Prince

Day 21 Realized I didn’t write .. despite thinking about it all day. That’s progress right ? Prince has a lawsuit in progress headed toward settlements despite being dead .. think on that. Settlement relating to a 2007 YouTube video and the concept of fair use .. crazy! What’s the legacy?

Journey of Discovery

Day 19 Spent this day chatting with my oldest son. Organic in nature, a whole day of just talking. About everything ‚Ķfrom racism, to college, to filmmaking, and relationships. As a sit and admire his own journey of discovery, I am ignited to be on one of my own. Admiring his season, his grasp of…

Stay Woke

Day 17 and 18 I have come to realize I don’t always have the best view of a situation while I am currently in it. While I was on active duty, in the Air Force, I fussed and complained. I remember wishing, most days, wishing it was all over and how stupid the rules were….

No One Else

Day 16 No one else like you. No one else pays attention. No one else believes the things you do. No one else sees what you see. So what? So what, if you have a grand vision but no one else ever gets on board or sees what you see? Do you stop writing the…

I’ve Got This – Day 15

The Lord continues to give me those pockets of sunshine that I prayed for a few days ago. Whenever I start to feel overwhelmed, inadequate, insecure, or afraid (when you think about it, it’s all just rooted in fear anyway), He reminds me in some way that I’ve got this! Like this evening, after our…

The Second Ten

Day 15, Day 20 & 22 It was Panama City, FL and I can remember what the gate looked like. What the pool behind the gate looked like. I remember it was right next to the ocean. Part of the campground where we were camped for sabbatical summers. The sign excluded anyone under 11 without…

Be All Here – Day 14

Tomorrow begins my 6-day orientation for the MTR (Memphis Teacher Residency) program. Tonight was the welcome dinner for the class of 2019, my class. The director, David (who I swear is a pastor on his off days because of the way he speaks) gave us a few pointers or tips on how to be successful…

Secret Smurfs

Day 14 There must be a secret place where all my good ideas go to hide when it is time to deliver. All throughout the day, especially the mornings, I feel like I am flowing and have lots of ideas to write about……lots of ideas, intriguing thoughts. Fun stories. Fast forward to night time to…

Perspective – Day 13

What I have to keep in mind is that people will give you advice based on their own personal experiences, their mindsets, and the way they view the world and other people. It’s so easy to get caught up in another person’s opinion about a thing. I have to be very very careful with that…

Addictions

Day 13 A friend is struggling with something addictive. Something that she knows isn’t good for her but takes part in it anyway. Something that could drive her life into total chaos–and in fact, has–but still can’t seem to totally let it go. It seems so obvious and clear that it is not good for…
