Wheel–Daily Prompt


“The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying: “Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause you to hear My words.” Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something at the wheel. And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to make.”
“But now, O Lord, You are our Father; We are the clay, and You our potter; And all we are the work of Your hand.”

Let Me Ask You A Question – 6/27/17


This morning I posted about having troubles sleeping.  Let me ask you a question…

What is your secret to a good night’s sleep?

not good enough

take a walk

Beer. That was my favorite drink. But you know what was better than that? Tequila. Put these two dancing in a crowd of friends and strangers and more friends, I quickly and inevitably became someone to regret the next day.

What I remember from my past, is not remembering enough. I was desperately unaware of the capacity with which my flesh was standing, and I wonder how much longer it would have taken to fully rot down to my core. I thought I was close.

Which is the lie that ultimately forced me to sit up and listen for the voice that had been calling me for years. My lowest moment in life transformed into a glimpse of eternity, that shed me of all the shame, fear and decisions I had made.

Accepting the idea that I could be good enough for God, was the most self-provoking challenge I had…

What Was Right

Everything in and around Denmark

What was right for her
a topic to be
what she did
why she felt obliged to please
her mother, her boyfriend, everyone else
not wanting to disappoint
not wanting to burden others

but the pain remained

What was right for her
being her own worst critic
was never the question
was never the solution

What was right for everyone else
giving the right impression
not wanting to step on toes
not wanting to step out of line

but the pain remained

What was right for her
was not for me to say
I only could recommend
suggest, encourage, listen
I could only try to understand

when the pain was too much
to bear

What was right for her
something slow in realization
difficult to admit
hard to accept

What was right for her….

Danny’s World: I Didn’t Sleep Well



I’m not exactly sure why, but I haven’t been sleeping soundly the last couple of nights.  This morning I woke feeling drained of energy.  I have an office day today and I am having lunch with my old boss, Jamey.  It will be nice to catch up.  I’ll remember to take pics.

Let Me Ask You A Question – 6/26/17


Let me ask you a question…

Do you have anything special you do on Monday morning to get going for the work week?

Momentary, fleeting…transient.


This week’s Word Press Photo Challenge is the word Transient. Transient; a momentary , fleeting thing.  The  photos that immediately came to mind are the  ones of a horse in mid stride. That airborne moment.


In dressage that is the moment we aim to achieve more of. More airtime. More floating. More cadence.


It is a feeling of freedom. It is transient, fleeting and gone in an instant but it is the feeling of flying.  How lucky for a human to be able to feel that even if only for a moment.

Danny’s World: I’m Torn On the Issue Of Pit Bulls


I saw a video on Facebook today about a guy in California who lost his dog to the city because it got loose and killed the neighbors cat in the cat’s yard.  The dog then died in their custody from a heat stroke after being left for hours in a hot truck.  The guy is upset as any dog owner would be.  You can read about it here: justice for Cuda.

I am torn over the pit bull issue because I know pit owners who have great dogs.  But I have also come face-to-face with aggressive pits and it is terrifying.

We have a neighbor who owns a pit who lunges even when on the leash.  Now most people will argue that it’s the owner who makes the dog.  And I agree.  But the problem I have is trusting a dog who has the power in one bite to snap my arm or rip an animal to shreds.

I have had to stand my ground with an aggressive pit and I almost peed my pants I was so scared.
