Tame Impala – Solitude is Bliss

Where would I be without Pearl Jam?  I must send them a heartfelt letter. Understood. Now this band… BANG!! Wow… they just work.

Solitude. Peace. Reflection. The greatest metamorphosis in one’s life requires it..

Work Works


Yes the days are long, the days are busy and I am tired by the end of them.  But the work/philanthropy focus is positive.  Work works!  Hopefully my child, clients and community will be better for my ongoing efforts. 🙂

Flower God, God of the Spring…

Aims of Life

Robert Louis Stevenson

Flower god, god of the spring, beautiful, bountiful,
Cold-dyed shield in the sky, lover of versicles,
Here I wander in April Cold, grey-headed;

and still to my Heart, Spring comes with a bound, Spring the deliverer,
Spring, song-leader in woods, chorally resonant;
Spring, flower-planter in meadows,
Child-conductor in willowy
Fields deep dotted with bloom, daisies and crocuses:
Here that child from his heart drinks of eternity:
O child, happy are children!
She still smiles on their innocence,
She, dear mother in God, fostering violets,
Fills earth full of her scents, voices and violins:
Thus one cunning in music
Wakes old chords in the memory:
Thus fair earth in the Spring leads her performances.
One more touch of the bow, smell of the virginal
Green – one more, and my bosom
Feels new life with an ecstasy..

I have poured a TON of time and resources into re-launching… here’s to a successful repositioning of the business and a new start that is well underway! Hopefully our timing with BlackBerry’s new offerings in 2013 is well timed.

BlackBerry LIVE in Orlando next month in May.  Warm weather if it is still snowy here. Ugh..

Hero, In My Place & Broken Smiley Face.

Went to an Ottawa Life Magazine social event tonight at EQ3 in my capacity as President and Co-Chair of Oktoberfest Ottawa Inc. Ironic as Kichessippi Beer was there as the beverage server. It was our mutual brainchild that spawn Oktoberfest Ottawa. Yeah…Stand down. 7 months… nothing. Nary a friggin single tipple. I can read and adhere to documents. Leave it fucking be. No need to put a Cork in it.

Anyways… Fuck where am I, oh yeah: Single Social Scene. Surreal. Some days you realize you have a long, long way to go despite the healthier path you are now on.

Heading back home, this song was playing as I got into my car.  It shook up an already emotional self.

Followed by this song: Fucking Coldplay… Christ sakes.

The one two punch of songs just completely wiped me out driving back home.

Broken Smily Face

Think. Tears.

Are You With The ‘Right’ Partner?

partner & relationship

During a seminar, a woman asked,” How do I know if I am with the right person?”
… The author then noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so he said, “It depends. Is that your partner?” In all seriousness, she answered “How do you know?” Let me answer this question because the chances are good that it’s weighing on your mind replied the author.

Here’s the answer.

Every relationship has a cycle… In the beginning; you fall in love with your partner. You anticipate their calls, want their touch, and like their idiosyncrasies. Falling in love wasn’t hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn’t have to DO anything. That’s why it’s called “falling” in love.

People in love sometimes say, “I was swept of my feet.”Picture the expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something happened TO YOU.

Falling in love is a passive and spontaneous experience. But after a few months or years of being together, the euphoria of love fades. It’s a natural cycle of EVERY relationship.

Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse’s idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts. The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship; you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage.

At this point, you and/or your partner might start asking, “Am I with the right person?” And as you reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience with someone else. This is when relationships breakdown.
The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it’s learning to love the person you found.

People blame their partners for their unhappiness and look outside for fulfillment. Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes. Infidelity is the most common. But sometimes people turn to work, a hobby, friendship, excessive TV, or abusive substances. But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your relationship. It lies within it.

I’m not saying that you couldn’t fall in love with someone else. You could. And TEMPORARILY you’d feel better. But you’d be in the same situation a few years later. Because (listen carefully to this):

The key to succeeding in a Relationship is not finding the right person; it’s learning to love the Person you found.

SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. You have to work on it day in and day out. It takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it demands WISDOM. You have to know WHAT TO DO to make it work. Make no mistake about it.
Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your partner), Just as there are physical laws Of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. If you know how to apply these laws, the results are predictable.

Love is therefore a “decision”. Not just a feeling.
Remember this always: God determines who walks into your life. It is up to you to decide who you let walk away, who you let stay, and who you refuse to let GO!

Stay Gold PonyBoy, Stay Gold.

The Outsiders movie is 30 years old this year. My 13 year old daughter is now reading SE Hinton’s classic and watching Coppola’s masterpiece in school. Praise be the time! Seems like a long, long time ago AND seems like yesterday all at once. Memories then and now.

Stay Gold. Stevie Wonder.
