We all wobble and it is all good :)

Some days it is just hard to find that happy place even for a person that has spent years learning and knowing how to turn their thoughts around. I woke up this morning dreaming about a lady I loved very deeply. I have worked the loss through my whole box of tools and let go yet for some reason I woke up early this morning with her in a dream. I think I spent most of the morning trying to forget the dream even though just like any other thought I choose not to embrace I know it is better to acknowledge it and let it go.

I don’t want to say I had a bad day or I wasn’t happy I was for the most part a happy me all day! I broke out my happy face and I started working on one of my book projects.

Then I needed a hug… I gave myself a hug!

Then I listened to some music and wrote some more.

Then I just let it go… I know that things are going beautifully and how they are supposed to be. The truth is even a Master sometimes has a wobble. I think sometimes we need to have a little wobble in our lives to appreciate how far we have come and how much we have learned.

I Hope you all appreciate all the things you have done and accomplished in your lives and when you feel the wobble you appreciate even more how far you have come! One of my Uncles recently shared a quote with me from one of my favorite movies he remembered I loved as a young man. The movie was “Jeremiah Johnson” a story of a man who left the drama of war and society to become a mountain man. He didn’t have a clue how to survive a winter in the wild and forbidding mountains, yet he was fortunate in meeting a seasoned old timer that shared with him the tools to survive. Some years later they met again Jeremiah was cooking a rabbit over the fire and his friend shared what my Uncle shared with me regarding my life and my spiritual growth. “You have come a long way Pilgrim” I was honored and touched by the sentiment and the recognition.

You have all come a long way to get this far! Remember you are awesome and you are amazing, you are a part of the Human Race, you are changing the world and creating history. I bow humbly and reverently as I acknowledge you wobble and all stand tall and know you have accomplished much on your journey and the journey is young. I hope you accomplish the highest of your goals and live your dreams.

Thank you for allowing me to share a thought or two it is a gift to have the opportunity to do so. I am grateful and appreciate you for sharing your love and your smiles you are making our world a better place for all we share it with.


A classic done re-done in a classic way… one of my faves!

I have had a very busy day and still have much to do, yet as I type away and listen to some music I felt moved to share with you a thought or two on a bright note. The song “Stair way to Heaven” Is one of the all time classics of Rock and Roll history and many may even argue it is the greatest of all time. I love and am moved by music of any genre and it is true from the heart expression for the most part. I sat in a writing group today and rap came up in a conversation as one of the writers shared a song from a musical he is working on. He had expressed his love of music except for rap, which he said needed a C in front of it as he only listened to A and B music. I laughed as he is entitled to his opinion and thoughts yet the first thing that came to my mind was FLARF and a fellow blogger Charliezero oh my how well it would have been to hear a conversation between “Harley: and Charley”

I wanted to share this classic with you in a re do yet with a classic twist, it is one of my favorite songs and one of my favorite versions. I was tempted to share the remake of “For Whom the Bell Tolls” yet time does march on. I have a few special posts coming up and hope you can join me in supporting some very special causes and some very special people that are representing them… How about a 68 year old man with one arm swimming 10,000 yards the equivalent of Everest that he climbed… An amazing man swimming for Cancer research. I have a book unveiling to attend next week where I am speaking/reading as the representative of the Veterans Writing Group of Salt Lake City even though I didn’t contribute to this years anthology. (Wasn’t here for the deadline). It was an honor to be chosen and even more so for the support of the group and mentors in sharing the opportunity and giving me the exposure in the public speaking world.

With no further commentary here is the song thank you for sharing your time here and allowing me to share a thought or two. You are awesome and I would like to say thank you for being the positive change our world so needs as you are making our world a better place for all we share it with. Please keep sharing your smiles and sharing your love, you are making a difference one smile, one hug one act of kindness at a time Thank you for those smiles you share with me! 🙂
