Steadfast in Faith


In order to get rid of a tree you have to attack the roots. But remember,  the root ball is twice as wide as the crown. You can chop the tree down but unless you get rid of the roots and stump,  that tree will continue to grow. You can’t just dig up half the…

Weight loss journey and being sick update


I’ve been away for quite some time. But I need to get back to what I love…writing. So much has happened in the last year. I’m grateful for all of the experiences, big and small. This time last year the arthritis was so inflamed that I could hardly make it to work. The depression was…

“I’m not racist” videos


Alright! I’ve now seen the original and now this remix. Where do I start? I’ll just leave it this… I see both sides of the table even though I only live on one. The white man had a lot valid points about the things that black people do. The abolish the “n” word campaign has…

101 In 1001 Days : #32 Mitchell Park Domes


All these years, I never knew that the Mitchell Park Domes were free on Mondays to Milwaukee County residents. This will encourage those that like free things to get up and out the house early because it’s only free from 9am until noon. The other thing a realized is that it’s not as big a…

101 In 1001 Days: # 21 Miller Brewery Tour


When I talk to native Milwaukeans, they find it hard to believe that I have lived in Milwaukee for the majority of the last 30 years of my life and I hadn’t taken a tour of one of the largest employers in the area. Growing up in Milwaukee, Miller Brewery was a big staple in…

As I previously announced, I was selected to be an ambassador for this years Milwaukee Marathon  (previously known as the Milwauke Running Festival). What does that mean?  Of course a huge past of this ripple week encompass me plugging the race…

Site Changes


A while back I posted about creating a central theme for my blog.  Well,  it dawned on me last night that I already have a central theme. When I started this seven years ago,  the whole purpose was to get my thoughts out and stop bottling so much inside. In other words,  this was created…

101 In 1001 Days


A while back,  while learning more or bullet journaling, I discovered a few people on Instagram (can’t remember who it was) made a list of 101 things to do in 1001 days. I thought “oh,  that sounds cool. Why don’t I do that? ” Is always something going on or a restaurant that I want…

Music is my therapy 


Alright…when I moved to Columbus, Ohio in 2009 I went through one of the worst depressions of my life. The bad part about it was that I didn’t know or didn’t realize that I was in a depression. And after months of complaining my mother tried to get me to seek help but I was…

Lights, Camera, Action


This piece reminds my of a piece I wrote titled No Signs of You in my book From Within. I always had a vision for a video behind that piece but never produced it. It would be cool if I could get a few actors, and a video crew together to pull this off. I…

Couch to Half Marathon 


Last week a few friends and I got together at The Wicked Hop. Most of us haven’t seen each other in a while. This is supposed to be just a moment for us to catch up and have a nice lunch. The conversation was good and the drink with flowing. We had a really good…
