Press one for happy birthday

It is not for lack of content I have taken some time from writing this blog. If anything, there is an exceeding amount of content; so much so, it is challenging to know where to begin. I have had the good fortune of two visits to Manhattan in the past six months. There are so … Continue reading

Make a life you love

I’ve taken about ten steps back from social media, recently, with the thought of making available more time to paint. Two and a half years ago, I went back to school for my real estate license.

I believe in thinking forward with positive, for what we want and what we see are powerful indicators of where we are going. There is the common story of a man who did not like the idea of growing up … Continue reading

It’s Like Magic

It was five years ago, nearly to the date, that I found myself climbing a hill outside of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, following my Golden Retriever, Mila.

The Adventure is Yours

Sometimes life moves fast. Slow down. Slow down, if you can. Doesn’t seem to always be a choice, but maybe it is. Maybe it is in our control what we say yes to. What are your top ten things to accomplish today? Are they work or relationship related? Sometimes the best thing is to just … Continue reading
