Let's celebrate today

"It matters not how long we live, but how."

Festus Bailey




I mentioned to you the other day that I had attended a celebration of the life of my late friend Peter. I just want to remind you that neither of us has to limit the celebration of our lives until after…

I am taking a short detour

Do not follow where the path may lead.  Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Lets you and me have a monumental day

Climb slowly, steadily, enjoying each passing moment; and the view from the summit will serve as a fitting climax for the journey.

As some of you know I have been trying to limit my commitments to things where I would not be too critical or…

Come on, we can do it

Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.

Sing Anyway

Some days there won't be a song in your heart.  Sing anyway.

I am moving a little too slow at the moment and have an early breakfast meeting so I am again retrieving from the vault.

Listen to Andy

A single conversation with a wise man is better than ten years of study.

Where have all the good men gone?

The great blessing of mankind are within us and within our reach; but we shut our eyes, and like people in the dark, we fall foul upon the very thing we search for, without finding it.





As I have searched for the good life I have learned that a Timex watch keeps about as…

Today is your day

Treat yourself, you’re worth it!

Do you know how good you are?

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.

Got a minute? Ray could use your help today.

Hi all


I sure could use your help today. As many of you know I spend much of my time assisting OASIS in their effort to provide meaningful programs to the over fifty crowd. Here in Indiana we receive no government funding, limited outside assistance while providing services to the more than 25,000 members. It is done with little money and thousands of volunteer hours by hundreds of its members. Now Sams Club makes it possible for you to help today by just taking a few minutes…

Let's stamp out stress!

I've have had many troubles in my life but the worst of them never came.

Mine was great, how was yours?

It’s the game of life. Do I win or do I lose? One day they’re gonna shut the game down. I gotta have as much fun and go around the board as many times as I can before it’s my turn to leave.

Tupac Shakur




I hope your weekend was as good as mine. As most of you know my hobby is…

Will there be a new you?

Most people are other people.  Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.

Oscar Wilde




As you know I have focused on finding yourself over the last few days. I should not have been surprised by the responses I…

Who are you really?

We are so accustomed to disguise ourselves to others that in the end we become disguised to ourselves.

Yesterday I mentioned my friend who seemed to be trapped in a job that left her little time for herself. In my experience just…

The best decision I ever made

It's been a great trip so far!

Well today I am, for some time now I have been dedicating much of my time to helping our local chapter of Oasis serve the 50 plus population. We have more than 25,000 members in…
