Hey… guess what time it is???
And let there be light!!!! —- “Blueberry Light!”
Sometimes the best things are those things simple. Simple food, simple company, simple achievements, simple times. Well today I’ve determined to keep things simple.
Some well seasoned wings and Sweet Potatoes on the grill will do.
Hmmmm… should I be worried about more than the virus? I just want to get some eggs and a few other things. I have money and will pay. But…. hmmm
Decided to grab a new set up yesterday evening. Rigged it this morning, walked out through my sliding glass door and across my patio. Down to the lakes edge and yep!! First cast with my new gear lands me this sweet gorgeousness of a bass. Needle nose pliers to get hooks out and released this baby to fight another day.
Yeah, it’s gonna be a great day!
Tough ride today… hard to get started but then it was a burst of energy. On my return had some face wind and was facing traffic with lights…. didn’t do so well on the return. But overall I pushed through and feel good about the work I put in today.
On my way to set the court on fire… They better be ready!!
The designated foot gear!
I have to tell you BOG is different when you have to use these… Sheesh.
Can we please have even sidewalks???
The Operating Room
The End Zone
The Therapy Room
The Tool Box
And the list goes on…
Got up, got ready, got it in, now we steady!!
Check this out… took about 15 min from a busy morning and between conference calls. How cool is this…
It was a long long long week. This is some welcomed medicine…
She seems to wanna take me to a place called “Dreams” so I can enjoy “Desires” on my way to “Destiny”… #liveyourlove #donuts #livingsonuts #sophia
Thank you BabyGirl… just remember that you are cut from the same cloth…. And it is surely and amazing cloth that finds its way to become better and better with time!!
So how cool is this??? Haven’t seen this in the US yet, but truth is, I rarely ever go through drive-thru’s ever!!!
Was in the Philippines working my butt to the bone and needed my favorite global beverage… “Starbucks“!!! Listen to my buddy Ritesh speak the native tongue and ensure that our orders were correct… hahaha…
When she comes over… Well uhm…
Picture is worth a million words!
My view this morning from my hotel room at Citadines Bay Hotel.
Guess what y’all…. WE READY!!
An amazing BDay gift to myself, hanging with my Dad in Detroit. Yes that’s right! We are bringing blissful vibes to the Motor City and absorbing the ambiance of a city mirroring the resurrection of a phoenix. Aaaaah yeah… what’s next? We shall see.
All kinds of feelings and emotions… y’all pray for me! Riding with BabyGirl back to University in her new car. She got her operators yesterday. 😳🤪😳🤪
So yeah… I’m super nervous and super protective.

At the moment when transitioning from the immersion and boiling of the day’s demands, to the more mundane sultry evenings end, rests an enjoyment of tranquility and gratitude for life. Join me….
As interesting as travel is, seeing new sites and meeting new people, the anticipation of returning home is alway enduring. Not much longer for my flight but if I have to wait, this is how it should be done.
All are tailored and customized for, and by our journey. Frozen in solid motion towards objectives not yet revealed yet willing recipients of both days and nights and the contents therein. We embrace decision and indecision. Some journeys made of chance and those of planning train our eyes on the variability of each movements reward. We chased joy and drama yet when delivered we settled for mundane, reach for different, and scream with passion consuming the surprise of the rare with exhilarating. To free ones mind from expectation is to readily secure a more satisfying moment. To raise the bar for expectation is to release the actions required to obtain the same.
So we set out to simply do, to be, to see, to experience and found all that our souls desired. its in moments like these…..
… that we realize that there is only possibility and all else are lies told to blind the blind to the truth of destinies rewards. But this time we were not to be denied because we surrendered no retreat. In this moment the world became small and obstacles were made minuscule. Journey became our stepping stone… yes, from journey to journey we leaped our way from 🇺🇸 to 🇨🇳 to 🇵🇭 to 🇨🇳 and back to 🇺🇸, leaving well purposed footprints from city to city and from province to province.
Its just the beginning y’all… This guy on my shoulder…
… isn’t representative of good or bad, but of a singular purpose to intently extract with authority each and every reward. We pray that we inspire others to… #getsome, #liveyourlove, #freeyoursoul, #seizeyourjourney, #tacklelife, #unchain, #live
Love you eternally and thanks @MauriceHayes86… Wedid that!!!
You have a direct impact between “Now and Then”…. Take ownership and personal responsibility of your tomorrow right now!!! #getsome #liveyourlove
Seriously this was exactly my mood today. I mean seriously!
So I have one question… CAPTION THIS:
Enjoyed an amazing meal with an amazing guy who also happens to be the owner…
Mr Akita, the owner of Akita Japanese Restaurant was such a joy to chat with during dinner. What a larger than life free spirit and wholesome soul. I want to thank Mr Akita for hanging out with us, for a great time, and a really tasty Japanese restaurant in Cebu City, Philippines. Please enjoy some of the pics from our visit.
You see I’m a rich man… rich on life. I’ve been through enough in life to carefully carve out a firm broad foundation yet haven’t lost my mind. I’ve been praised and cursed, loved and hated, and loved again. Things like betrayal, disappointment, being underestimated, unappreciated, underrated and exaggerated have all visited me. All have their place in my past yet have all emboldened and informed my future. I am a man of passion and decision. Clear and consideration is my focus on my desires. I am one who enjoys the taste of victory but only if fairly secured and only boasts on the inside.
In life I want more than just a taste…. I want a mouthful of sustenance and enduring victory… I want never ending portions of victory’s mana. I want to feel all of my days, moments, and memories. Seizing joy from moments good or bad and enjoying the flavor of true victory is my norm. Unlike some, I’m willing to fight for it and take with intelligent ferocity, peace of mind and prosperity. I am a simple man, but with complex ways and unlimited means and infinite determination.
Ok, that’s it for now… I’m going to sit back now at poolside on the 11 story rooftop of a very pleasant hotel near Manila Airport in the Philippines and enjoy this mango shake, live music, and amazingly refreshing breeze.
Take care for now until my next post.
I’m sure I didn’t dream of this.
I’m sure it wasn’t painted in calm of my dreams.
I’m sure this didn’t make it to any list, spoken, thought of, or written.
I’m sure that God’s hand’s painted this eternities ago just for me.
I’m sure His revealing it right now means something beyond my right now.
I’m sure that He is happy with me.
I’m sure this is the very first time I am thoroughly relaxing and rocking back and forth on hind legs of a small black plastic chair meant for the size of locals in slippers, white t-shirt, and underwear on the 18th floor of a 2 bedroom condo on the very tip of a peninsula on Mactan Islands facing an amazing and ever changing artistic view of changing tide and changing skies.
I’m sure that many, by watching this video will see this for the very first time and may never have this gracious opportunity to see it live and in the making.
I’m sure that the universe purposely opened its right eye, thankfully squinting to gaze at me, as I gased at it as much as I could, with its firefly pupil.
I’m sure I’ll have many more desires and firsts fulfilled and created memories and moments revealed.
I’m sure it’s what I live for.
I’m sure its what I love for…
I’m just sure of it!!!
Love and Let Love, Live and Let Live
