    Happy (New) Year

    by  •  • LifeStuff • 0 Comments

    It’s an interesting thing, that we greet each New Year with hopes and aspirations. We like new beginnings, and since time is measured by our calendar, we naturally realize the best time to make a change is when the year seems new. The funny thing is, we follow a calendar that is artificial. The...

    Resistance

    It is timely for me that I picked up Steven Pressfield’s book “Turning Pro” recently, and cracked it open this weekend. A quick read, the book totally spoke to me about where I have been of late. In it, Pressfield readdresses some concepts he introduced in “The War of Art,” about work and getting...

    Happy Trails, Bro

    My brother and his family have been packing up all this week for a moment that occurs early tomorrow morning- when they will collectively pile into two vehicles, and start a long drive that will take them out of New Mexico. Moving away. Possibly for good. I shouldn’t look at this transition in our...

    The Importance of Resolutions

    by  •  • LifeHelps • 0 Comments

    Every year we make ’em. Every year we break ’em. Why do we keep doing this? New Years’ resolutions. Yes, from one angle, they can be a list of goals we expect to not reach. That weight we can’t lose. That instrument we can’t seem to learn. That trip we can never seem to...

    SOTD: “It’s Real” by K-Ci and JoJo

    by  •  • SOTD • 0 Comments

    Not hip to the hot R&B of the 90’s, I came across this tune on my Backstreet Boys station on Pandora (no snickering!), and all I can say is I love the sterling sound of these brothers’ blended vocals. I wish I could sing, and if I could I wish I could sing in...

    This morning when my alarm went off at 5:30, I pretty much cursed it and then texted my friend Kurt, trying to talk him out of our scheduled Loop run. I had been having a good dream and my bed was warm and I just wanted to sleep, so everything in me did not...

    The weekend was good. I’m becoming a little more active than I have been of late. My buddy Kurt and I got three Loop jogs in last week. My body needs the exercise to, of all things, stave off aches and pains, among other reasons. I could lose a few pounds as well. We’ll...

    SOTD: “Love Don’t Run” by Steve Holy

    "Love Don't Run" by Steve Holy

    I love the lyrics to the chorus of this song. Contrary to the covert relationship portrayed in the video, authentic love encourages us to be visibly strong and dedicated to those we love, and draws us to also encourage and nurture strength in others. It drives us to be strength in the storm, to...

    "The Name of the Game" by Dan Hartman

    Take 80’s “I Can Dream About You” guy, throw in the goofy frenetic action of the movie “Fletch”, and weave in some pseudo club beats, and you get this peppy pill. This is dedicated to my bro ChrisP, because “It’s the name of the game- it’s not about money…” That about says it all....
