End of Summer

December 03, 2016   •   Posted under: Mind, Spirit, Lifestyle

I seem to be one of those types who is always burning the candle at both ends. I have a job that has its own demands, plus additional jobs to fill in any spaces left in the life.   To make matters worse, I’m easily distracted which makes me painfully inefficient. That’s a conversation for another day – don’t want to get distracted here.   It’s hard for me to…

Working Out My Plan B

August 07, 2016   •   Posted under: Mind, Finances, Lifestyle, Relationships, Community

My wife and I spent three weeks in Panama this summer. Last summer we did the same in Ecuador. And in January, we squeezed in over a week in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Each was a great visit for us, but in different ways. Investigating warmer environments has been on our agenda as we seek to identify prospective second residences before retirement.   I should make clear that retirement for me is really…

I’m No Prince: Reflections on Being Average

April 24, 2016   •   Posted under: Mind, Spirit, Lifestyle

I suppose the first question to be answered is what the “it” is in the title. I can say that the it varies from person to person and is determined by our life circumstances, to some degree.

Ashley Madison and the Sins of Men

August 29, 2015   •   Posted under: Mind, Lifestyle, Relationships, Community

I’m thinking about all the millions of people out there, mostly men, who are stewing in their own soup right now wondering if or when they will be found out. From those in jobs we might say are in sensitive areas, such as the White House, Congress and the Pentagon, to church pastors and mini-celebrities like Josh Duggar, each one probably has a bit more excitement than he signed up for.  …

One Long Road Cut Short

August 22, 2015   •   Posted under: Mind, Finances, Lifestyle, Relationships

Recently I was reminded that my thinking about life may need adjustment, especially when it comes to my assumptions about how many years I have left on this earth. For the most part, I charge into things more or less like I did 20 or 30 years ago. While I’m more selective as to what kinds of things I’ll charge into, the basic M.O. seems the same. So, what’s the problem with that?…
