I arrived twenty-two minutes early, parked Blue, and sat listening to my daily Spotify-curated eclectic mix – Classic Rock Anthems courtesy of Seger, Springsteen and the Rolling Stones … drizzled with bubble-gummy ABBA, Boney M and yeah, the Brothers Gibb stuttering Ja-Ja-Ja-Jive Talkin’. The Gap Band got the funk all the way down with Party Train ending the set. I needed something to lift the malaise draping over me. Music, for once, didn’t get it done.

If You Haven’t Already … I’m Asking Nicely …
Now is the perfect time to stop using this insufferably hyperbolic Idiom.
To the habitual user (serial abuser), a kind request – consideration – to please refrain from another impulsive chorus …

With a modest caveat.
Yes, there is a fateful conclusion – mortality – we must all answer.
In the interim of Life, we needn’t sell our Soul – or anything else – to darkness for one fatal leap into the mystical Fountain of Youth.
Or, oblige temptation of false Ego as an enabler to vanity. Continue reading “Never Grow Old”

Perspective In Life Takes Time Invested In Truth, Awareness And Positive Reflection.
In our blind, gluttonous rush to succeed and conquer all at any cost – to achieve and be everything we’ve ever dreamt of – we wear ourselves down to the barest thread of humanity.
Until we stress out, become ill, and collapse.
We’re left cannibalizing our Soul for another sliver of Spiritual Sustenance. Continue reading “Peddle Slower”

Humility and Modesty are the true barometers of Spiritual Strength.
“Of the infinite misjudgements, tribulations and poor decisions I’ve curated in my adolescence, ushered through early adulthood and lingered on into middle-age, trumping up my confidence on a fatalistic foundation of bravado and conceit, was the most perilous work of an Ego Gone Bad.”
Now What Am I Supposed To Do For An Encore?
The eternally, hopeful optimist in me figures I’m about halfway there.
The troubled pessimist?
Together Or Apart …
You – Me – All of Us.
How In Tarnation Do You Expect Others Will?
