Yep, I’m an Extroverted Introvert

For years, I’ve bragged about turning a social disability of talking too much into a lucrative career as a professional speaker. My loquaciousness (that’s “blabbing” for you non-talkers) works well for my job but can be a challenge for my wife who has spent the last thirty-one years becoming a professional listener. Thankfully, she rarely […]

It’s Good to Retreat

I remember a colleague once saying that he no longer went on “retreats” but preferred to go on “advances.” I like that. A retreat should always lead to an advance. And recently, I experienced a retreat that might very well advance me into a good place in the future. It all started with a casual […]

What Do You See?

I made an interesting discovery the other day. It turns out that I have a fairly noticeable birthmark on the back of my head, and I only just discovered it…at 57 years of age. Geez. Last week, I was trimming the ever-decreasing band of hair around my head. Oh, and yes, I do my own […]

The Season for The Reason…Wait, What?

Shortly after Memorial Day, the Christmas decorations went up. OK, I’m exaggerating. But sometimes it feels that way, doesn’t it? I wonder if one day, we’ll just leave the decorations up all year. In my Christian faith, I often hear people remind us to remember the “reason for the season.” In other words, instead of […]

Be Thankful Even If You Don’t Feel Like It

I used to write a humor column for the Herndon Observer newspaper. The following was a column that appeared before Thanksgiving several years ago. It also appears in my latest book, If Not Now, When. I hope you enjoy this lighter approach to being thankful! My wife says I’m sometimes grumpy. My nephews say I’m […]

It’s Not Just What We Do But How We Do It

My family went out to dinner one night and the service was really slow. After a long wait, our server brought the burgers and fries but did not bring any ketchup. When we asked for some ketchup, the server said she would bring it right out. Ten minutes later we still didn’t have any ketchup. […]
