Flying home from New York (JFK) to Atlanta I notice two people seated one before the other along the aisle. Each in deep focus, broad, yet one can see, a different approach. The woman in 25E, MacBook powered up, PowerPoint open, scrolling through presentations, spreadsheets, listening to her air buds, frequently pausing, raising her hand to her face, searching graphics, tapping backspace, edit and delete. The gentleman in 26E, leather-bound journal open, fine point ink pen, listening to Spotify […]
(Composed; 2017-Dec-10 ) Damn? I have no clue where to start. Where am I? Where have I been? At the moment I'm on a KLM flight from Helsinki to Amsterdam. I can finally manage to say, we have been to HELsinki. Passing through the aisle at the moment, the young female KLM flight attendant. I extended a genuine thank you and shared how her smile is nothing but infectious and she is beautiful. Of course, only made her smile more. A genuine compliment can go so far, a smile lasts, laughter can make […]
My adventure to Europe with my sister is coming to an end, posting this from Delta 170, CDG-MSP. Heidi with Delta has been top notch, a great trip back to the US. Trump, that’s the Apprentice... am I the Undercover Boss… say what? Over the past week I had three interactions which made me reflect on my journey in life and give thought to pivotal moments that changed me. A quick search through my site, I found a post from July 2, 2011, Helping out a Stranger in the Armed Forces, Reflecting Back on[…]
What the hell do I write about? I wish I could yell at the top of my lungs, give out hugs, call my family, say I love you to everyone. My heart has ached all day,how I feel tonight in my heart. On May 15th, I wrote about Jane Mitchell and her daughter Gretchen - Blog Post : An unsung hero, daughter battling cancer, will you dance? At 12:26 am Gretchen's soul took flight to the heavens above, leaving behind her husband, two baby girls, and her mother Jane. From the time it took me to write that […]
More often I find myself entering a bubble lit by a lantern, which I can control the brightness and extinguish when ready. The flickering light surrounds the room, shadows appear in corners. Collectively what I see around me, and feel inside, I think deep into my heart and ask. Stay with Me. Think about past lovers, potential lovers, and moments when you wished you weren’t alone. The differences between the pursuit of lust over love, and people being honest with what they truly seek out. .... “S[…]
Last night in California with the family, stopped some photo sorting to take in a beautiful sunset. One never knows when they will see such a beautiful thing again. #cheers[…]
Enjoying Helen today and as it approaches to 1am, I have spent a few minutes of time reflecting on that day in history, 9/11. A day that for our generation will be paramount similar to where were you during Pearl Harbor or when JFK was shot. No doubt you remember where you were when you heard the news, but my story I often try not to think about as it all seems too surreal to fathom. My good friend is a flight attendant for United Airlines, at the time we had all plans to visit NYC, explore the […]
