Investments

 The most important investment you can make, means using your 
time.

Your creativity.

Your ears and eyes.

And most importantly...
your heart.



Investing in Someone.

 It will never be short in returns.

Little Things
 that turn typical into 

Out-of-the-Ordinary.

And while you're doing that...here's a

Smack into Monday

Monday. 
A day which appears out of no where~and  after a full weekend~
 seems a bit more mundane.
Not everyone welcomes it.

I am no exception. 


Except that today~ it's different.

I ran smack into Monday this morning.





Molly and I have decided to start running together again.
This morning was run morning.
6am and it's dark. 
And cold. 

Instead of head lamps we used the Sliver of a Moon.
And about a million stars to light our country road of running.

Our polar bear of a dog clumsily runs around us, banging into our legs as we try to find our pace.
It's clear. 
And beautiful.
And did I mention cold?

Shadows fall on the road.
It's hard to tell what is real- and what is just shadow.
For a  moment my heart skips as I think I see a moose crossing the road up ahead.
Then I realize it's the dark laying shadow of uncovered gravel.

There is no sound. 
Except for the crunch of our shoes on the hard packed snow- 
and our breathing as we try to keep up with our legs.
And I guess there is also the occasional comment from one of us on the 
beauty of this perfect morning.

(Did I mention there was about a billion stars overhead?)

Then...
on the way back towards home...
as we begin to slow down because Monday is just about to begin, 
(or is it because our legs feel a tad bit tired?)...
a Star falls straight down in front of me.
One of the trillion that are shining above us.

I swear it lands at my feet.

And it is then I realized I just ran 
smack into Monday.

And I don't even care.


~Have a wonderful day.
It is Monday, after all.~

Life Upside Down


When we turn the self-focused

ME
into
WE

We gain greater perspective of the big picture and what it's all about.

thought in quote



"I find it almost comical to the degree which people leave you alone when you're already there. Whether it's because you don't do what they think you should, or because they don't know what to say...you are lonelier then ever because of it. 
And so...you stand alone, and hope that the left alone part will turn you into someone stronger."
