This could be amazing

The comedian is great.

Not sure about her show. Not compelled enough to check it out.

What led to watching the trailer was the marketing soundbites. They hooked me.

She seems comfortable in her skin.

This is a major battle each of us has to live with.

Here’s to you winning more battles than you lose.

The Facebook Messenger note had the seed of death

Disney Business books
Disney Business books fill some of my shelves.

When we are at our best, we are unafraid of death.

When are we at our best and when do feel this way?

Never?

Maybe.

A week ago, the Facebook note was sent to nine people in messenger…the first people that came to mind in sharing the news.

i was in that group.

The message said that a dear Disney Institute colleague was “very sick” in the hospital.

First glance made it sound bad but not terminal.

My take leaned to terminal.

So i reached out to someone in our group i thought knew the most.

i , unfortunately, was correct.

In a matter of days, the Disney Institute (from the early 2000’s) group has grown to 40+.

Most of us will see each other in two days at her funeral.

At some point, our daily efforts should slowly and steadily begin our preparation for our exit.

We’re in charge of this and it ain’t no secret.

Too busy, right?

There are 277 requests ahead of you

Granite Park Chalet request
The reservation system overload crash ate up two hours of the day yesterday.

There are 277 requests ahead of you.

This is music to my ears.

Last year it was 700.

Tenacity to keep refreshing the reservation request screen paid off as many hopeful people abandoned their futile efforts.

After 130 minutes of constant screen refreshing, paydirt.

Fingers crossed.

There is no part of our journey for wasting

protocol
Retired our old American Flag yesterday. Only afterwards did i learn the flag should have been folded properly. Additionally, it is customary to say the Pledge of Allegiance or the National Anthem.

There is no part of our journey for wasting

In our youth and even as an older adult in our immaturity, we will inevitably waste time on things that had little to zero value.

A few of these “time-wasted” experiences are helpful.

They help us see how consistently doing good and decent daily habits and rituals propel us forward.

As Bob Dylan said, “He who is not busy being born, is busy dying.”

We did not rush the American Flag burning yesterday. While it isn’t called for, i kept my right hand over my heart until there was nothing left. This was time well wasted.

Disney’s VIP elevator and a life lesson

Christopher Reeve
From my office bookshelf last night.

Disney’s VIP elevator and a life lesson.

For three mornings, i had the Presidential Suite (VIP) elevator door locked open as i awaited the Reeve party to exit their suite and walk across the foyer where i was stationed.

Will, then four, was the first to burst through the Roosevelt Suite’s double doors. Christopher was next, blowing into the mouthpiece tube that controlled his wheelchair.

Dana (Christopher’s wife) and Christopher’s two teenage children from his first marriage, along with the nurse followed towards me and the open elevator door.

The small VIP elevator is for Main Building Concierge Guests to access the swimming pool without having to travel through the main lobby in their coverups and bathing suites.

In this instance, we were using it to avoid being seen publically as we made our way to their private Mini-Bus for transport to the Disney Theme Parks.

Our goal is for no one to know they visited Walt Disney World – complete anonymity.

In the 30-seconds it took for the elevator doors to close at my command, i was struck how Christopher’s arms were strapped to the armrests for stability and how he couldn’t lift a single finger, even if he wanted to.

And just hours earlier as my alarm clock sounded, i threw the blankets off me, directed my feet to the floor, stood up and walked to the bathroom to wash my face and so on.

i couldn’t help but wonder what he would have paid to have that same privilege (luxury?).

Would he pay five-million dollars?

Or if necessary, ten-million?

Fifty-million?

And i get it for free.

Every day.

Priceless.

Blessings.
