Did you see it?

The question is not what you look at, but what you see.

Henry David Thoreau

 

If you have been reading the Daily for some time you have heard me lament the fact that I, like many others, miss a lot of what is around me. Often I catch myself not seeing something only because it has always been there and yet when…

You're welcome to come with us!

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.

Helen Keller

 

I met yesterday morning with a top administrator of a local university and the executive director of one of our cities premier senior serving organization. I commented on how I was concerned about many of my older friends who seem to be afraid to move…

It works well for us!

It is the things in common that make relationships enjoyable, but it is the little differences that make them interesting.

Todd Ruthman

 

I have good news, I did not fail my first real cardiac rehab session last Friday, I didn’t do much but I did do what I was told to do. Today we get more serious. I am…

I was disappointed!

The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way.

Robert Kiyosaki

 

I have often been accused of not taking things as seriously as I should. As I have shared with you in the past I have been fortunate to realize that you can’t change what has already happened and that rather than agonizing over it, it is best to learn from it and move…

Take the next two days off!

A weekend wasted isn't a wasted weekend.

Author Unknown

 

A few weeks ago I wrote in the Daily on a Friday that I thought that we needed to lock away our things-to-do lists, store our worries and just let ourselves enjoy life for a couple of days. I was pleased when I got a note from one of our readers that the message got to her just at the right moment for she was loading up work to take home that would tie her up all…

They just keep on going!

He conquers who endures.

Persius

 

I think one of the things that make my life as interesting as it has ever been is the variety of people who share their goals, wants and needs when we meet for a meal or coffee. In recent weeks I have visited with an officer of a philanthropic foundation that is funding…

I am thankful, are you?

A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy?

Albert Einstein

 

Soon it will be Thanksgiving Day and as we know it has not been an easy year for many folks. College graduates have had difficulty finding jobs and many have had to move back home. Others have seen their…

Technology... the knack of so arranging the world that we don't have to experience it.

Max Frisch

 

As I reported to you on Friday I was off to my first real cardiac rehab session. They took my vitals, wired me up with a heart monitor, stored the results at rest and then told me to take a leisurely walk around…

Thank you veterans!

In all my life I've only seen a dozen real killers, but I've seen ten thousand people that would stand by and let it happen. Which is the greater evil?

Gene Roddenberry

Be a Nudger

“You can’t change the past. You can’t even change the future, in the sense that you can only change the present one moment at a time, stubbornly, until the future unwinds itself into the stories of our lives.”

I had my first cardiac rehab event yesterday, it went really well, we spent the whole time talking about what will happen in the future. All we did was go through my history and life style. I did not have any…
