Dove Awards & Orlando’s jeff noel

“How vane it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live”. — Henry David Thoreau

I feel fairly qualified to sit down to write five blogs each day. Turning 50 last week, overcoming addiction, triumphing over disability, and dealing with a host of other life-changing events, has prepared me to write and to inspire. Even if ultimately, I’m the only one inspired. 🙂

A man who has inspired me for nearly 20 years, is the one who shared the awesome Thoreau quote.

Lee Cockerell’s blog is an excellent place to go for inspiration and practical, common sense leadership advice. The quote above is from Thoreau. The timing is from Lee’s website it’s on his home page.

There is some special wisdom about doing small things with great love. The continuing story of “Dovey” is helping me understand this more clearly, as I watch in wonder as the miracle unfolds each day.

Last night’s and this morning’s very short video updates:

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

Orlando’s jeff noel Dove Award

Orlando’s jeff noel gets a Dove Award.

Not Christian Music’sDove Awards.

The dove award for rescuing a dove egg from a nest in his Orlando, Florida yard.

Last week, my son and I were doing some yard work, including the trimming of our cabbage palm trees, the Florida State tree.

I accidentally cut a palm frond containing a bird nest.

Using creativity, I came up with a workable and simple solution.

Make it a great day. If not today, when? Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
