Today

Today I drove to Costa Mesa to pick up a text book for my partner.  I had to go to Orange Coast College to get the book that she purchased on-line and needs for her class on Sunday.  She is out of town so she could not do it. Since I had to go there…

So much so

I am blessed!  I think of all of the things that I have in my life; all of the things that I am able to do.  Knowing that there are many opportunities out there for me, if I should so decide. This past Sunday I spent four hours sailing out around the Long Beach /…

Long Climb Up

I am grateful the grind. And, at the moment, I am certainly blessed with an abundance of challenges grinding me down. I have come naked from my mother’s womb; I shall equally depart so. In the meantime, I shall be grateful for what I have that eases – and for that which curses – for…

Rain Shine

I am going to use this platform for my soap box tonight… I’ve been hearing for years people gripping about the lack of rain; how are state is in trouble and we need rain badly. Well, we got a lot of it—and now I’m listening to a bunch of people complain about the lack of…

The right path

I am currently reading The 6 Phase Meditation Method by Vishen Lakhiani.  He has a section on gratitude and I am happy to say that according to Vishen, I am on the correct path as far as gratitude goes.  My brother and I started this blog so that we could express our gratitude to the world.  I…

Flying High

Yesterday evening I took a quick helicopter flight around the area of Sedona Arizona.  It was my first time ever flying in a helicopter; and even though I was cramped in the back seat, four of us were sitting across, and I had to sit through a time-share presentation to get the flight at an…

Under The Tree

I am grateful to be a member of a family that is comfortable asking for prayers of support… And I am grateful for the opportunity to go to a concert with Bodhi. And I am grateful for…

Travels

Today I am in Sedona Arizona.  I spent the day hiking around several different trails.  I understand why people are attracted to Sedona; forget the vortexes that are supposed to be here, this place is beautiful.  The beauty that surrounds this city is just incredible.  I am so grateful for my partner who brought me…

Promising Starts

I am grateful for the offer received early this morning to consult with a podcast coach… and for the promising business meeting Marc and I had. Seems we are moving more into a professional stance with Moped Outlaws. I certainly am grateful for what we’ve done, and what we will be doing. It is a…

Life is short

Last night I was watching a show on PBS about an alien object that had entered our solar system.  Scientist predicted that it had come from another solar system that was eight billion years older than ours.  That is hard to imagine.  As I pursue my new career and life on the oceans I still…

A New Year; A New Beginning

I have survived another year.  I am another year older and another year wiser.  Looking back on the year 2022, there are a lot of good people that I have met and a lot of lessons that I have learned. The year 2023 I am anxious to share my experiences with others, to help educate…

Never old; never bored

I am grateful for quite a bit… this first post of mine in the year 2023. I had a fabulous recording of what shall be the opening episode for season ten of LWG. And season three opener of Moped Outlaws went live today—another podcast I am grateful to be a part of. I had a…
