Pausing for a midlife moment of silence

Pausing for a midlife moment of silence. I’m writing this post 102 days before September 11. You’re reading it now on 9/11.

There’s something extraordinarily calming, stimulating, liberating, and educational about not going with traditional herd-mentality mass market hype saturation which surrounds big-time anniversary dates.

Not a fan of that. Too limiting.

Why do we only celebrate our birthday once a year? Everyday sounds much more alive.

Pausing this morning, Friday May 31, and wondering where America is with their memory of where they were when the world stopped turning.

And wondering were are all the American flags that used to be on our vehicles, in our lawns, and on our lapels.

How Cool Was That?


Good Monday morning everyone. Not sure where to begin. So many thoughts racing through the cranium. Did you notice it, over the weekend? The change.

How did you remember 9.11?

It will seem trivia to some, and to others, it was major, and, drastic.

And it happened on a day in history that was major and tragic.

September 11.


After nearly 18 months writing 5-blogs-a day, everyday, I stopped, on 911, to pause and reflect.

More on this story tomorrow. Meanwhile, I’m heading over to to write today’s 2nd post.
