Fond memories of seven trips in 2011


The work day begins early for many of us, usually between 5am and 6am here. When not traveling, I work remotely, meaning from home.

It was yesterday, January 24, 2013, 8:47am (yes, 100 days ago).

I was sitting at my desk… ding – you know the little sound our laptops make when a new email arrives.

It was the most horrible email ever.

And the world stopped turning.

What drives a person to take their own life?

An act of love? An act of hate? What?

Retired Disney Institute Keynote Speaker and Prolific Blogger. Five daily, differently-themed personal blogs (about life's 5 big choices) on five interconnected sites.


  1. I.m so sorry about Scott. My deepest condolences and prayers for his family and friends — there are no words that can comfort, only the everlasting arms of God.

  2. Thank you Natalie.

    The post was in real (raw) time. The main goal of these blogs is to leave a trail for Chapin in case something bad ever happens to me.

    A life guide so to speak. He may never read these posts. He may treasure them and re-read the ones he likes best.

    I write knowing it could go either way.
