i listened for something elusive

quote about struggle
From someone’s Facebook update a few months ago.


i listened for silence.

But heard none.

After several decades, i listened again.

And heard it.

That began an ongoing midlife celebration.




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.

This website is about our mental attitude. To easily and safely leave this site to read today’s post on jeff’s physical health website, click here.


Midlife change begins alone and in silence, but…

Fall colors at Epcot

Midlife change begins alone and in silence, but…

But let’s think about our life for a moment. The day to day routine. The relative frequency of unexpected items requiring our precious time and energy.

When do we have time to sit in silence?


The answer it would seem, will only come when we pause, quietly.

Like a broken record… we promise ourselves (again)… ‘starting tomorrow’.

Today is yesterday’s tomorrow.
