Destiny

Our destiny awaits, and the good news is we get to decide what it will be. 

I tried to be Gene Krupa, but he was already taken, so I had to learn to be my own kind of drummer. 

For a while I emulated my old college professor’s style of choral conducting, but he was already taken too, so I used what I learned from him and developed my own style.

The great news of all of this is – you decide who and what you want to be.

Define Yourself

And just who are you?
What is your intent?
What do you do?

Your identity begins when you define yourself.  It begins when you declare your intent. 

“I’m a writer” you say.
  “I speak.”
    “I sing.”
      “I build things.”
        “I think.”
          “I cook.”
            “I sew.”

People who define themselves know.  They know where they want to go.
They know their best step forward, and are learning how to plant their foot one step at a time.

Maybe you don’t yet know exactly what it is you want to do or should do, but are you curious enough to find out?

Maybe someone else has already claimed your dream.  Well, that’s okay, because it has never been done by you, and you can make the best of your dream better than anyone you know.

So go define the best you that has ever been.

The end!

Start to be Great

I love this idea –


The secret is in the starting.  I don’t know what “great” looks like to you but I do know what it looks like to me and I am in pursuit of it. 

I have made the start, and every day I work on it a bit more. 

You too?


I hope so. 

I really hope so.

Never Say This

Some things just don’t need to be said – ever.  Check these out.



~“Want to go for a run” said to someone 40-pounds overweight

~“Why don’t you try this kale?  It’s good for you.”

~“Honey, it’s time to get up.” Its half past 4 (am)

~“Why don’t you stand up” (said to a short person who is standing up.)

~“Did your grandkids paint that picture” when looking at a Jackson Pollard masterpiece.

~“Don’t give up your day job” said to me by others who read my less-than serious poems for the first time.

~“Seriously – you’re not going to date him/her are you?”

~“Why don’t you drink some carrot juice instead of that milkshake?”

~“Are you really going to eat that whole hamburger by yourself?

~“Let’s go for a drive in the countryside” said to a husband on Superbowl Sunday.”

~“Please don’t compete in that pageant. People will laugh at you.”

~“You’re an accident looking for a place to happen.”

~“Don’t cry” says the boyfriend as he is breaking it off with his girlfriend.

~“Want some carrot juice to help wash down that piece of chocolate cake?”

~“Take this medicine.  It’s good for you, and it doesn’t taste all that bad.”

~“Is that really your real hair?”
