We are born to live and die

The goal of every living thing is to reproduce. Period.
Dandelion seeds
Mission accomplished.

We are born to reproduce.

After we reproduce (become parents), decline begins.

Two thoughts:

  1. There’s an exception to every rule (even this rule)
  2. Joy is a natural part of the pre-parenting stage (parenting is hard work)

Wisdom: Use your human ability to exploit, scale, enjoy, and teach the second thought – making joy last well past the pre-adult responsibility stage.

Praying for uneventful childbirth

Florida Hospital Orlando
We often take excellence for granted, as if it somehow is a given.


Praying for uneventful childbirth.

Not every pregnancy is routine.

If ever there was a time to hope for a status quo event, this would be one of them.

Otherwise, average isn’t what makes something memorable.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Happy birthday to me…

Today is the 56th anniversary of my birth.

Four more years, God willing, to accomplish everything i want to do in life.

What’s your deadline?

You do have one, right?

Of course i know no one knows.

But that’s just an excuse for not living with focus and discipline.

Everything Is A Miracle

Einstein Was Correct

“There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.”Albert Einstein

Attending Kevin’s funeral on Christmas Eve, this quote from Albert Einstein was printed on the cover of the funeral bulletin.

Have you ever been struck with a profound thought or observation, when you least expect it? When it’s presented in such a deceptively simple format – in this case, printed text?

One more thing struck me from attending Kevin’s funeral, but not until this very moment. Kevin’s son, maybe three years old, was there, of course. Estimating there were 300 people attending.

But the only other child I saw was the one in my arms most of the Mass.
