No theory at Mid Life Celebration

Why can so few of us slow down enough to appreciate unusually rare art?

Called three people yesterday on the flight home from Detroit. The calls were the first of this type in 55 years.

The people were chosen for their dedication, support, encouragement, loyalty, hope.

People side by side with MLC from the beginning in April 2009.

Mid Life Celebration’s very first post was November 14, 2008.

Sure it’s challenging to read five daily, differently-themed blog posts for five-plus years.

Maybe they were contacted because they understand it’s exponentially more challenging to write them.

No theory here.

Only real life in real time.

  1. Jeff,

    It has been an amazing journey to watch, and you thought THAT was interesting? Now it’s getting really interesting! I am looking forward to the next leg in the journey…one part of your life is passing the baton onto the next part (I thought I would go with a good track and field metaphor in honor of Prefontaine’s influence on you).

    Have a great day!


  2. Bob, it was really nice to talk with you that day. How surprised were you? 🙂

    PS. Freaky on the timing. Just last night stumbled upon a You Tube clip from a personal favorite scene in “Without Limit” (the Steve Prefontaine story). It will show up on Lane 8 in 100 days. 🙂

    PS. Here’s the clip:

  3. Jeff,

    I was very surprised. I remember it so specifically…I was at Graham’s baseball game when you called!

    P.S. Talk about timing…God doesn’t do coincidences…it was for a reason. 🙂 I will have to check it out.


  4. Thanks for the link to the first post. Had not seen that, but it was great from the very start.

  5. Donna, re-reading it this morning, was smiling because the DNA has been there from the start. The motives, the hopes, the vision – good and noble. Glad you got to see it.
