Always CAN

Have been basking in the words and energy of Joe Schroeder. Awesome stuff. Stirring. Life changing. Challenging. In-Your-Face. Practical. Here’s an example. When Joe got tired of being down and out he took control of his life. Decided to bury the words “I Can’t” and live in the truth of “CAN DO”. So he made […]

New Snow

It snowed last night here in St Louis. White. Bright. Clear. Crisp. Went out early and just stood in it, enjoying the cleanness, the freshness. Sort of like the New Year.
