Meaning

October 30, 2022

It was dark outside when I woke up this week. The mornings are getting colder as well (yes, even here in Los Angeles). I like that The morning gets your attention with its briskness, and I love things that get my attention. My friend and TM teacher Bob Roth, who runs the David Lynch Foundation, […]

A Touch of Heaven

October 26, 2022

“They say you forget your troubles on a trout stream, but that’s not quite it. What happens is that you begin to see where your troubles fit into the grand scheme of things, and suddenly they’re just not such a big deal anymore.” John Girrach

Hang in there

October 26, 2022

There are days, for most of us, where the darkness blocks out the sun…when, no matter how hard we try, the day is an uphill battle with the odds stacked against us. I find hope in this photo. Inside the darkness, there is a ray of hope…something to latch onto until the storm passes and […]

Tune in

October 24, 2022

“I think we all get a call of some kind at various points in our lives. Maybe not a literal phone call, but a sort of suggestion or prompting that forces us to consider how far we’re willing to go to change things, or find the truth, or discover what we’re missing.” Lisa Miller from […]

Possibility

October 23, 2022

What sense is there in gazing longingly in the rear view mirror when the magic of this moment and the possibility of tomorrow are  so much more compelling?   btw…the young girl in this photo is getting married next month in Kansas City.

Intrinsic

October 23, 2022

‘You don’t need to exhaust yourself trying to find your own value. You are not an IPhone needing an upgrade. Your value is not a condition of productivity or exercise or body shape or something you lose via inactivity. Value is not a plate that is continually spun. The value is there. It is intrinsic, […]

Hope

October 23, 2022

Nothing is stronger than a small hope that always looks up and never gives up.

Faith

October 21, 2022

We are called to be patient and kind…to realize and accept that there are speed bumps in every life. They slow us down and increase attention. Sometimes these bumps threaten to turn the world upside down forcing changes never before considered. Fortunately, we, like automobiles, have been equipped with shock absorbers to steer clear of […]

The candle lighter

October 20, 2022

In The Catholic Church, I recall how a minister would light candles on the altar before Mass. Very reverently, they would move from one candle to the next until all shone brightly. After Mass, when the church emptied, the minister would use the  same instrument to extinguish the lights. The part of the tool is […]

Buyer’s Remorse

October 18, 2022

Imagine being a member of The Walton family and paying over four billion dollars to become owners of The Denver Broncos. The team hires a new coach and trades for a highly regarded quarterback. By the second half of the sixth game of the season, you don your game faces watching unimaginable futility as fans […]

Choice

October 13, 2022

“When someone says something out loud, it is 10 times more powerful than when they think it.” Wow. I had no idea. Just the fact that negativity said out loud is so potent. Also, that it has been shown that negativity is 4 to 7 times more powerful than positivity. Then when you combine the […]

Not so fast

October 12, 2022

A very young cowboy entered the tennis club this afternoon to see the very shocked face of Devon. He said…’I just received a call from a player who asked…’did Cowboy Bob pass away?’ We both got a good laugh over it. He said my picture and a notice was posted on Instagram indicating that I’d […]

Stubborn

Arteriosclerosis is a hardening of the arteries. Psychosclerosis is a hardening of the attitudes, and it might be just as dangerous. Trevor Moawad from the book It Takes What It Takes.

Creativity

October 6, 2022

It took a while to figure this out but I think it now makes sense. Driving to the tennis club yesterday, I glanced to the left and was startled to see the huge head of a Great Dane protruding from the sun roof of a passing vehicle. I guess folks have gotten very creative to […]
