Let me ask you a question:

Would you rather give up bathing for a month or give up the internet for a month??

My Daily Observation: 12/14/17


The world is changing rapidly.  Just when you think you have the latest television technology something new is released.  Mobile phone technology is advancing so quickly that soon we will not actually have to have the device on us to call others.  We get news at the moment it happens.  We are connected more than ever before; and yet humans have never been more depressed.

Change is not always a good thing, but it is the only thing that remains the same.  We can fight it, resist it, deny it, doubt it, but change is happening regardless.



Blog networking is one of the most undervalued and underused strategies for most.  But I believe it is at the core for growing a blog.

You will find links in this post to help eliminate some of the work; all you have to do is LIKE, COMMENT and FOLLOW others. The more you network with other blogs, the more other blogs will network with you!

My Daily Observation: 12/13/17


Staying “busy” is one of the biggest distraction on the planet, but it doesn’t always mean one is doing their best or being productive.  And many wear “busy” like a badge of honor all the while failing to realize they are stuck in the same spot; like a car spinning its wheels stuck in mud.

I get a lot done in a week, but am cautious not to fall into the trap of running around doing extra stuff just to feel busy.   I also avoid using phrases like “I’ve just got so much to do” or “I’d love to but I don’t have time”.  I’m not a fan of the “no time” excuse.  When I sense I am struggling with time, I take a moment and conduct a process check; basically take a time out.  Then I look at how I’m using my time and most often I find that I am not working or scheduling my time effectively.

At any rate, if you struggle with being “busy” I encourage you to conduct a process check on your use of your time.

Learn to protect it like gold.

Be a better scheduler.

Get a touch more organized.




Let Me Ask You a Question – 12/13/17


Let me ask you a question:

If you had to choose, would you rather have an easy job working for someone else or work for yourself but work incredibly hard?

Tracks in the Snow

Everything in and around Denmark

One night
one longer than usual
when the snows fell,
when the dogs howled
when the moon hid,
and you,

And what of you
my dearest, my love?
how I searched in vain
the tracks in the snow
leading away from me, leading
somewhere, someplace
where I was not,

When the snows fell
was my heart breaking
were the howls of the snow dogs
signaling something
something hidden, away away
something out of my reach
out of my sight?

One night
one longer than the others
when we held each other forsaking
all others
when the dogs sang
to the moon, to the stars
when the dogs sang
to our love,

How I searched for you
my dearest, my love
when the clouds rained down
like snow,
when the wolves howled
when their tracks disturbed yours
disturbed yours,

When we loved each other
when the sun shone
when the…

Little Clifty Bridge

Madison Indiana Photography

little clifty 1 2017

I was hiking at Clifty Falls State Park near Madison Indiana when I came across this beautiful scene. I caught the sun as it slid beneath the rugged hillside that surrounds Little Clifty Falls and the bridge that spans it. Timing is such a major player in photography and once again I ended up at the right place at the right time !!

Gripes, grumps and grumbles………..

First, this won’t be the last time I mumble grumpily about other blogs…it isn’t the first and knowing me, there will be others.

But this afternoon I was just interrupted yet again by an extremely LOUD commercial while trying to read a post.

I understand that bloggers monetize their blogs. I even understand…
