Or how to avoid living an unfulfilling life; I’ve been away for quite the while–I’ve got no answer as to why, maybe I just wasn’t compelled to write. I’ve continued to run routinely, entered in a few races and I’m still enjoying running’s many benefits. I guess I had the need to keep certain thoughts… Continue reading Wait Management
Today I ran one of my all time favorite races, the DownTown 5K (formerly known as the CVS Downtown 5K). This was the eighth year in a row that my friend Carol and I have run this race. We’ve had many other friends run with us but we’re the only two who’ve run it each… Continue reading Running With Dad…
During my training run today I was pondering a few of the things I’ve learned in life – So far… When am I at my best? I thought about it and I came up with when I check off these three squares everyday. Number one, feed my soul; When I wake up I say thank… Continue reading Three Squares
Ever have one of those days when all aspects of “your” time on the planet align? The past 24 hours have been that way for me… First the past, yesterday would’ve been my father’s 88th birthday — I spent the day remembering and celebrating him, first with a simple Facebook post acknowledging his birthday. Which… Continue reading Past,Present,Future
You can say this past Sunday I went to church with over 5000 people! It wasn’t your typical church in fact there wasn’t even a building – We did have a Friar who lead us in prayer before the “mass” took off. This congregation met on the streets of Providence RI for the CVS 5K;… Continue reading The Congregation of The 5K
Today is the winter solstice. Which means tomorrow we start gaining more light! This is one of the few things I look forward to in the winter. It also occurs to me that we are celebrating the season of light. The Jewish faith celebrates Chanukah by lighting candles. Christians celebrate with lighted trees – So… Continue reading More Light
God, the universe or out higher power is “The Almighty” of practical jokers! Take this morning for instance. I got up at 4:45 am as usual fed the cats but instead of staying up I went back to bed for a “few minutes”. Three hours later, I awoke in a panic! I was supposed to… Continue reading April Fools?
Well the day after Thanksgiving is usually about spending too much money (but look how much I saved) and eating left overs… Since Black Friday means nothing to me I’ll go with the left overs. Today there was left over food and left over work. The food will be eaten and the work was almost… Continue reading Left Overs…
How did a simple celebration of Thanks turn into a holiday of Angst? Because somewhere along the line we lost the meaning. Instead of joining together to celebrate gratitude for what we have. We’ve created ANGST by taking a simple meal and turning it into an event! Spending too much money (we don’t have) for… Continue reading Angst Giving?
These past few days have been fairly good for me, except for some sad news. Two people have passed away too young and a dear member of my karate family received some difficult news… So what can I do? What we all need to and can do: Be there. Let those you love know that… Continue reading Being There…
