Breakfast in Philadelphia

Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia
Breakfast at the same table yesterday.

 

West Chester University
West Chester University parking was at a premium. We couldn’t find any. And then i spotted an anomaly…

 

West Chester University
It’s free, on Homecoming weekend, across the street from the Main Campus.

Our goal yesterday was simple. Check out after breakfast and drive to York for my 40th High School reunion – and stop at West Chester University on the way.

Cheryl and i met in an interview there in 1979.

Once a 13 track, 9-story Train Station, it’s now the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

Back in the day, the rules had yet to be written.

 

One of the key success tactics most people don’t embrace is overcoming the fear of embarrassment.

Embarrassment used to hold me back.

Now, i don’t fear embarrassment.

Oh my gosh, the world has opened up in ways i could have never been bold enough to dream.

Panic serves no one

Day to day, humanity leans heavily on stress and distress.

We rarely lean on joy, confidence, and growth.

What if this was reversed?

Good news, you can.

Broken attitude is tempting but not an option

Apple Care call time
Yes, 3-plus hours on a call for help.

 

Broken attitude is tempting, but not an option. At the end of the call, resolution was not complete. i kept reminding myself during the three-plus hours,  “This is a first world problem challenge”.

That was enough to keep a positive attitude throughout.

Had it not been for the concise, compelling reminder, i would have went off the deep end with impatience.

The older you become the more challenging it is to do new things. The antidote, it seems to me, is to substitute quality for quantity.

Note to self for posterity: 08.03 Wednesday…8am drive to Canada/Waterton Park. Chief Mountain. Prince of Wales Hotel. Lunch in Waterton. Saw a bear at Prince of Wales driveway. Dinner at Two Dog Flats. Drove to Two Dog Flats to look for bear. Saw one at 8pm. Good pics.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
