Paradox and Passion with Pear Blossoms

It’s been building for a while now. Probably longer than I want to admit. This feeling of being on the brink, right on the edge of something that’s just out of reach. I try to think beyond the moment. What is the piece I’m missing? I can’t reason my way out. My inner child throws…

Tony Robbins Checklist For Relationships

Tony just completed his Become Unshakeable Challenge which is, essentially, his freebie online primer that sells people on UPW Virtual. I’ve done these multiple times and UPW three times because I believe, as Tony Robbins says “Repetition is the mother of skill.” The bottom line is taking 100 percent responsibility. That means if things aren’t…

Luke Shepardson Wins 2023 Eddie Aikau

This is such a great story. Local lifeguard, super sweet non-professional surfer beats out world champs. January 22,2023 was the 10th annual Eddie Aikau Invitational at Waimea Bay on the island of Oahu. There are many great YouTube clips of the big wave surf competition ranging from a couple of minutes to 8 hours. I’m…

Tony’s At It Again: Become Unshakeable

The essence of this day’s training is about the Power of Identity. For more information visit https://www.tonyrobbins.com “Anything you say ‘I Am’ to, emotionally enough and consistently enough, you will become.” This occurs on the upside and the downside. Tony likes to use the analogy of the thermostat. If you’re used to 68 degrees your…

Another Hawk Sighting

Yesterday I was again in Belterra (a development in Drippings Springs) and driving with my friend out of the neighborhood towards and art supply store. We were both simultaneously captivated by the majesty of this soaring raptor right over the roadway in front of us. At first the bird looked like a vulture because it…

Building a Home Library

I believe a home library is a very personal collection of ideas. A repository of information on an individual’s most passionate interests. No two libraries, therefore, are the same. Over the years I’ve curated at least three personal libraries, all of which were disassembled or given away owing to cross-country moves or other major life…

Fascinating Interview with Neil Gaiman

Mr. Gaiman is a favorite author and screenwriter of fictional fantasy for children that manages to walk that magic line between kids and adults. He has written a long list of best sellers that have been adapted for stage and screen, including Coraline and, most recently, The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Gaiman…

You Can’t Love Too Much

This statement might not be true when it comes to early romantic love, because in the courtship stage if one person rushes in too quickly with passion it has the tendency to repel the beloved. That’s a whole different subject (even though I want to believe expressing genuine affection is never bad) than what is…

Last Day of 2022

That’s me on the left, my sister Anita, my youngest nephew Alex and youngest brother Michael. There were about 15 others in attendance but that’s the only picture with me and my siblings so I’m going with it. My oldest brother Ted celebrated with friends in and around Dana Point and Newport Beach, California. Happy…
