In Memorial To An Astounding Friend

Getting notice that a close one has passed never goes easy on a person. Especially not when there's a 9 year old waiting inside to chow down on some cake for his birthday, and he has no idea why everyone is suddenly silently hiding-sad. The magnificent thing that we can know about those who have… Continue reading In Memorial To An Astounding Friend

Exquisite Archives

Isn't it quite exquisite how our brains work? One moment we could be thinking of nothing of great importance, while the next you're experiencing a mind-boggling question, about the great questions of life. Isn't it incredible how in one moment, we could live in a single memory we say we could never forget, then it… Continue reading Exquisite Archives

Maybe We’re Alone

“I hear nothing...” whispered the boy sitting on his bed. “Maybe we’re alone,” responded the babysitter, “and we can see what happened.” The two rise up to start out the front door. “Wait! Let me grab a flashlight. There should be one around here somewhere...” The boy searches the room until he grasps a small… Continue reading Maybe We’re Alone

A Simple Life So Conflicted

He was walking through the streets, admiring the simplicity of the world around him when he came across a scene so treacherous. Nothing could truly phase the man except unnecessary destruction of innocence. And yet here he was, walking, minding his own business, when he came across the incident. Fire was burning an exquisite pathway… Continue reading A Simple Life So Conflicted

A Chance

"My kids are anything but common" read the wristband. It sat on the jewelry box, collecting dust, because the kids didn't realize this. They didn't see that they were any different from anyone else their age. They were just ... a blip on radar. But a blip on radar is not just a statistic. A… Continue reading A Chance

Senior

Perhaps one of the saddest sights in life is not the view of a lost love or even the loss of yourself, but the actual finding of yourself. This, of course, is me referring 'To the End.' Not the end of your life, now don't be silly! I am talking about the end of school.… Continue reading Senior

Losing Memory

Imagine having a pill that could erase any memory of your choosing. Would you take it? Some may say yes, while others would say no, but why is this the case? As people grow and live their lives, they experience things they never wished to know or to see. So, they would say yes to… Continue reading Losing Memory

Pictures and People

I loved having late night conversations and getting so out of it. Going deep discussing life. Getting to a universe-span feeling inside, when it was so unbelievably surreal and incredible. Like who are we? Why are we here? What if headaches are just our mind thinking things too advanced, that could destroy another timeline?! Live… Continue reading Pictures and People

The Road Ahead

When there's a long road in front of you, sometimes it's good to look back ... reflect. ... just so you can see how far you've come. And see how much you've already achieved. One problem with people today is that they just keep going, without reflecting on what they've done. They continue on, missing… Continue reading The Road Ahead

What If…?

Our universe is afloat in space. Everything in the galaxy has mass, which gives it its gravitational force. So, how is it possible to have our planets levitating around the sun? What is causing the sun to remain where it is? The universe is a curious place, what would our world be like if our… Continue reading What If…?

This Is Life

This is real. This is life. It's magical, isn't it? We can remember to look at the world but sometimes we forget to see. We're always fast asleep in our own worlds and sometimes we miss what's right in front of us every day of our lives. I want to go to places I've never… Continue reading This Is Life

Lessons of a Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich

 

 

DENIS IAN

“Making that peanut butter and jelly sandwich was not going to be an opportunity for praise. It was expected of me. It was my first task of the day, and doing it right was important. It demonstrated my discipline … attention to detail … a reminder that I had done something well … no matter how small the task.”

I lied.

That’s not the real-deal quote. And I’ll tell you why in a bit.

Those are the words of a career Navy SEAL … and, no … he didn’t make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. He made his bed. And that’s no lie.

If you haven’t heard, he scribbled a run-away best-seller called “Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life … And Maybe the World”. It’s pithy and quick … such an easy swallow my teenage grandson ate it in one night. The book … not…

“Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong
And carry on
‘Cause I know I don’t belong
Here in heaven

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven?

I’ll find my way
Through night and day
‘Cause I know I just can’t stay
Here in heaven

Time can bring you down
Time can bend your knees
Time can break your heart
Have you begging please, begging please

Beyond the door
There’s peace I’m sure
And I know there’ll be no more
Tears in heaven
