A child looks up at the stars and wonders.
A great father puts a child on his shoulders
and helps them to grab a star.-Reed Markham
My hope is to teach my son that, not only can he, but how to reach for the stars.
According to recent research, complaining actually makes you dumb. So if you know a serial complainer - or if you are one - run away fast!

Every other Sunday, it's family dinner at my Parent's house. We rotate bringing different items such as salad, rolls, dessert and other side dishes. Two weeks ago, my Sister-in-Law brought some squash & zucchini from their garden. She steamed them in a pot, added a few other ingredients and it was fabulous. I asked her how I might recreate and she shared with me. Thankfully, I had most of the ingredients from our Borski Farm share.…Continue
After the birth of her only child, because of circumstances that neither she nor her husband fully understood, she made a decision that, at the time, seemed to be the best of all available solutions – to leave the father and find a replacement. (…Continue

I learn a lot about myself through art. In my class yesterday we talked about being authentic. “What does authentic mean to you?” and “How does that relate to your art?” We each wrote our response on paper so as not to influence the answer someone else might give. It was a great exercise!
Now art takes on many forms. You certainly don’t have to have a paint brush in your hand in order to be creative. One of my teachers,…Continue
Here are two of my sketches, I had a 68 Mustang as my first car so I have a steering wheel, and my motorcycle boot.
I am really enjoying this random assortment of subjects. Thanks,
Oh, well my pictures aren't up loading, sorry about that, I've tried for a couple days now and made them smaller etc. They just take too long or just don't upload. I'll have to keep trying.
Due to popular demand, I am re-posting our most delicious salad recipes. I have been guilty of eating a few bowls of each prior to a meal. This left me full and not participating in the main course. Oh well, leftovers are nice.
Enjoy the fresh ingredients and the wonderful taste of each.…Continue

One reason or another, a lot of us lost sight of who we truly are as we “mature” or “become more responsible”. Elida Evans, in a groundbreaking study on cancer personality in 1926, wrote “the development of individuality is a safeguard to life and health“. …Continue
Is much of your day spent solving an endless supply of problems? Are you only fighting the symptoms of a deeper problem or the problem itself?
I like bringing on new people to a project. The fresh perspective can immediately cut through layers of bull carefully built up by an organization.
Recently I was working…Continue

We tend to take for granted the influence that focus has in our lives. Where our attention is placed that’s where we typically end up.

When others come to us with their problems, it is really easy to provide the solution. Learning to resist this temptation and instead help work out a solution and not take ownership is key to good parenting, friendship and leadership.

Hello 48days friends,
It's been a long and challenging journey for me this past year as I've pursued my certification as a Career Development Practitioner and I am truly grateful for all the help and encouragement I have received from so many along the way. Many of the assignments I completed throughout the year required that I send out questions, surveys, requests for volunteer clients, and conduct interviews. Many of you responded to those requests and gave of…Continue

In looking at the goods and services you provide - regardless if you are self-employed or a more "traditional" employee - are you a roadblock or enabler?
What is generating a lot of work for you? Is it legitimate?
