Crazy does

parents at High School graduation
Next up, College graduation. Crazy.

Crazy does.

Crazy does as crazy is.

Crazy does wonderful things for humanity.

Crazy makes breakthroughs in things that need breakthroughs. You know, like an urgent need for a Covid-19 vaccine in 2020.

Just thought of two really crazy things:

  1. Living a disorganized life
  2. Lowering your standards

Be well and remain amazed (and crazy).

Vladamir Putin at a desk
February 22, 2022. When was the last time you saw Putin smile? Or a photo of him exercising – like a walk, jog, swim, yoga? Note: The other side will always pick uncomplimentary photos. Have seen enough video of Putin to know he knows how to smile. Today’s iPhone photo is from a TV video report i captured from the couch.

Happy to be alive today?

Remind your face.

Happy present moment.

Preaching what you practice?

sermon notes
Top right is a direct quote from Pastor Chuck. i added the “hyper local” note.

Pastor Chuck said, “Plan A is the local Church. There is no plan B.”

i go one step further to say that Plan A is hyper-local, the people you live next to and the families you drive by before turning down your street.

.think .differently

Being different is better than being better.

Note: On yesterday’s walk to the 9:30AM service, stopped to talk to Mike, who’s home is separated from Lakeside Church only by the Church’s chain-link fence. Anyway, after talking with Mike, asked if i could give him a hug. He accepted. Church is every step. Had to jog the next half-mile to the Church to make up for the time spent talking with Mike. Totally not an inconvenience.

Church, please

Church, please, help us.

Church, are you behaving in a respectful, neighborly, inclusive way?

The noise level from the February 19, 2022 (yesterday) wedding reception was off-the-charts. The event was held outside in the Church Porte-Cochere area.

Do you know that just a 3dB increase in volume doubles the volume?

Now imagine going from 60dB to 100+dB.

It becomes residential noise pollution that defies logic, understanding, and practicality.

As wedding receptions go, sound volume was typical. So loud you have to shout ear to ear to be heard.

However, outside, surrounded by residential neighborhoods on all sides, totally disrespectful. By anyone’s standards, totally unacceptable noise levels.

Just checking for clarity, no one is above the law, right?

Note: This post (every post) is me writing to me, with the purpose of leaving a trail for our Son in case i’m not around (on the planet) and he has questions he wants to ask me directly. For example, “Hey dad, how do you handle community conflict or difference of opinion on what seems to be blatantly, and chronically, inappropriate behavior?”

Overcome-able?

Mid Life Celebration the book
Get honest with yourself.

Can you name off some things that you want as badly as your next breath?

What are you doing to make them happen?

Need honest feedback and encouragement to transform?

Please know these generalized truths…

Don’t expect anyone to be honest with you if you’re not willing to be honest with yourself.

Don’t expect anyone to be honest with you if you’re not honest with anybody else.

Now that this is on your radar…

Can you taste how your life will be transformed when you are honest with yourself, and everyone else?

What is holding you back from being honest with yourself?

Are those things real or imagined?

Are they overcome-able?
