Unexpected

The unexpected is everywhere. It may be good, or bad, or neither. It may change your life or choices, or both. You might not even notice it when it arrives. Sometimes it’s a thing or event or person. Sometimes you think the unexpected was exactly what you...

Closing doors is harder than hitting the OFF switch

I think everyone remembers being told to turn the lights off when leaving a room. No one truly wants to do it. It feels very final to turn off the lights as you walk away. So, we don’t. We find any excuse to leave it on just a little bit longer. There are...

Life doesn’t often “just happen”

The fact is we all make choices every second of every day. Sometimes we don’t even realize it’s a choice. We wake up, get ready, head off to work (or whatever). We chose a route at some point and never deviate, so we forget we are making a choice. Heck, we...
