Firewalks and Flying

Let’s be clear here: I did NOT go seeking an opportunity to walk barefoot across twelve feet of red hot coals. Just sayin’. But when Marnie offered, it was too enticing to pass up.  It was one of those moments I have in my life, when a suggestion is made, and I know it’s as …

Alone

I’m sitting up a wash just off the trail well past where most day hikers turn around. I can hear wind coming through the Pinyon pines up in the canyon, and the steady motor of a very light plane approaching.  It’s directly overhead now, not a Cessna. Wing tips are too square. It’s flying a …

Getting Serious

Why adventure? I know there was a time in my life when the decision came down: Play time is over now. It’s time to get real. Time to get serious. Actually, I know there have been many times that decision has been handed down, inside me. Now I am starting to wonder if it was …

Shave

Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic… I have a poster on my wall that was rescued from the recycle bin in the Park. It was a misprint. The words disappear halfway through the word pandemic, half letters opening onto a large open field of white space, inviting comment.  I’ve been using the space to collect …

Achieving Forgiveness

In 2005, I hit a very real wall. I had gradually become less and less able to try new things in my life, and as a result my life had contracted around me to the point that I was stuck, broke, dissatisfied and profoundly frustrated. One morning it all hit the fan and I sat …

The Art of Appreciative Conversations

Appreciative questioning and listening When I think of the concept of appreciative questioning/listening, an image comes to me of a group of us sitting around a campfire. The fire sits at the center of a circle which, when viewed from above, is organized into slices like a pizza. There are as many slices as there …

Principles For Our Human Adventure

Expand your ability to anticipate needs/challenges, opportunities and possibilities. Notice the relief as you exchange trying to be right for feeling comfortable in your own skin.

Types of Fun

You hear a lot of people these days spout the popular notion, “If it’s not fun, you shouldn’t be doing it!” or “Life is supposed to be fun!” Well, I would actually agree with these statements, with one caveat – that we get clear about the definition of “fun.” The dictionary gives us: Enjoyment, amusement, …

Re-enchantment

I have a vision of us humans as magical creatures covered with beautiful, powerful antennae. Because of the times we have come through, our antennae are kind of flattened. We’ve trained ourselves to keep them under cover because the world as it has been hurts them. I believe we are in the process of learning …
