’bout sums it up thou’

Just stopped on a walk to Piedmont Park with BBG and meet 4, 5, and 7 yr. old siblings on their way to school. We exchanged pleasantries and as I walked away I heard one say to the other, “That’s an old person,” and the other replied, “Mhmm, but he’s nice though.”
‘Bout sums it up thou’


Sunday Thought

“Dear God,
I am so afraid to open my clenched fists!
Who will I be when I have nothing left to hold on to?
Who will I be when I stand before you with empty hands?
Please help me to gradually open my hands
and to discover that I am not what I own,
but what you want to give me.”
– Henri Nouwen




Why do people have to talk in public restrooms? Don’t talk to anyone while they are “taking care of business” in the
restroom. That’s just creepy and gross. Don’t say “how’s it going”, “you getting out of town before the hurricane”, “do they serve a snack on this flight?” SMH! We aren’t in high school
anymore sneaking a cigarette between classes. That room has a specific purpose and good god conversation is not purpose.

Consider and Apply


Father Time

Looking at photos in my parents guest room had me thinking there’s only one escape from Father Time and that’s an early death. I thought this as I watched a PBS special that featured recording acts in their earlier years and what they look like today performing at an “oldies” concert. Time has a remarkable effect on the human body. Looking at a photo I tried to remember being 17 years old and how old my parents seemed to me at the time. I now recognize that how we see ourselves is quite different than how we actually look to the world. I’m convinced that it takes a little while to have the mirror and our personal picture of ourselves synchronize. So let’s enjoy today because the years are going by so fast and we don’t have much control over how we age.




not cool

Too many refills and a leisurely lunch with a friend on Willys patio led to a trip to the john before heading home. Guys your breaking the code when you’re talking on your cell.¬†Phones and phone conversations are not permitted in the restroom. There is nothing, I repeat …. Nothing is so important that you have to discuss it while doing “that”
