Isla had the opportunity to kick off the holiday season with the RMU Figure Skating Academy as they performed a Polar Express Medley 🚂🎄⛸for Light Up Night 2021 at the Rink at PPG place. She is most visible in part 1…. I was just out of view of her for part 2. Look for the little candy cane with a tutu with the long sleeves and legs. Such a talented crew!
I found this old thought in my drafts and thought now was a good time to let it see the light of publication. We (the human global collective) are well along in our Covid-19 Marathon. While some countries have made some progress in vaccinating their vulnerable population and others are reaching out to vaccinate their entire population, the world is just passing the 13.1 mark. Mentally some of us have had our struggles, some have found a way to pivot […]
It may have been one year late but the wait was completely worth it. Listening to all of the songs from GreenDay specifically American Idiot left me with a giant moment of reflection. I never saw mySelf a a liberal leaning leftist, but after Sept. 11 happened and we went on this polarizing stream of law, order, security and warfare I began to question. The motivation behind the industrial machine of war. Last nights concert brought back those memories of […]

One of the discussions on the water this weekend was about keeping our bodies in motion. My current challenges are likely a result of many years playing the sport I love and lifting the iron in the gym. My maintenance and strength routine has been pretty consistent since college. What can we do to get more people moving? This was a unique feature on CBS This Morning. What do you do to move each day? What inspires you to exercise? […]
Current count is three! Thanks to this long Canada Day and United States Independence Day we all should be thinking of spending our work week during this holiday from our favorite places. Why would you want to drive to and from when your COVID mobility still exists? Take this week to learn a new skill and spend time with those you love. This is for the up and coming executive. It is better than the corner office as it comes […]
This morning Phoebe, Crosby and Elle decided to go out in nature together to explore, move, smell, sniff and embrace the morning. They are today’s photo dump please enjoy and use their inspiration to move more. Healthy communities start with awesome parks, people saying hello in many languages. Be the light, be the change!

Friends and family– as we approach the unofficial start to summer holiday next week here in the United States, we begin to think summer sun, fun, baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and electric F-150’s. The holiday really is about the sacrifice previous generations made. . . in World Wars and on Black Wall Street. After visiting Ryan when he was living in Tulsa it was an eye opening experience to learn that almost 100 years ago in the United States […]
I know some people like to start their new roles on the right foot. Some dog’s may not let out their true colours until after they have found their comfort within a new pack. Looking back on that first week, struggling to get Phoebe’s leash on before she bolted. Those first few days sleeping on the couch downstairs so she could be in the same space at night with me. First it was the chair across the room from me, […]
Phoebe and Crosby wanted to practice gratitude for Mother Earth with a mindful walk through their favorite bark. Despite all the best efforts of the neighborhood dogs to kill the grass and everything else that blooms with excess nitrogen in our front lawn we are blooming. The rain of this week has only helped bring out the May blooms. Why does this really matter? It puts into perspective our human existence on this amazing planet. When we compare our time […]
What do you say to yourself each morning? Dear Evan Hansen today is going to be a good day? @iamicaniwillido? Give yourself room to bloom? Our Father Who Art in Heaven? I welcome any tools that come to me to add to my toolbelt? – Dear Evan Hansen, Christine D’Ercole, The Heart Revival, Luke 11:2, Me On this 19th Day of April 2021, I realize my journal check-ins have been irregular and very disjointed. I’ve been processing several different things […]
It’s Sunday morning and the pups have been out for their first walk. Ms. Crosby is good with just a half mile after breakfast followed my a nap during CBS Sunday morning. As a senior elkhound Crosby will still take to snowy trails for a mile or more, because the snow brings out her inner puppy. She’s trying to teach her adopted sister Phoebe to learn to slow down a little, but at 10 years YOUNGER than Crosby, Phoebe is […]
