Today I travel…

Centering Thought: As the Buddha taught the middle way, I know all things are possible with balance and mindfulness. Today I travel the middle way. The middle way is a founding principle in Buddhism and was revealed to the Buddha after pushes his practice to a dangerous and unhealthy limit on his way to enlightenment.... Continue Reading →


Today I give…

Centering Thought: It takes nothing away from you to give out compliments to friends and people who aren't your friends yet, but it can bring joy to you and the recipient. Today I give compliments freely.   Some people feel in showing kindness, you are also opening yourself up to being used and taken advantage... Continue Reading →

Today I will continue to keep diversity and openness front of mind.     I love Pride month, not only because I too am a gay male, but the energy of this month is just dynamic and incredibly. Pride is about showing who you... Continue Reading →

Centering Thought: Today I am in the business of Living.   I've written before about surviving and living.

I personally am overwhelmed. Those three things are just a portion of my 2017 goals... Continue Reading →

To be a child again

I've always wondered what it would be like to go back to about fifth or sixth grade, with all the knowledge of how the world works I've obtained currently. Would I follow the same path that created what I'm very happy with now? Would I keep the good and just improve on the difficult times... Continue Reading →

Everybody’s Right

I honestly feel like these thoughts came out of nowhere. It was 7:30 in the morning and the last thing I saw on television was The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, which poked fun at Joe Biden and the recent revelation that news anchors lie and pad their war coverage resume (everyone pads their resume...

I was not your friend Yesterday.

This post is one of the few where I am pretty much venting to work through my personal dramas. I never go into situations wanting to be unkind but it's going to be hard with this subject. It really boils down to my frustration with those that only remember your name when they need something.... Continue Reading →
