Meet Ted!

CuPcaKe LiNer BucKet LiSt?

TheY Call It MagiC

  They call it magic—when it all comes together for a moment, 38 minutes, a couple of months, or for your own, uneven life.   The piece of time is not important. It’s just that you feel it–you know it. It’s not predicted or planned, and that’s the cool part. That’s what makes it magic.…

UuuuGh…with a Capital G and a Wowwwwwww!

UuuuGh… a heavy sigh ending with a capital “G”… a sigh of disappointment.   It’s also the sigh of no response. The sigh of me thinking this was a cool guy—we connected—he got my humor and played back. He is passionate about what he does, as am I. —We told stories—we laughed—a lot. He’s into…

CousiNs…

    Cousins…they sort of look like us. We have that gene thing going on. Maybe you have to squint your eyes a tiny bit to make it so—but a part of you is in their face, or a lot of you is in their walk. Maybe that’s why it’s so easy to think they…

ChEeRs! Here’s to squeaky newness and adieu to our 2015 journey! Maybe there was too much champagne last night, or maybe you were holed up with a cold, but it is a new year today—a promise of 365 days of an undiscovered trail to travel as you wish. If last year’s road was heavy, it…

“Knowing”…MeRrY ChRisTmAs & HaPpY HoLiDaYs!

I woke up this morning “knowing”. I immediately felt a realized, warm hug deep within my heart—and I experienced the best Christmas gift I could ever imagine.

disappointment…

Joe flew back on Saturday instead of Tuesday. Done. Disappointment. It is one of those soft feelings—it’s not sharp, nor does it have hard corners like fear. But it is one of those vibes that lies in the background on the sofa. It’s not loud, but you still feel it. It hangs out there quietly. It…
