I Have Some Questions for You...

Posted on February 22, 2010 at 12:26pm 0 Comments

We have one life, you and I. One crazy, short parcel of time to live a life we are fortunate enough to have. If I was one of those inspirational speaker guys I would say something like, “You need to live your life…or life will live you.” You know that kind of thing, right? Yeah…I’m not going to say that because it’s not my style and I’m clearly not very good at it.

Instead I’ll ask you this:…

Valentine's Day

It was Laura’s favorite holiday. She loved Valentine’s Day and now it’s 2 days away and I’m feeling more anxious about it than I did for our first Christmas without her.

Actually one of my daughter’s said, “I thought Thanksgiving was her favorite holiday.” And of course it was. So was Halloween…and New Year’s Eve…and while she never said Christmas was her favorite she often said she loved Christmas time. Those are 2 different… Continue

Sing It Baby...

I woke up with a huge hole in my heart this morning. I think I had a dream about Laura last night...but I can't tell if it actually happened or if I wanted it to have happened. It doesn't much matter because in the end it made me miss her again and it was all I could do to get out of bed and start the day.

I muddled through our morning routine...feeling that empty space all the while. I hated it. I wasn't the best dad either. I hated that… Continue

Over=Start Palindrome

The video you are about to see is called a “palindrome.” From what I understand it is something that reads the same both forwards and backwards…but with a different meaning in either direction. In other words…it means one thing when you read it down…and another thing when you read it up…but the words don’t change at all.

It’s one of the things I’ve noticed about life since everything changed. The paradox thing…that we can’t know “good” without knowing “bad”…that great sorrow can… Continue

How Are We Doing?

Posted on January 26, 2010 at 1:47pm 5 Comments

This is something I posted on my Thirty Seconds Site that got a fair amount of views and comments. I thought I would post it here too.

I guess this is pretty darn personal…but that’s what a blog is for isn’t it? I made it over the past few days…and while it’s about us…the living…I hope it makes Laura proud somehow.

Just putting this together gave me some insight that I never would have had if I decided it was too personal. No… Continue

I believe you. Douglas was a musician and wrote beautiful music and poetry. He was a kind and gentle spirit that knew no enemy -- he had love and kindness for every living creature. I miss him -- and am grateful to have been blessed to have him in my life for 31 fantastic years.

Hmm...well...I lost my wife in August of 2009 after 3+ years of a cancer deal. I'm determined to live my life in a forward looking way and hope to inspire others to make the most out of their lives. (Not just those who have lost someone they love.)
