Not Every Moment Is Retrievable

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

There comes a time in everyone’s life, and sometimes several times in life, when a moment passes which is simply not retrievable. I remember, when my father died, I was talking to him as I leaned over his hospital bed (although he couldn’t respond), and then I left him for the night. It’s not that I [...]

A Moment of Dancing to the Music of Time

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

I had a moment several nights ago. It was in my dreams. And it was extraordinarily vivid. Janet and I were there, roller skating, joined on some type of large sidewalk that almost looked like an enclosed ice skating rink as the people we knew and have interacted with pretty much during our entire adult [...]

Isabella’s Beach Story

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

Janet, Jared and Isabella took a quick trip with some friends to Sanibel for a few days of R & R over a recent three day weekend.  Isabella came back with some starfish and a story for me that was just simply so cute, I had to publish it.  I’ve always cherished each moment from [...]

Awakened from my Slumber

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

I saw my last article in Life In Business. I called it, An Open Letter to President Obama. What surprised me, however, was that I had published it October 31, 2010 . . . 2010? That was over 10 months ago. As I saw it on my blog, a blog I recently rechristened “Our Life in [...]

Significance usually produces success, at some level. . .and at some moment in time, and maybe even more; but not vice versa.  Success does not necessarily produce significance! It’s always been my great desire to produce both, even if not simultaneously.

If Ever I’d Thought. . .

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

If ever I’d thought that deluge would roar;      That blistering blizzard of sleet. . . If ever I’d thought those winds would blow;      Those ravaging waves complete!    Could I ever have thought I’d deliver us all;      With safe passage through that heat? What arrogance would I have shown;      As if it was [...]

est Away the Weight on Your Shoulders

Friday, August 27th, 2010

I remember, years ago, taking the est training. It was way back and certainly within the first decade of its infancy. I can remember any number of takeaways and many stay with me today. As a matter of fact, I can probably say that the primary life drivers for my perception of reality today came [...]

Avoiding Personal Cliches

Saturday, August 7th, 2010

It occurred to me that, at a certain point in one’s life, you go from crafting your own originality in your earlier younger years to being concerned about being trapped by that originality years later. It’s as if the early originality becomes your personal prison if you can’t break free of it later. The French cuffs and [...]

A Recollection of my Nonna by Jordan Pino

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

A Few Introductory Comments Jordan, just out of the 9th grade, is in a summer composition program at Lake Highland.  He was asked, as his opening assignment, to write an essay on a topic which affected him personally. He wrote it, and after it was finished, he asked me if I would read it. I [...]

Blog Follow-Ups

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

You know, for the longest time, I simply published to the blog.  I didn’t treat it as an interactive communciation.  And I didn’t even check what was written. Now that I continue to look at it…and interestingly, for every one comment I get directly on LifeInBusiness, I get anywhere from 25 to 50 private or personal messages. A [...]
