100-Word Stroll, 11/21/16: INSIDE THE WRAPPER

My racing thoughts came to a tire-smoking NASCAR stop.  I backed up and read it again.  It read the same way. The cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. I thunk thoughts. Bad coffee doesn’t become good by using nicer cups.  Washed, polished crystal can’t transform mediocre coffee. Anyone with some pride tries to … Continue reading »

#27: THE LIGHT’S ALWAYS GREEN.

If there is such a thing as driver’s Heaven, a solid green light would be part of it, right? Anywhere you chose to go, the light’s always and forever green?  That would pretty much make up for the vehicle issued to you upon entry being a pleasantly aged and mildly flatulent Vauxhall Velox Cresta. Look down, … Continue reading »

#25: DREAMS UNLIMITED, STEPS REASONABLE

“DREAM BIG, MAN!”                     Absolutely!  Ever listen in when someone asks a 9-year-old what they want to be?  There’s NOTHING he can’t do, NOTHING out of bounds for her, zero they can’t accomplish.  Great scientist?  Army General?  World-class chef?  Navy Seal?  Neurosurgeon?  Astronaut?  Astrophysicist?  Part of first Mars colony?  SURE!  No lid, no … Continue reading »

APPLAUD THE OTHER GUY

Jim Stovall wrote it:  “You need to be aware of what others are doing, applaud their efforts, acknowledge their successes, and encourage them in their pursuits.  When we help one another, everybody wins.” This caught my spirit’s shirttail because I’ve wondered for years at the dearth of such open, honest appreciation for what you yourself … Continue reading »

2016 GOOD FRIDAY MUSINGS: GOD’S SURE GRACED ME!

We all secretly agree:  “I’d never be as shallow and vapid as those other Twelve.” Of course we never say it.  “Who, me?  Oh, my, no!  No way–I’m no different than the disciples.”  Wide-eyed.  Hand in the air.  Leaking humility from every other pore. Let’s be real.  How do you suppose the Twelve Lads got started down … Continue reading »
