Reflection

Touch vs. Feel

Touch vs. Feel

A discussion about the senses earlier this week ran through my mind today. I reflect back on that afternoon; the smell of rain, dark clouds above and the sound of raindrops hitting the street. My friend reached out, quickly grabbing a leaf from each tree we passed. Not saving them, picking out a new one along the path. He described the rationale behind catching a small piece of each tree. What did he feel in each leaf? What made them different from the one prior? Had I felt a lamb's ear plant? W[…]
Cinderella Moment, Important Bucket and Change

Cinderella Moment, Important Bucket and Change

(Composed; 2017-Dec-10 ) Damn? I have no clue where to start. Where am I? Where have I been? At the moment I'm on a KLM flight from Helsinki to Amsterdam. I can finally manage to say, we have been to HELsinki. Passing through the aisle at the moment, the young female KLM flight attendant. I extended a genuine thank you and shared how her smile is nothing but infectious and she is beautiful. Of course, only made her smile more. A genuine compliment can go so far, a smile lasts, laughter can make […]
The Magnitude Factor of 49, The Math – #Orlando

The Magnitude Factor of 49, The Math – #Orlando

First thing this morning Nick began updating me on the Orlando news before getting out of bed. Thinking to myself, the counts have to be wrong, and once it's confirmed it won't be that bad. Departing the city and the connection online to kayak was a blessing. The Magnitude Factor of 49 (excluding shooter), victims that lost their life in Orlando early this morning. I believe those that lost are souls we lost, not simply victims. 49 - People confirmed as of 18:53. 77.9 - Average Life Expectancy i[…]

The perfect piece of art, a song, and a napkin #MondayMotivation #Music #theHumanElement

Over the weekend Nick and I stumbled upon Sugarboo & Co at Town Brookhaven. I entered the store and froze, gazing at a piece of art while a song (Spotify: Heartbeats; Jose Gonzalez ) hit my heart giving me a sense of calm. A minute... or two passed, unaware of the price I grabbed the art and gave it to the employee to purchase it. This store has incredible things, all unique, many intricate things that you cannot find anywhere else. This new addition to the house needed to be in the heart of[…]
HURRY! Planes, Trains, Automobiles and Abraham Lincoln? #TuesdayTakeaway

HURRY! Planes, Trains, Automobiles and Abraham Lincoln? #TuesdayTakeaway

On Saturday, May 16th I was fortunate to tour the FAA tower at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport through the New PDK Airport Association.  The tower has a 360 wrap around deck where you can see the entire airport and downtown. Photos | Exploring the tallest ATC Tower (ATL) in North America #avgeek Do you remember as a kid when you drew a Perspective? At a view of nearly 400 feet above the worlds busiest airport (2014 Passenger Volume),  the wind whispered the word Perspective in m[…]

Effie, Brace yourself, Thank You Mrs. Doubtfire… #TuesdayTakeaway

Today's Tuesday Takeaway, Mrs. Doubtfire In 1993, Thanksgiving ushered in a new character named Mrs. Doubtfire who continues to bring laughter some 21 years later.  I'd like to share with you one of my favorite scenes of the movie, the interviews. Do you have a favorite character? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=is0RMnx0sAo My favorite inquiry is a toss-up between I am Job and don't make me get the hose. While traveling over the weekend I debated whether a Mrs. Doubtfire clip from the movie woul[…]

How One Restless Night Changed My Life #theHumanElement

Mantra: man-tra (noun) - (Originally in Hinduism and Buddhism) A word or sound repeated to aid concentration in meditation. A Vedic hymn a statement or slogan repeated frequently I often thought the phrase Happy Monday was an oxymoron. For those in the corporate world, it's the start of the work week and conclusion of the short two day break. The past thirty days has forever changed my perspective on life which will continue to ignite my pursuit in the better of humanity.  People […]
7 Days Since Jet Drag, A Blank Stare #JetDrag

7 Days Since Jet Drag, A Blank Stare #JetDrag

It have reached a solid  brain block in deciphering what and when to compose next. All too often a very familiar trait I have learned of myself is that something which should be simple my mind sees it as quite the opposite.  Overthinking, perhaps something with photos, screenshots, outputs, what else more? Do I need to write a longer post to appease people and keep them interested? Can I post an update about #theHumanElement out of sequence to the other happenings in my life? What I ca[…]
