One is missing, but only because he was taking the photo.


Email from college buddy yesterday. One of our Fraternity’s (Pennsylvania Tau chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon) founding fathers (of which 36 of us form a special bond) left our earthly world for the next stage in his life.

Jim Powell was a good, decent, and gentle man.

He was 58.

Cancer forever changed the destiny of his life.

None of us ever expect to have to fight cancer.

If cancer does knock on our door, how will we move forward?





On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

This website is about our spiritual health. To leave this site to read today’s post on jeff’s career health website, click here.
