Semper Gumby

Disney Keynote Speaker
Be intentional where you used to be less intentional.

 

Though no one can go back and make a brand-new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand-new ending.  – Carl Bard

 

Semper Gumby – always flexible.

There’s a balancing act between standing firm and being flexible.

There’s a time and a place for everything.

However, there is no definitive guide to accurately say when to bend and when to not.

This is ours to figure out.

Have fun.

Overwhelmed in good and not so good ways

 

Overwhelmed in good and not so good ways.

Such is life.

Let’s make an assumption that we are not taking drugs (prescription or otherwise, and please remember alcohol is a drug, as is food, etc)

Does life have to constantly feel overwhelming?

No.

Do you know what the goal is?

It’s to minimize overwhelm, not eliminate it.

Is it impossible to eliminate overwhelm?

At 58, i haven’t lived long enough to discover what’s possible.

Do you think i’m trying to do the impossible?

Happy 45th Birthday Walt Disney World

Sanibel Island Pinocchio's Ice Cream
It took 32 visits before we discovered Pinocchio’s ice cream. Life IS cool.

 

Sanibel Island Pinocchio's Ice Cream
A Disney-style trash can?

 

Sanibel Island Pinocchio's Ice Cream
Sanibel Island Pinocchio’s Ice Cream parlor literally had a line out the door.

 

People always ask, “Where do you go for vacation?”

Answer, “Sanibel Island, Glacier National Park, and home to Pennsylvania are the annual destinations.”

Write like you mean it

Sanibel Island Pizza
Tradition on every Writer’s Retreat to Sanibel is to stop at Island Pizza on the way to the beach cottage.

 

Cheryl has been working for me off and on since i first began in 2008, even before i incorporated as an LLC.

This past week she spent hours editing (rewriting and making artistic enhancements) much of the new website copy.

Why?

Because she thought the current copy and layout could be improved.

The juxtoposition is stunning

Mitchell's Sandcastles Breakers Cabin
Before sunrise yesterday getting ready for 8am departure for WDW.

 

From a cottage on Florida’s Sanibel Island to a cabin in Montana’s Glacier National Park, within 48 hours.

The juxtaposition is stunning.

From one beautiful place to another.

Same thing happens in life except it’s roughly 48 years between the juxtaposition of youth and middle age.

Stunningly beautiful?
