Whatever motivates, affects change on a personal or corporate level.

Memories

I thought my wedding day was my fondest memory. Then came my first child. Others followed but then I was busy climbing the corporate ladder. Still, I remember consoling my younger son when his team lost big games. I remember how proud I was of my daughters when they both made the honour roll @ school.
I was proud of my son. He was injured by an IED while serving in Iraq. Yet his down time gave us time to talk & bond like nothing else in years. I taught him chess but he must be cheating because I can’t seem to win anymore!
My grandchildren are gifts from God. My heart beat a little faster when they would  visit mamaw & me. Joy fulfilled.
I now miss the love of my life. It’s not because she’s deceased, nor because we were always the perfect couple or never fought or argued. We did.
No, I miss her because I let her walk away all those years ago. And all those great memories I related a fore never happened.
Have you broken up with your lover? Don’t end up like me. Chase them to the end of the earth, lay aside everything in your world…Let them know that’s what your willing to pay, give up, leave behind for them…just to be by their side!
Don’t regret what you’ve missed out on later like I have. Make those memories happen. The future depends on you.

Robin Remembered

Robin Williams has died in art (a movie). Recently, he died in real life. More often than not, art imitates life. Was it vaguely prophetic or ironic in his case?

(PLEASE Note: I lean agnostic on nonscientific speculation. Your guess is as good as mine. This is just a mythological extrapolation of ideas borne out in one of Mr. Williams’ cinematic portrayals.)

What I wish were true
What I wish were true

In “WHAT DREAMS MAY COME” (1998), he left heaven to rescue his wife. His wife had plunged herself into hell. She was so distraught over the loss of her family that she committed suicide.
It was her mental state that sealed her fate. Upon death, Annie’s mind (soul) literally created a hellish world. A vicious cycle of gloom & doom – having been internal – became an external, altered reality.
How strange it is then, that a man, who lived to bring mirth to others, embraced death – only bringing misery for himself into whatever lies beyond.
How harrowing it might well be for such a dear man if, in fact, life imitates art.
If you can’t forgive yourself, if you can’t love yourself, then not even a God can or will change your mind. Thus, it grieves me that a great person should settle for so much less.
He attempted to win by losing his pain. Yet, as he so famously said in the aforementioned movie: “Sometimes when you win, you lose“.
A part of our hearts was lost with Robin Williams. He is loved & will be missed. If only he knew.
Don’t miss the opportunity to tell those whom you love that you do. Carpe Diem…Seize the moment! For it shan’t come again.

Marriage Equality

BS Marriage 01
Brothers should be allowed to marry their sisters. Religious edicts shouldn’t be the law of the land. Risks of genetic defects are “statistically insignificant”, “negligible”, & “more akin to chance” according to several recent studies. Those who insist on old taboos & the lies that perpetuate them have minds so full of prejudice that retain no space for reason.
Love doesn’t discriminate.
