Back in Black…


I have been getting back to some of my basics. After the most challenging 7 months I have had in a while, I am just exhausted. All through this recovery I have done my best to stay positive even though I don’t believe it always works. But I tried to not drag everyone down. I am sure my wife has taken the brunt of my bullshit.  And for that I am both grateful and apologetic.

But lately I have been really paying attention to the one daily meditation that still brings me joy and sets me right back down on the planet. Giving. Oh did you think I was gonna say something else? I mean check the name of the blog….haha.

This week Darwin and I over-tipped the trash man. One day Theresa and I bought tickets to see Dolly Parton and we bought 2 extra tickets to gift in the future. When I was in LA I bought a painting for someone. Shh, it’s a surprise. And one day I went with my nieces, to the mall, and we had a crazy experience riding animal shaped go karts around the mall…Even my sister in-law played along. It was so silly I don’t think any of us will ever forget it.  Just imagine my big butt riding a stuffed animal shaped Hippo around a busy mall concourse yelling and carrying on like it was NASCAR.

I may write some more….I may not. I would like to. But time is the thing I don’t have enough of these days. I just wanted to drop a note to say….keep going. Keep giving gifts. Keep sharing time with strangers as well as the people you love. It grows and spirals in ways you will never fully measure.
Take care.
