A LOOK
INSIDE MY HEAD

When I was only ten, I learned how to type on a manual typewriter. A-S-D-F...J-K-L-;...since then, I’ve written over 2,000 blogs and enjoy sharing my words with others. 

As a writer, you see the world around you as a story waiting to be told. Every experience acts as an actor for this beautiful story we’re fortunate enough to call “life.” I hope you appreciate my writing as much as I’ve had, living the story.

[quote]In the endless universe there is nothing new, nothing different. What may appear exceptional to the minute mind of man may be inevitable to the infinite Eye of God. This strange second in a life, that unusual event, those remarkable coincidences of environment, opportunity, and encounter… all may be reproduced.

In Anything

Writing
In the beginning... In the beginning, there was nothing. Before there was a beginning, there was nothing. There must have been nothing, because there is now something. Everything that is once was not. Before religions, before churches, mosques, temples, synagogues, and tabernacles...the Creator existed. The existence of the Creator has.

Threshold

Writing
The first time I bench pressed 315lb, I was content for about 30 seconds. Next, I set to conquer 365lb. Did it. 405 is next on the horizon. However, sometimes you have to go back and revisit past accomplishments to ensure you are still capable of attaining them, if not.

Awake

Writing
In the book The Innovator's Solution by Christensen Raynor, the author discusses the forces, theories, and solutions responsible for creating intelligent, yet disruptive, solutions for creating and maintaining business growth. In one of the early chapters, he caught me with a quote I found to be fairly relatable, stating we.

Execution

Writing
I recently finished the book Iron John: A Book About Men by Robert Bly. In this book, he concluded the proverbial 'wild man' seen in folklore, has been given way to societal execution and banishment through social expectations, religious persecution of manhood, and the fear/shirking of the sexual energy deep.

Tempered

Writing
After several months of it laying on my shelf, halfway completed, I finally finished the book Mob Rules: What the Legitimate Businessman Can Learn From The Mafia by Louis Ferrante. Incredible book. One of the final chapters covered the topic of living by virtue, integrity, and with values. Coming from.

Roots

Writing
When we think of cherished memories and events in our lives, it's often from a retrospective outlook; remembering things in the past, or perhaps retelling them to others in a story-like manner. It's this story mode of retelling our history, paired with the ripening of time and age, that allows.

Cabinet

Writing
"After one utterly extraordinary rendition of “A Love Supreme,” Coltrane stepped off the stage, put down his saxophone, and said simply, “Nunc dimittis.” (These are the opening Latin words for the ancient prayer of Simeon, sung traditionally at evening prayer: “Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, for mine eyes have seen thy salvation.”).

Descended

Writing
There's still part of me that loves being a bachelor-esque guy. I admit it. This Saturday, I stayed in and watched an assortment of testosterone-inducing content, including: Death Race 2, UFC Best Fights of 2011, and Spartacus: Vengeance. I also threw back an entire pizza and avoided anything resembling work.
