Guess what day it is….we had one of these not too long ago. Remember its just a day. 

First Day


I hope everyone has had a good first day of 2015. If you have that’s awesome. If you haven’t then I hope for a better day tomorrow and the days ahead. A lot of people need a better year than 2014.

Blogging 2015


Hello followers! I am grateful to be able to blog with some great people who are just as passionate about creating, curating and sharing things that make their lives great.

I have people of all ages, races, nationalities, genders, religions and personalities following my blog which makes this experience great. I look forward to having meaningful dialogue and connections with you all in 2015. Being mindful of how different we all are means taking care to be respectful and kind.

My presence on Tumblr is one of expression and fun. I am an older blogger who wants to understand the world as it is. If you don’t mind hearing about the life of a guy who has lived a little then I welcome your friendship.

Here’s to some great blogging in the coming year. Be original, share yourself, let the world know who you are. We will all be better for it.
