!!
Bad sound can be as detrimental as bad
food. Yesterday i listened to hip-hop on my morning (only my second run
in over 6 months) to get me pumped. My ear holes were bombarded with
self loathing, deceit, misogyny, and oh so much more and this set the
tone for my day. My day was okay even great by some standards but seen
through that negative veil it was horrible. Today I went for a run
listening to my calm meditation Pandora station in the rain. What
a difference a day makes. My body hurt embarking on my third
consecutive run in three days. I will just say, angels lifted me. I ran
farther, not faster, I finished stronger. I feel great. What does today
have for me? I don't know but I am ready to embrace the unknown. Be
careful what you ingest, if it will make you better stronger, empowered,
loving, caring, whole take it in. Feed your soul and your heart will

In the space between you and me
where nothing appears to be
there are millions upon millions of particles connecting you to me.

sometimes the best way to speak my mind is to remain silent.
Farewell to a friendOct 12, 2017

My heart is heavy with the death of a great friend. Stanley Lynde shared his dreams and passions with me and an entire community. Many a day we would discuss the metaphysical and the motorcycle. I will miss his honesty, his laughs, his hugs, his friendship and so much more. I will forever have the memories.
A time to grieveSep 12, 2017
Culturally we pay little attention to grieving or the grieving process. Many of us do not know what it means to grieve. What is grieving? I could give a dictionary definition but instead I will dig deeper and pull an answer from my soul. Grieving is the honoring or celebrating of a loss. Grieving is the acknowledgment of change in a situation due to the erasure or removal of a feeling, item and/or being. Often grieving is used in association with the death of someone. We can also grieve for the loss of an idea, an ideal, a fantasy. The grieving process can be and is different for each individual and is vitally important for emotional health and well being. Grieving is often seen as a dark place, a place that should be avoided. Grieving is an important place, a place of learning. As manure is beneficial for the garden grieving can be beneficial toward personal growth. Just as there is a time to grieve now is my time to take a closer look at grieving.
