Carving Out A Life

Acts of deceleration (video)

Art is the work you do in a way that no one else does.

Acts of deceleration.

If you can slow your life down to a pace that facilitates rethinking, reprioritizing, and recommitting, your life has no choice but to accelerate towards transformation.

Love the stop sign juxtaposition. Only one place you can get this angle.

 

eating outside the grocery store
Last night’s dinner was eaten next to the Publix grocery store entrance. i sat on the ground. Pretty cool. Like being in college.

 

The simple things are the ones we should bank on.

With my family out-of-town i made the most of the evening with a bike ride.

The beauty and grind of an ordinary day

Quick call with a couple questions about Glacier National Park’s high-mountain chalet.

 

Gas tank gauge
i cannot recall the last time this happened. Maybe a decade ago? From the Tampa trip.

 

The beauty and grind of an ordinary day is a gift.

Today is all we have.

Unwrap, appreciate, and enjoy it.

Hear the news from Cheryl that Dad’s Nursing Home is recommending Hospice for Dad.

Go to bed remembering what i wrote in Mid Life Celebration: rethink • reprioritize • recommit

The three most magnificent days in our life are the day we are born, the day we figure out why, and the day we die.

Praying Dad sees it the same way.

Dad is 91.

He’s ready.

And i believe he’s been praying for his third most magnificent day.

Dear Son

Ten left

Living like you were dying
Yesterday from a High School classmate’s Facebook feed.

 

In 2009, i began a 10-year journey to live as though June 8, 2019 (60th bday) is my last day.

i read about half of a long article yesterday. Here is my summary:

Rather than contemplating the stereotypical “What if you only had 6 months to live”, or the article’s reflection on a 9-month course with the same question, but with 3 extra months, i began over 7 years ago living as if i only had 10 years.

A complete and radical departure from “you have less than a year to live.”

Ten left.

What if you only had 10 years left?

A decade.

Everything i’ve done since 2009 has emanated from, “What if i only had until my 60th birthday to do everything in life i wanted to do?

The caveat being, none of us know if we’ll see tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, etc.

Now, with 2 years 8 months until the “dead” line, an enhanced sense of urgency is emerging.

There is potential ridicule and talk behind my back, to which i am working diligently to surrender to and designate a non-issue.

Meanwhile, my enjoyment of that which is in front of me this very moment (typing this for example) brings such great joy, and peace.
