Have a Great Summer

When was the last time you pulled out a yearbook from school and read some of the things people wrote?

Every entry speaks of one specific memory.

Every entry speaks of a friendship bond that will never be broken.

Every entry speaks of staying in touch through the summer.

And every entry speaks of creating more memories.

If only we could remember these lessons as we get older...

Cherish the memories.

Make every friendship as deep as possible.

Always try and reach out to stay connected.

And...strive to make more memories.

Pretty simple...isn't it.

Have a Great Summer!

Need a light?

Ever need a spark?

Creative juices running low?

If so...try some of these to light or re-light your fire.

All of them work for me. Depends on the mood, time of day and what kind of spark I need at the time...but these tend to do the trick.

Make something with legos. Matter of fact...deconstruct first and then make something completely different.

Go for a long run.



Lie on your back and stare at the clouds.

Draw (which is an advanced version of doodling).

Sing in the shower.

Write words...not sentences.


Try yoga.

Do a puzzle.

Shoot hoops by yourself.

Go for a walk.

Listen to music.

Drink coffee.

Drink wine.

Play with your kids.

Go out on a date (it's even cooler if you sit at the bar).

Talk to a bartender.

Sit in complete silence for five minutes.

Want to try something really crazy? Try all of these in one day. I promise there would be enough of a spark to light every cigarette ever smoked in one season of Mad Men!

Now go ahead and light your fire. Jim Morrison would be proud.

Long Time no Talk

Went back to Michigan this past week for work. Had a chance to reconnect with some old friends.

Got me thinking about when was the last time I reconnected with myself.

Part of that is this blog.

Been doing a lot of writing lately...but very little for my own pleasure.

If you are like me and you feel like you have been running in the hamster wheel for awhile...take time to reconnect with yourself. Do something that brings you back. Once you know where you know where you need to go.

Long time no talk. How have you been?
