100-Word Stroll for 5/2/17: 2 WAYS TO DEFEAT The SPIN CYCLE

You’re in the basement replacing a lightbulb.  You look out the window and notice the sprinkler’s still on.  While out turning the sprinkler off you see you left the mower out . . .  “In the spin—”  Pour yourself a refill and walk with me . . . “There’s a lot of stuff going on.”  Do tell.  … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll, 10/27/16: IF IT WAS EASY, ANYBODY COULD DO IT

Abraham Lincoln once said, “Whatever you are, be a good one.” I hate physical limitations.  I like less being told I can’t do something.  Young twerps getting air time just by sitting on their afts whining really grind my gears.  Older ones, even more. You’ve heard it:  “NOBODY SAID IT WOULD BE EASY.  THEY SAID IT … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll, 9/29/16: TIMED FLIES

I sat watching flies.  It later seemed obvious they were also observing me.  Or, more to the point, my food and drink.  Flies aren’t choosy. If one has a thirsty and inquisitive mind there’s no limit to what one can learn.  Nor from whence. What held my attention was their singularity of purpose.  The flowchart … Continue reading »

100-Word Stroll for 8/29/16: THREE WAYS TO GUARANTEE YOU’RE A SUCCESS

Only passions, great passions can elevate the soul to great things. ~ Denis Diderot Success is a little like wrestling a gorilla. You don’t quit when you’re tired.

#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 »

QTMs for 6/5/16: FINISHING BEATS STARTING

I appreciate thoughts that slow me down. This is Sunday morning.  Atypical for the rest of the week, but totally the same for my Sundays.  With the exception that I’m not yet dressed for worship.  When one sings on the praise team and customarily wears black and whatever, the black tends to welcome this or … Continue reading »

QTMs for 5/3/16: HALFHEARTED NEVER ENTHUSED ANYBODY

The lyric is, “With my whole heart I will praise Him . . .” Yeah.  Psalms.  Even people who rarely read the Bible could probably pick out where that came from.  The song’s based on Psalm 117, which is a short little thing that basically says, “Praise the Lord.” Okay.  How many Psalms are there?  … Continue reading »

QTMs for 10/20/15: YOUR BEST, WHERE YOU ARE, WHAT YOU HAVE

Do that.  Do your best right where you are with what you have. There’s always a critic or two around to gig you on how you could’ve done this or that better.  Don’t let it even slow you down – much.  Critics are always easy to identify; they’re the ones leaning against the door, doing … Continue reading »
