The anniversary of the most magnificent day in our life


How did we spend yesterday?

How often do we take inventory of the day before?

Yesterday, the 55th anniversary of that first breath… spent the day doing the normal things.

Simple things.

Routine things.

Joy-filled things.

Life-giving things.

Since (becoming a dad in) 2000 (age 41), just cannot fathom the idea of having to wait for a holiday, anniversary, milestone, etc to celebrate a single day.

Among other things, finished watching the two-hour Apple 2014 WWDC video.

The first three minutes are not available yet on You Tube, hence the 2013 version above.

Live like you mean it.


Or we could wait until tomorrow.

Your move.

What if we wished there were more of them in our life?

Crazy, nut-job misfits… wish there were more of them in our life?

The 2014 Winter Olympic video below is worth an encore. Only two minutes.

We get so busy on the treadmill of life. We poison our souls so slowly we never notice.

(it’s almost sickening to watch dreams waste away)

So here’s the question worth asking.

Are we satisfied with our trajectory?

Whatever it is that we dreamt about, does it still give us a tinge of excitement?

Or have we kissed it goodbye forever?

Either way, those really important younger people in our lives are watching us (non-Olympians that we are).

And we are telling them in advance how ‘The Herd’s’ story ends.

It always ends the same way…. “No, I had always wanted to, and really wished I had done _______. But I didn’t.”

But those crazy, lunatic misfits – the freaks who bucked tradition… they’re the ones we wished we had followed.

Take it from one who knows. There’s still hope for us.

A year from now we’ll wish we had started today.

This is stuff that cannot be made up.

It’s simply the cold hard, amazing truth.

Be well and remain amazed.

Pretty sure you know how to access the video…

Million reasons why we never saw it before – a list a mile long no doubt


Lloimonincia Hall, an LSO sophomore, just changed the way gymnastics is presented.

She took a risk.

With a heart full of passion.

Million reasons why we never saw it before – a list a mile long, no doubt.

Including you might get banned, or kicked off the team.

What does this mean to any of us?

Everyone told the beginning blogger to focus on one blog.

No one is going to get five interconnected blogs.

Art only becomes art when it is done freely, with unstoppable passion.

You, reading this, are an artist.

But you may not believe it.

(Find a million reasons to believe it. The best time to start was yesterday. The next best time is today.)
