The Perfect Playlist Pt 2

So my wife discovered a band from a song we encountered on the television show, Friday Night Lights. We have taken the deep dive and just recently watched their documentary, May it Last. The band is the Avett Brothers. Great Songwriting and instrumentation, and brilliant lyrics.  We highly recommend them.  I created a playlist entitled […]

The Perfect Playlist Part 1

“Let them praise His name with dancing and make music to Him with tambourine and lyre.” Psalms 149:3 Music is a big part of our lives.  My wife and I have many a playlist for different moods and situations.  We love music across genres.  If its good and we like it.  We have it.  But […]

Apply Work Here

One of my workouts last week I noticed something.  It wasn’t anything novel and many people have experienced it.  Basically, I wasn’t having any fun working out.  Let’s be honest some physical activity just isn’t fun.  Usually it’s something we’re not good at.  I was in the midst of an 18 second forward plank.  I […]

Protect your Creativity

“More than anything you guard, protect your mind, for life flows from it.” Proverbs 4:23 (CEB) I have a hypothesis about my creativity.  I noticed that I only have a certain amount of it each day.  If I use it all up at work I don’t have any left over at night (like for writing […]

Steppin’ on Up

A gust of wind disturbed the leafless branches as I felt the coolness of the air matched by the warmth of the sun.  The sky was a clear blue marked by a few white cottony clouds moving spiritedly over the earth. I noticed it all at once and just enjoyed the moment.  I was totally […]

Count off: 1, 2, K, B

So quick post tonight.  I am doing my workouts with my daughter when I get home from work.  Well, daddy does the workout and the little one plays in the vicinity.  Tonight we practiced counting.  I was doing a series of planks for 18 seconds each.  I counted out loud so she could count along […]

Get Some Rest

Go, go, go…seems to be a moniker for our society and even when people “slow down” we do so by keeping the data stream flowing.  Constantly, plugged in so that we don’t miss anything.  They call babies who are hard to get to take naps, “FOMO” babies – Fear Of Missing Out.  Maybe we never […]

I Forgot…Forgive me

So yesterday after dinner I remembered that I forgot to do my workout for the day.  Oops!  I had gotten home later than usual and got wrapped up in all the things that need to happen at that hour.  Prepping dinner, cleaning up after a toddler, getting dinner ready for and feeding the little girl, […]

Men Who Stare at Trees

One of the first things I do when I get into work is to pull out my Inner Balance sensor and fire up the app to do some Balanced Breathing to get centered before I start work in earnest.  But I got to admit some days I cheat.  I will fire up my computer and […]
