Looking Back

End of the year is the time when everyone gets reflective. Makes notes about where to make changes and where to keep moving forward.

I looked back a bit further. Continue reading

Your Motive

I don’t know anything. I’m no master of philosophy. Not a college trained nutritionist. Not an experienced physical trainer. Not a journeyman musician. Most certainly not a successful author. Can’t be sure I’ve hit middle age yet. I’m barely qualified to give an opinion; it could be different tomorrow. People do better when they don’t follow my advice; best I can do is help them make up their own minds. So what are you doing here? Continue reading

Meeting Others

Sacrificing my comfort and biking a cold NYC night. Shiny new Kindle Fire in hand I attend a panel discussion featuring Denis Hamill, Ken Wishnia, and Shailly Agnihotri at the Bayside Community Library. Have no idea what I’ll hear. Excited.

Happy Sunday

Short post. Got family sitting around the table upstairs. Was lots of food. Dessert served now, music and conversation getting louder. Hopefully not too much food in me. Good times.

My wish is for all of you to find that passion that sets our world on fire. More so, the strength and courage to act on it everyday.

Happy Holidays,

Christopher
