Considering Success or Has it Returned?

Hello on an early Friday morning, It has been a long week . . . starting out with a sinus infection, one of my patented fevers, and deciding to take a day and a half off as sick days, now for the second night in a row, I have managed to sweat through sheets andContinue reading ” Considering Success or Has it Returned?”

A Mid-Summer’s Night in a Dream

Hello on an early Wednesday  morning, It has been some time since I posted, and if you know me that means that I need to get some order to my life. It could also be that I am trying to do too much. Someone who has known me 2/3 of my life, albeit from aContinue reading “A Mid-Summer’s Night in a Dream”

Show me the Way

Hello from my upstairs, It has been a day of reflection and a day of feeling I am too far away from where I  believe  I should be. As I was telling my colleague, Mark, this morning as we shared our thoughts about Dan and Mike, or Drs. Riordan and Levy, a bishop might have demanded the resignationContinue reading “Show me the Way”

Remembering and Wishing

Hello on a Sunday afternoon, an anniversary the 21st Century’s Day of Infamy for America, I am in my office and working on a number of things, planning to be here more than most of today’s remaining hours.

Believing the Best

Good early morning, It is 3:29 a.m. and I have been awake for a bit . This past week has been a whirlwind. I am supposed to be in Kentucky right now, but that took a back seat to other more pressing things. Hurricanes disrupted travel, and delayed connections meant sleeping in an airport beforeContinue reading “Believing the Best”

Realities

Good early morning, It is about 2:30 a.m. and I am awake and thinking. I received a message today(technically yesterday) that a former teaching colleague, and co-Vietnam veteran, passed away. He was only a couple years older than me and we actually served in Vietnam at a similar time. However, he was in the bush where IContinue reading “Realities”

Past Experiences~Present Ramifications

Good morning from San Francisco, It is not quite 6:00 a.m. here in the Bay Area, but I am awake ( my internal clock is still three hours later and on East coast time. I wanted to go to a chocolate and wine function last night, but I promised Marco I would be in bedContinue reading “Past Experiences~Present Ramifications”

Conferencing and Remembering

As I begin to write this, I am actually blogging on my phone and in the Detroit airport. While I have, perhaps, flown though DTW more than any other airport (MSP could be first), it has been some time since I have flown to the U.P.. I remember flying with Dale Sullivan to Atlanta fromContinue reading “Conferencing and Remembering”
