Details

I make an attempt to notice the details of the mundane and functional things we do each and every day. For me it’s where the magic is. It helps to ground a little better, and keeps me trying to re-interpret things rather than just talking them at face value.

learning

If not always coming from a place of learning then what is there and where are we? It’s hard to do. and keep top-of-mind, but the more we can try the more we will move forward in some way even if we feel like we are not moving at all.

It all started when…

I was born one day–two years before this picture was taken. I can’t say as I remember this day, or much before that time. You might wonder why I have included this picture. I like the idea of the moment it was taken, and how my collective life experience has gotten me wherever I currently “am”. I see it is what I am about, or have become.

 

Living in the now and the next…

Today will be different than tomorrow, and what seems important or pertinent now, may be completely irrelevant in just a few minutes. Does anyone really know what they are about? Sure we have ideas of what we are, does that make them real? If I call myself something enough times do I become it? All I really know is I am here.
