Merry Christmas, thank you Christmas for being an annual part of my life

Fosbury flop. Screenshot from Twitter yesterday (Oct 24). The University of Oregon revealed this statue yesterday.

 

 

Why the Fosbury video?

Because Twitter planted a seed yesterday.

And the seed grew into a thought about being a pioneer.

Pioneers change things.

Maybe the way i think about death (and the 10-year plan) is pioneering.

Time will tell.

And no, i didn’t do it to pioneer anything.

Dick Fosbury didn’t either.

Dick was simply looking for a way to not be the worst high jumper on his High School team.

And i simply don’t want to die with regret. i plan to die with peace and contentment. Peace with who i am. Content with what i have.

Merry Christmas, thank you Christmas for being an annual part of my life.

According to my 10-year plan, this is my final Christmas.

i’m at peace with having such a non-conforming approach to life.

The critics, and there are always critics, used to be people i worried about what they would think of me.

Maybe 3-5 years ago i started asking, “Why?”

Well, for starters, some of them are family and friends.

People i’ve known a lifetime.

To this unnecessary worry, i’ve surrendered.

Free at last.

Thank God almighty, i’m free at last. (ht MLK)

Note: ht = hat tip.

‘Twas the night before Christmas (2018)

discomfort
No one has to believe this. And for some, it’s all they believe. Not only is it the price, it’s the path. It’s so beautiful.

 

‘Twas the night before Christmas (2018).

Will this be my final Christmas Eve?

Note: i write this post 60 days before this goes live. Not only could this be my final Christmas Eve, it could also be my final October 24th.

.think .differently means something only if i do it.

Fly from Sanford, Florida to Allentown

Disney Construction company
Three miles into yesterday’s bike ride through Walt Disney World.

 

Texted this photo to a CEO yesterday while on a 15-mile bike ride through Walt Disney World, reminding her she is her organization’s chief cultural architect.

Merry Christmas.

We arrived in Allentown, Pennsylvania an hour ago (9am) and i’m writing from my mother-in-law’s apartment. Disney Christmas parade on TV in the background.

How do you start your Christmas morning?

airport baggage claim
Yesterday, December 24 at Harrisburg, PA airport.

 

How do you start your Christmas morning?

Mine started an hour ago at 5am in the house i grew up in.

We arrived from Orlando yesterday.

From 80 degrees to 40.

Weirdly, i miss the 17-year tradition of starting the day delivering food for needy Central Florida families.

Visiting aging relatives, on both sides of our Family, inspires me to think about my life should i live another 20-30 years.

And i can’t help but wonder if our Son will see us as an example or a warning.

Life is hard for everyone.
