The Dawning

This view reminded me while flying this morning of when things can look so dreary for a long, long time, and then how suddenly the morning sun can appear.

Objects in the Mirror May Be Worse Than They First Appear

Most of my life I had much better than 20/20 vision. Until I got old. That is age 40. Suddenly I had 20/30 near sight, but still 20/20 distant. This has lead me to make a stunning discovery. I now completely understand why you so often see old men walking around with 3 inch long hair growing out of their ears and nostrils. They can’t see it when they look in the mirror!

I was getting ready for work the other day, and I thought I was all finished, thinking perhaps I looked like…


But for some reason I put on my reading glasses, and what I actually looked like was this…

Condescending Weather

News flash: When you are prepping for dangerously cold winter storms, make sure you close all of the exterior doors on your house!

Thank you Weather Channel for potentially saving my life! I am too stupid to know these things that some might consider blatantly obvious to any human being with a brain.

Yes, they literally gave those instructions the other day.

I have noticed that they dish these jewels of wisdom out on a daily basis. They must really be a smug group of people.

The ironic thing is they almost never give an accurate forecast! If they say in 3 days its gonna be sunny and 53 degrees, you can bank on that being wrong. What other job can one have where you are wrong almost 100% of the time, yet keep your job, AND get to speak down to your customers like they are idiots?

It All Counts

I’m sitting here on a snowy day off, listening to a Daryl Coley cd, loving every song. In a few days I hit the end of my 51st year of this life. I’ve spent a lot of time looking back over my life, smiling a lot, so grateful for so much. There are many regrets, many things I wish so bad I could go back in time and change. Looking forward I still just want my life to mean something.


We all have heard the phrase “make every day count”. One of my regrets is wasted time; all the wasted days doing nothing, all the wasted opportunities to have spent time with people that are no longer around. I know that everything I do or don’t do counts in the end.

I have loved listening to Daryl Coley sing ever since I was a teenager. As I sit here hearing his unique voice do incredible things only he could do just that way, I know he died last year. Wow, how is that possible? I have seen so many pass who in my mind should still be young. Walter Hawkins, Andrea Crouch, Lance Appleton, friends I grew up with, former pastors, aunts and uncles, even my grandmother, just to name a very few. I don’t wish to write something negative, I simply am making the point that OMG, life flies by!

So yes, make every day count. They will whether you intend for them to or not, so just make sure to make them count for something that you will be glad for later.
