Minor Inconvenience

Yes, everyone is getting a bit testy over the “Virus Shut-in”. But, what a great time to look for a reason to share a smile. I was cheating yesterday and went to local Walmart. Outside was a gentleman who reached out to me with one of those sticks used to pick up trash. In the …

Dubious Honor of being Number #1

This post has a serious side ! Over last several months I became aware of several friends who had medical issues and also had withdrawal issues from alcohol. Two actually went to a facility for help with the issue. I took this as a wake up call. It made me think about how big of …

Seven Second Delay

I willing to bet that literally everyone has either done something and or said something they regret and would do anything to take back.  As many of you know I’m convinced there is something or somebody that had a hand organizing things.  I have no idea what it or whom it may be and open …

SWEAT – IS IT REALLY GOOD FOR YOU ?

I have been reading that Yoga is an endeavor that allows one to get in touch with their inner self, discover the meaning of life, contemplate the greater good, become more aware of their body, become: cheerful, thrifty, brave, kind, clean, reverent, and much more. After more research I discovered if yoga is good Bikram …

Don’t Die With the Music Still In You

I love this saying/idea.  I first heard it via a Wayne Dyer lecture.  Of course, the word Music is not to be taken literally but rather to mean that we all must not waste the opportunity to pursue our desires, curiosities, and abilities.  It never ceases to amaze me how many people are doing things …

Peaked TOO Early !

Yes ! That is my golf trophy and Yes ! you are reading it correctly – 1956. As Marlon Brando said in “On the Water Front” I could have been a contender. The reason I was Pee Wee runner up rather than first place is still being hotly debated. Mike McMurray won first place. I ran into him two years ago at the fiftieth High School reunion. He was unable to look me in the eye. Due to this slight I backed away from what would most likely would been a truly spetacular career.

This bring me to the present. Yes, I have now been able to put the past behind me and believe there is still time resurrect the natural skill set I possess. I went to Florida last week for 2 days of lessons and while the pro was unable to work with a “natural” (likely intimidated) it was enough to awaken what has been dormant for over 60 years. After returned to Indiana I again pursued lessons with an appropriate mentor. I have found such a person and will be taking lesson weekly while practicing everyday. It is suggested that purchase some new equipment. Price is no object as the least I can do is to unselfishly serve as an inspiration to others who have not been able to the “best they can be”. I will be providing on going updated as walk the path to excellence !

Beginning of New Adventure

Yesterday was the beginning of my seventieth year.  It is important look back, but in my case it is only to evaluate mistakes so the coming years will be even more meaningful and exciting.    I have made more than my share of mistakes.  However, I have no (well maybe few) regrets as I have …

GRASPING

Many people say one is born with a clean “slate”.  I’m not convinced.  Some believe in reincarnation saying one brings prior experiences from past lives and others subscribe to the idea many traits are innate.  Personally, I do not know but when born many things seem to be inherited such as physical size, intellect, health, …

BUDDHIST BOOT CAMP

Buddhist Boot Camp is a book written by Timber Hawkeye which I recently became aware of and purchased. I first became interested in Buddhism over 20 years ago. Many people believe it is a religion and actually it is not but rather a way to enjoy a fulfilling life. I have read a multitude of …

7 UP Roundtables

Like everybody else I’ve had several traumatic moments in my life which stands out as life altering.  Right up there in the top five was when the formula for 7-Up was changed.  As I (we) get older often fond memories of youth get revisited.  Although I spend at least fifteen to twenty minutes every day …
