My perspectives on topics which don’t fit into one of my main interests.

A Thoughtful Reminder about Change

I am reading a meditation from The Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday every day. This thoughtful reminder was from yesterday’s meditation. Whether things are going pretty well or pretty badly, it can change in an instant.
John and Aida Covid Booster Day

Third Shot in the Bank…

My mother-in-law and I got our Pfizer Covid booster shots today. Our primary care doctor had a drive-through in her parking lot. We were in and out in less than 30 minutes.
Beautiful World by Kenny Chesney

Beautiful World — This Friday’s Song

It has been a tough summer. The pandemic we hoped would be behind us continues to cause disruption and death. Despite or maybe because of that, I picked Beautiful World by Kenny Chesney for this Friday's song.
Blue Heron Flying

Reflections on a Sunday morning walk

It is very easy to get caught up in everything going on in life and not take the time to relax and appreciate the beauty in the world. I am really guilty of this.
Miami from the Air July 2021

Flying again…

Teresa and I took our first flight in over two years this week. It was just a short flight from Tallahassee down to Miami.
Declaration of Independence Header

We hold these truths…

Wishing everyone a safe and relaxed Independence Day holiday weekend. As you celebrate, take a few minutes to actually read the Declaration and reflect.
If You Are Reading This Memorial Day 2021

If You’re Reading This …

Please take a moment today to remember each of the men and women who left their lives and families behind to protect and defend our values, our way of life, our freedoms, and the Constitution of the United States.

Perspectives on a trip around the sun

May has always seemed more like the "start" of a year for me. It is probably because I have always used my birthday to reflect on the last year and plan the one ahead. Or maybe there is another reason?

Celebrating Our Tenth Anniversary

As with many things in the past year, our tenth anniversary was colored by the ongoing pandemic. Thought I would take a moment to share our experience and thank those who helped us celebrate.
Bless the Broken Road by Rascal Flats

Bless the Broken Road — This Friday’s song

This Friday's Song is Bless the Broken Road by Rascal Flats. Ten years ago today, I married my 'meant to be'. Thank you, my darling Teresa, for being who you are and for waiting for me at the end of that broken road.

2nd Shot in the Bank (well in the arm anyway)

My mother-in-law Aida and I got out second shot of the Covid-19 vaccine today. Another well-executed process by the Leon County Department of Health. Thanks to all for the hard work and a job well done.
