Apologies & Appreciation

“Appreciation is the highest form of prayer, for it acknowledges the presence of good wherever you shine the light of your thankful thoughts”
- Alan Cohen




Life's a beach

“You can’t leave footprints in the sands of time if your sitting on your butt. And who wants to leave butt prints in the sands of time?”

The Day My World Changed

“I am only one, but I am one. I can’t do everything, but I can do something.”

 - Edward Everett Hale

Last June, I spent two incredible weeks in Roatan, Honduras. If you’ve heard of the small Caribbean island, it’s probably because of the beautiful reef that surrounds it. Supposedly, it’s the second largest in the world. And it is incredible.  More…


New Day, New You

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”

Have you ever been stuck in a rut? Nothing really wrong, per say, but you don’t feel like you’re moving forward? I’ve been feeling a little like that lately. Sorta like I’m just spinning my wheels.

 - Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love

Yesterday I was having breakfast with friends, a married couple, I hadn’t seen in a long time. These are two incredible folks on their own journey to change themselves for the better and they have been a hugely positive influence on me.

I yearn to explore,
The lonely places.
Far off lands,
Forgotten spaces.
Touch the edge of humankind,
And return to share,
The beauty I find.
