Choose Life. . .

Bill McKenna has said: "Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in one pretty and well- preserved piece,
but to skid across the line broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out, leaking oil, shouting GERONIMO!"

Moses said: "...therefore, choose life..." (Deuteronomy 30:19).

I choose life - with all its choices, challenges and changes!

How about you?

“Hello, again, hello…”

Does anyone remember that wistful Neil Diamond song? How does one say “Hello, again, hello…” after such a long absence? Nearly ten months! Do I slink away in shame, never to be heard from again? Do I start a whole new blog page, pretending this one never happened? Bottom line: Does it really matter? Does anyone care?

A friend and fellow-blogger recently thanked me for commenting on his blog, saying there were so few comments, he wondered if anyone read his—I add “excellent”—fitness blog. We enter the blogging experience crafting words we expect the entire world to read. And that is a technical possibility, but of course, a virtual improbability. So we continue putting our thoughts and opinions and pitches out there, hoping to connect with, inspire and encourage at least a few.

So, I humbly whisper, “She’s b – a – a – c – k . . .
