42 Days

June 24 means 42 days.  It almost looks dyslexic.

Forty-two days until the prelims at the 2009 Master’s Track & Field World Championships.

Normally, this would mean nothing to me.

This year is different.

I’ll be running in them.  Seriously.

My goal is to be in the worst lane, Lane 8.

Visit www.Lane8.org to see why.

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

Got Soul?

Got soul?

Yesterday morning, at Church, I wrote down two things our Deacon said:

  1. What gift am I giving my children?
  2. Deep and unspeakable suffering.

These two groups of words resonated with me.  And while I can’t put my finger on it at the moment, I am processing it and will figure out if it’s something I can write about.

Have  GREAT Monday.  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

jeff noel is now on Facebook.

Like yesterday’s post about joining Twitter a few days ago, last night I joined Facebook.

So?

Exactly.

It means nothing to some and to others, it means I’m embracing the future.

The future isn’t going to wait because we aren’t ready.

It’s coming at us like a freight train.

Whether we seize the day or not, the day still comes and goes.

Before we know it, we could be on our death bed.  Seriously.

I don’t live with the fear of dying.

I live with the fear of not fully living.

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

PS.  It’s not even 7:00AM yet, and this is my 5th blog post this morning.  I’m not bragging, nor am I making any excuses, about what I do.  I just do it and if you want to criticise me or cheer for me, the choice is yours

The choice is always ours, isn’t it.  Particularly when it comes to our attitude.

Carpe diem,  jeff noel 🙂

jeff noel is now on Twitter.

Joined Twitter a few days ago.

Took the plunge.

Did you see the cover of this week’s Time Magazine?

The Time Magazine issue I have Twitter on the cover.  Seriously.

Tomorrow, I’ll tell you what I did today – in terms of social networking that is.

Hey, I hope you have a great day.  This is an exciting time we live in.  Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
