Spirit has the power to enlighten us. Why not be enlightened?
Spirit has the power to heal us.Why not be healed?
Spirit has the power to empower us. Why not be empowered?
Spirit has the power to grow us. Why not be bigger?
Spirit has the power to move us. Lets all get moving!

Friday Flash 55-Resolution

He began to realize as he drew nearer the half century mark, that he was developing a certain similarity to the Pillsbury Dough Boy. He resolved to attack the problem and no time better than the New Year! Off to Gold's Gym for a one dollar sign up deal. Resolve is very highly over-rated!

Hi guys, sorry to have been absent for so long but life intrudes! The better half joined the gym to use the pool and talked me into it. Some years ago, I coached high school football, some baseball and was fairly active. Lately....not so much. There is a definte softening of the middle and things have gotten a lot heavier lately. I'm blaming gravity......So its off to the gym 3 times a week. Damn.....

Friday Flash 55-Enlightenment

Trembling with anticipation, he held The Book of All Knowledge in his hands! He worked up some courage and opened the leather bound volumn to the first page. Unbelievably, the first page, like all the rest, was blank! He pondered this, perplexed. How could this be? Then with a smile he picked up his pen...

Friday Flash 55-Endings

He had struggled long and hard with it, but in the end, he knew that he had to. Surronded with negativity and performing tasks he wasn't proud of had taken their toll. He gave his notice and enrolled in the classes he had yearned to take. Growth is tough but at least he would sleep!

Friday Flash 55-The Path

He continued to wander the forest in search of The Path. He knew it was here because he could feel it. He climbed a high hill and looked off in the distance. Seeeing nothing, he looked back and saw a long and winding path to his feet. He realized then that the world was his......

Friday Flash 55-Angels

He was going through hell. Unbelievable traffic accident, son, daughter and wife all in different hospitals. All in serious condition. Questions without any real answers and facing a future uncertain. He needed rest to clear his mind, but where to find it? Then at last finding comfort and caring. Sometimes angels can wear clown suits.....

In 1995 my wife was broadsided at an intersection by a fully loaded tractor-trailer with my son and daughter. She was life-flighted to UPMC in Pittsburgh, my son was under observation in the local hospital and my daughter was in Todd Children's Hospital in Youngstown, OH. I was traveling about 120 miles daily trying to keep up with everyone. Todd's had a Ronald McDonald house attached and I spent one night there, my parents were there for several nights. These were some of THE kindest folks I ever met, in fact one lady made my Dad a chocolate cake! Today on my way to work I stopped at the McDonald's drive thru for breakfast and they were asking for a one dollar donation for RMH. I gave a bit more. If you're out, why not grab a Big Mac and leave an extra buck or two for these folks, they're well worth it.

Friday Flash 55-Meditation

Having released his frustrations into the healing waters of the lake, he climbed a hill that sat high above the water. He sat cross-legged under a majestic old oak and watched a hawk glide majestically overhead. He closed his eyes, listened to the call of the hawk and accepted the energy of Spirit deeply.

Guess I'm getting a little more introspective of late. I recently started meditation and have hung around some new-agey types. Why these ancient beliefs are called new, I'll never know. I guess you're never to old to look in new directions....or old ones!
