Staring at a Castle

Sometimes it’s good to change locales. I usually sit in my office, which is sans window; it’s more like a closet than an office. Very white and officy. The furniture is nice–plush even–but not enough to overcome the vapid surroundings. But today I sit in a more spacious venue. A huge window sits to my right…

Failing Faster: Not Your Mama’s Post on Failing

It sounds kinda funny, doesn’t it? Fail? Who wants to fail? But it’s the secret of a truly happy life, in my opinion. So, let’s dissect it. Failing. It sucks. I hate it. And, yet, it’s the key. Now, let’s be clear from the onset: I am not saying that failing is the key. I am…

The Answer is More Crazy, Not Less

I used to try to hide my crazy. Maybe we all do. Who wants to look like an emotional wreck? Who wants to get defensive at a relatively benign comment that is directed your way, or become overly sensitive because someone didn’t respond to you the way that you wanted? Nobody wants to appear these…

Wizards Live Life Backwards

A few years ago, I read a book that rocked my world: The Way of the Wizard, by Deepak Chopra. It’s a small book with a powerful message: you gotta BELIEVE it before you can SEE it. It’s totally the reverse of how we normally view life (and counter-intuitive). Of course, he’s not the first to write…

MY FAULTY FOUNDATION

Every General Contractor knows it. If the foundation isn’t good, the house will be no good. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but eventually. A bad foundation will not support the home upon which it is built. The same principle holds true for relationships. If the foundation is bad, the relationship cannot stand–or withstand–the test of time. I…

My Stink

Tonight, I write. No real major teaching. No date to review. I feel deflated. Kicked around like a bottle in the street. That pit in your stomach that doesn’t want to go away– of sadness. Tremendous sadness. (And, truthfully… I’m not sure that I want it to go away.) The kind of stuff that I…
