This headshot was taken three days ago. Was in desperate need of a high-resolution photo.
To the past.
You are a great teacher, but only when we never let our past memories be bigger than our future dreams.

Christ crucified for the salvation of all humankind?
Windows open. Dawn is barely visible. Birds chirping up a storm. Spring is two days away and they know it. Spring fever.
Easter is 13 days away.
Fever for the passion – of the Christ!
This post goes public in 100 days (which is
now if you’re reading this).
Remember back 100 days ago how we felt with Spring in the air?

Maybe then we can look forward to it. Joyfully.

What do you do every day, to get and stay focused – in the moment to moment opportunities that today brings you?
You are preparing for this TODAY, right?
