My blogging has slowed down.

My life has speeded up.

I stopped the other morning, (no traffic within sight) as the first rays of a new day, the moon and Venus lighted up the sky.

As mentioned here, this is the first time in four years that I’ve felt useful and energetic.

I have found an organization that genuinely wants to adapt and grow . . . and the owner of that organization has challenged me to lead them into the future.

I am also assisting another organization plan for the next 30 years and beyond.  I’m stretching, but energized.

While I never saw it, I think I was living at some level of depression for almost four years. Those who are close to me comment that I am a different person.

I’ll take it.

Life is full of new experiences. Keep ;looking for them until the day you die.

I’m kind of like a baby that discovers a mirror and is obsessed with what she sees.

I’m obsessed with the tasks I see before me.

I was humbled for a few years, but God provided me lots of time to think, grow . . .  and blog more often.

Part of this situation has begun to  stabilize, so I should have more time for my hobby.

  2. So glad to hear this Ray. I feel like my life has been on hold these last few months. To much weirdness out there so I just stepped back and took a break. Kind of feels like this summer has been a waiting season and I am wondering what will be when the waiting is done.

    I think the most important thing for everyone is to have some kind of meaning in their life. I’m glad you’ve found it.

    I hear you brother; I really do. It’s wonderful to have that feeling of seeing life through a new lens and one that gives purpose to life — your life, the only one you’ll ever have. I’ve been spinning legal plates for the last decade and it’s not so much that I’ve given up on the job or profession but I think it’s the wrong person for the wrong industry. I’m no longer expressed to chase anything new but perhaps, like you, I might find something to fix my gaze for a few years more.

    Blessings, Julian

      Well, all I can say is you have to keep looking under rocks until you find the diamond. It can be very, very discouraging at times, but it’s the only way. Good luck and keep looking.

    that must be a great feeling of being energized again – and I wish you the best with your new ventures. I hope you share more about this 30-year plan – that sounds fascinating to look so far into the future.
