Guest Post on Walking With Intention


Hi Folks,

Try as I may, I just didn’t have the energy to post yesterday. I apologize for missing a day, but it couldn’t be helped.

If you have a moment, please check out my guest post today on Sreejit Poole’s blog The Seeker’s Dungeon. You’ll find it at:

I want to thank Sreejit for the opportunity to share my thoughts on Walking With Intention with so many inspiring bloggers.

Just as Rarasaur did, I’m locking comments on this post so that all comments stay with the guest post over there.

Thank you folks for the encouragement and the community you offer every day! 🙂

Self Made or Not

Dog Tired

Bless the Children

While reading through, I discovered that the boy was chronologically fifteen years old, but emotionally and intellectually he was at the 12 month old level. Continue reading

I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to participate in:

But I’m game. This will be a lot of fun I think! Join the fun!

It starts on November 1st and runs for 30 days. 30 posts in 30 days (1 every day). It doesn’t matter if it’s 2 sentences, a 50 word poem or a 100 or 1000 word prose piece. Click the image above for more details.

Our Perception is Our Reality

I was shocked when a really good friend of mine actually said, “Your life sucks,” to me. This was the type of friend I would give my last hundred bucks to and go hungry for a few days if he needed it.

Perception is reality.

Lee Atwater

I’ll go one further and say, “Our perception is our reality. Each one as individual as fingerprints.” Continue reading
