This Is Just For Me

So much travel

Ten days ago in Montana.

So much travel.

It was bound to happen.


Next life chapter.

A few October days of life on a college campus reminds me how seasons change without fail.

This new season of life has travel written all over it.

Old cigarette ad
A time capsule from 1972 (freshman year for Dieruff’s class of 1976). The article is ridiculous old yet how did advertising people think it had integrity?

Writer’s flood.

Too many thoughts.

Too many lessons.

Too many memories.

From just a single day.


But i will try to say a lot in today’s five posts, without writing a lot.

Wish me luck.

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.


Dear Readers

Baby Boomer truth or dare…

Remembering Walt, my favorite Walt Disney book
Boomers watched Walt Disney original broadcasts, not reruns


If we are not willing to learn, no one can help us.

If we are determined to learn, no one can stop us.

Live without excuses.

We are smart enough now, as Boomers, to completely get this.

Walt Disney has inspired countless Boomers (including me) to keep learning.

But this can’t be something reserved for Fantasyland.

Mid Life Crisis Is When...

Reading is fundamental, and often flawed

A box of Kellogg's Krave cereal serves as a metaphor
Do we crave improvement or stability?


Can’t start the next chapter of our life if we keep re-reading the last one.

Do we crave stability or continuous improvement?

Do we survive or thrive?

reThink – rePrioritize – reCommit

It’s up to us to stay or go.

Zen & The Art Of Teaching

Uncommonly Insightful
Uncommonly Insightful

William Glasser suggests this is the way we learn, and more importantly, retain information, yet his ideas, which focus on personal choice, personal responsibility and personal transformation, are considered controversial by mainstream psychiatrists.

What all of us can consider not controversial, is the simple fact that we are born, we live and learn, and then we die.

What and how we do it, and the impact we make, is up to us. Period.
