i have been pondering this series in my head for a while…
Asking a WHAT IF question and seeing what responses i get from others and possibly adding some thoughts of my own.
Inviting people to step into the possibility of something they perhaps don’t believe in or are maybe sitting on the fence about.

i love this picture of my buddy Rob [who died just over a week ago from cancer] and everything it expresses – carefree, full of life, plus the symbolism of running off into the distance is not lost on me.
But i miss him a lot and it’s only been just over a week. Only? Yeah, something like that. And i think words are my processor so this is really for me, but you’re welcome to eavesdrop, especially if you knew my buddy. View full article »
