Changing the World – One Post-It at a time

let it go post it guy1

I carry a small filing cabinet wherever I go.
It’s called my wallet.  Rather than cash,
scraps of miscellaneous paper fill it to the brim.
A piece of napkin, a post-it note, gas receipt, etc.
On each is written a reminder of something -
typically a random thought created in my head.… —-> Continue…

Because that’s what there is to do


It’s after midnight, and
by all rights I should go to sleep.
But then again, some things can’t wait.
Ever since last night a line

Hey Dad – Let’s play a game!

I’d rather spend time playing Ping Pong with Dad in the garage.

When I was a kid, we had an Atari set, a Defender & Asteroids arcade game
(actual stand up arcade games!), and a pinball machine in the basement.
We even had satellite TV- one of the first in the area!… —-> Continue…

Is your best good enough?


Is your best good enough?

This is the question I asked when I saw
a photo of a Young Marine recruit who
was giving it his all in a foot race.

His eyes were closed, face clenched
