It occurred to me that one day I might be found… …face up …or down …or somewhere in between. So I thought it might be good …to shed a little light on the scene.   I carry 2 rocks in my right pocket. …always, without fail. A security blanket of sorts. Calming in a storm of hail.   Bringing a smile to my face. …with fond thoughts Of a time and place… …in Maine. So I thought I would share these words ...

I've posted this in the past -- first time in 2015. Always hits me somewhere deep inside.

SOLES

All you've got, all your brand has got, all any of us have are the memories and expectations and changes we've left with others.

It's so easy to get hung up on the itinerary, the features and the specs, but that's not real, it's actually pretty fuzzy stuff. The concrete impact of our lives and our work is the mark you make on other people. It might be a product you make or the way you look someone in the eye. It might be a powerful experience you have on a trip with your dad, or the way you keep a promise
.
The experiences you create are the moments that define you. We'll miss you when you're gone, because we will always remember the mark you made on us.

There's a sign on most squash courts encouraging players to wear only sneakers with non-marking soles. I'm not sure there's such a thing. If you're going to do anything worthy, you're going to leave a mark.

~Seth Godin

Ready. Set. Go. Make YOUR mark.

Joe was back at Hopkins this week and I stopped in to see how he was doing.  It was my first time seeing him since just before Christmas. When I initially arrived...his room seemed peaceful.  Angie (Joe's Mom) was curled up on the couch, doing her best to grab a few winks.  I felt bad for stirring her...but she indulged me (as always) and made me feel welcome. ...catching me up on the roller coaster ride on the home front. ...an...

We're doing our part to help some friends in need by contributing a family session to their medical fundraiser auction. 2 (out of 3) of their children were recently diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. If you've been thinking about a family session this year, here's a great way to get one and help someone at the same time. We hope you'll participate:

I can’t tell you how happy and appreciative I am these days. I’m getting older, sappier…and have my moments, where I can be the grumpy ole, cynical man… …but mostly, I’m truly happy.   With a new addition on the horizon, it’s hard for me to contain my excitement. There’s been a lot going on in our lives… …and it seems, at times, exponentially so for those that surround us. I think a LOT about LIFE. About time. About...

The room was hot. The local news was on. The rhythmic  sound of the oxygen tank filled in the background.   Still feeling the impacts of the stroke. Immobile on her right side. Understanding, …but unable to articulate. Frustrated.   I sat by her side. I held her hand. I gave her something to drink. I wished I could do more.   …for someone who always brought a smile. …and a twinkle in her eye. …an...

2015 has begun with the flu ....and nothing can prepare you for how gut wrenching it can be ...to see your child sick and struggling My biggest pain point ....is not being able to make things better. Allowing time to take its course... Making my best attempt at being patient ...and just being there. However Whenever Wherever ...I can be. Brighter days on the horizon.

Today I stopped by Kennedy Krieger Institute to see Joe.  Therapy was underway when I arrived.  I said Hi and drifted into the background, watching the occupational therapists work with Joe on squeezing his legs together. Hard work...and he did such a great job. I spent some time catching up with Angie -- getting a little insight into the ups, downs and in-betweens.  So many questions and unknowns. I couldn't stop thinking of ways t...
