All Lives Matter

June 16, 2020

I am sure that many people have been watching the news lately and that one of the highest impact topics has been about our, the United States’, history of racial practices (that’s such an insufficient word: practices). For many of my years, I have been aware of how non-white people have been poorly treated in […]

Proximacy is the new Intimacy

March 25, 2020

Proximacy is the new Intimacy. Our COVID-19 shutdown response is creating a desire to get closer to people simply because we can’t. A neighbor and good friend of ours called and asked if they could come over to stand outside and socialize from six feet away. Of course, we said yes and put our coats […]

Regrets

March 13, 2020

“Regrets, I’ve had a fewbut then, again, too few to mention” How many times and from how many people have you heard these regrets: I wish I hadn’t worked so much I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends I wish I had […]

Twenty Three Things to Think About

March 5, 2020

Twenty three things to think about at Impact. Stand in balance ready to swing on an even plane with power focused on the point of impact.  Keep a strong but controlled grip on your club and start the back swing with a smooth pull away.  Stop at the top of the back swing for just […]

I believe Marriage is…

April 16, 2019

“I believe marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman,” Mitt Romney said.

The ‘when able’ phrase can include Adoption, Foster Parenting, Surrogate Parenting and […]

Many people who drive have a preference for one of the lanes on a highway over the others. My experience has shown me that most of the folks who are driving in the slow lane are planning to get off the highway at one of the exits that are coming up pretty soon.  Although, some […]

The Magic of Communication

January 14, 2019

I get an idea about something to say. My mind translates that idea into words and I think about how or whether I am going to share this idea with anyone else. Usually, I start to formulate how I am going to express my idea to another and, if and when the right chance arises, […]

Jesus’ Younger Brother

November 14, 2018

What if Jesus had a younger brother? Would Jesus have had to baby sit him when Peter, or was it Joseph, and Mary went out to shop or for dinner? What kind of role model might Jesus have been and how would he influence this younger brother? Some one asked me, today, if I would […]

Life is an Asymptote

September 10, 2018

In Math, an asymptotic relationship or formula is defined as: a line that continuously approaches a given curve but does not meet it at any finite distance It’s sort of like a football penalty for half the distance to the goal: you get closer but you never get there. In my experience, Life is like […]

The Title of the book will be: “IT’s Lost Art of Software Engineering” and will contain much of what has been posted in my blog for the last few […]
