Photo Opp

Returning to airport to fly back for finals week.

Photo opportunities are constant.


Because we carry our camera everywhere, every day.

Gratitude feeds on observation.

Home for treatment

airport parking garage elevator reminder
Have used Lyft and Uber for years versus parking at Orlando International Airport (OIA) when traveling. Before Lyft and Uber, always parked car at OIA parking garage when traveling for Disney Institute.

And in our busy-ness we are often slapped in the face with a much needed reminder.

Like an hour ago.

During our 14 year old’s bi-annual Gastroenterology checkup.

The teen is doing well at self managing his daily medicine. Dr. Erhart reminded all three (Cheryl, Chapin, me) of us that unchecked inflammation increases the odds of colon cancer 20-40 times normal.

Begging asking for donations is one worn-out approach traditional. Offering a compelling and unique product the world will gladly pay good money for is another.

Painstaking excellence is an attitude, and a Brand differentiator…

Why do I make sacrifices with my personal time to write 5 daily blogs? Because, as Martin Luther King reminds us…

“All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance, and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence”.
