Coming Out Of The Darkness

Ever get scared in the night? In the dark, our imaginations can run wild and things can seem scarier than they actually are. Every little thing becomes a monster. Typical minor problems feel overwhelmingly impossible to deal with in the dead of the night then in the light of day. And in those foreboding moments, has anyone ever told you that things will look better in the morning? Why is that? The darkness shrouds reality and twists it into something hideous. Unrecognizable. Unmanageable. When in truth —in the light—it’s not that terrifying, not so unmanageable.

On The Road That Leads To Nowhere

All roads lead somewhere—right? And other than the ones that are clearly marked with a ‘dead-end’ sign on them, they do.

Whether in the movies, through business or relationships most of us are probably familiar with this saying. Has anyone ever said this to you? What was your reaction? Did it feel personal?

Summer Time Blues

Do you know the song made popular in the nineties by Alan Jackson, Summer Time Blues? Originally by Eddie Cochran and even performed by The Who and others, the song talks about being stuck at work when he’d rather be out having fun in the sun. And being too young to vote he can’t get any help from the government to solve this perplexing dilemma. What’s he gonna do ‘cause there ain’t no cure for the summer time blues? But when I think of Summer Time Blues I think of right now. The time after Labor Day when summer is winding down and the kids are all back in school

Labor Of Love

September is upon us and time to shift from long summer days into not-so-long autumn days. Some of us may be ready for the shift. Cooler days and nights. Bon-fires and hoodies. Brightly colored leaves and pumpkins. And we kick it all off with Labor Day.
