Husband Of The Year Award

Good morning,

And, how are you today?  First, the sunrise this morning was unreal.  I love both sunsets and sunrises equally and today was purely magical – as is everyone I have been blessed to witness.

This particular sunrise was in Boca as I was picking up two passengers to take to the tri-rail.  From there, I picked up a gentleman who had flew in from Brazil this morning.  He was on his way to see his wife who is here on a student Visa.  He comes back and forth staying here for a couple of weeks at a time.   An engineer, he had a company that was very successful.   He sold that to a foreign investor for a nice profit and put those profits into real estate, but the economy in Brazil has tanked so over half of his buildings are vacant.

Between the cost of living between two countries, college costs and expenses for his wife, and his son-in-law who is also in college, he averages over $200,000 in those expenditures alone.   Having that in savings, he can do it, but it has been a struggle not having a return in investment to compensate.

They are on their third year ($600,00), and she has applied to Lynn University for her Master’s Degree.   They will find out soon.   His pressing need is to change his status in the US, because right now even though his business is in Brazil and not in the US, he is having to pay taxes.

But, he fully supports his wife’s education along with his son-in-law.  He continues going back and forth.  He continues to make the best of it.

Is that not what marriage is about?  

Supporting one another through it all and seeing the bigger picture of one another’s dreams.

Is that not what relationships are about? 

Giving and receiving, mutually respecting, honoring one another (and the collective conscious of the whole) and co-creating – whether on a personal and/or a professional level.

Is that not what life is about?

We are all in this together.

And, on that note​….​

How can I support you today?
How can you support me?  
How can we support one another?

….as one big happy family cohabitating on this
most beautiful plane of existence we collectively
call Earth as we mutually benefit from one another’s
existence.

Love | Life – And, the Rose that knows

Love turns
Love burns
Love yearns

But, so to, does life …..

In silence, I find my inner voiceIn darkness,I find my eternal lightIn light,I find myeternal darknessIn In me,I find my truth (1)

She walked into the room
with a but rose
and a dainty stare
and the only question
was if she was representing life
or was it death
as she held out her left hand

Life needs
Life feeds
Life bleeds
But, so to, does love…..

What is real without really knowing what is really real_ (1)

These Days….

These days…..

The sun does rise.

These days…..

The rain does fall.

These days…..

The sky is blue

These days…..

The water is too

These days…..

The world is ours

These days…..

What is wrong with These days…..has more to do with our own personal perception, because These days…..are not that much dissimilar from those golden days of yesterday when we romanticize and glamorize their brilliance while fantasize about tomorrow’s eternal glow when today is all we really know.

Most certainly These days…..are not without fault, but then again, there has or will not ever be a time when there is not this or that, because that is the contrast we call life.

Heaven, nirvana, utopia whatever it may be might not be so far off in the distance as it may seem, because These days…..we have the capability to tap into a mind that can transform the state of being.

Peace

These days…..there is corruption.

When was there ever not?

These days…..there is manipulation?

When was there ever not?

These days…..there is division?

When was there ever not?

These days…..people have lost their way?

Have not I, at one point or another?

These days…..the kids are self-absorbed?

Have not I, at one point or another?

These days…..adults act like children?

Have not I, at one point or another?

These days…..they have something really stupid?

Have not I, at one point or another?

What can I do to support you?

How can I 
support you,
today?

This one question I ask of everyone, whether it be professionally or personally.  The basis of this is that 1) it is not about me, 2) you never know what someone may need and, more often that not, people have a difficult time asking, and 3) we all are going through something whether it be professionally or personally where we could use some assistance.

That support may be in the form of having someone to listen to (without judgement, feedback, or even advice) but merely to be heard; that support might be in the form of needing a referral;  that support may be in needing someone that can be trusted (and inspiring rather than deflating) who can provide feedback on a new idea or a new venture;  that support may be in simply knowing someone is out there in the event that it may be needed in the future for reasons unbeknownst now.

So, with that in mind if there is anything I can do to support you, please feel free to let me know.

Let’s Play

No matter where in the world
No matter what  country
No matter what region
No matter how rich
No matter how poor

Children just want to play

This past weekend, I had a conversation with a gentleman who had traveled the world in the military and now working for the government.  We were talking about how similar we are, as human beings, and he gave the example of seeing children all over the world all wanting one thing  – to play.
