Go confidently in the direction of your dreams!

Live the life you’ve imagined.

As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler

~Henry David Thoreau

A week before the marathon, the doctor said don’t run.

I ran anyway.  A full and a half.

I lost my sweet dog.  And I have another sweet dog at my feet.

I lost a friend and gained another.

Three days ago, I had an MRI and the doctor put me in a cast.

Only one day before my job ended.

My job ended two days ago, and within 20 minutes I had an email from an old employer.

That said, come back.  We really really want you to come in.  Tomorrow.

Yesterday, I go in.  Cast, unemployed, fear.

They hire me on the spot for a substitute gig that pays into my retirement.

One son becomes a Freshman last night, one a Middle Schooler.

I have saved a little for the first time in my life so I can have a summer and pay the bills.

I play the hand I’m dealt every single day.

This journey is long, and I have simplified my life.

I love Thoreau.
