Me Like Microphones….

  And me good with words too I did a fun exercise at the Ibar Ranch with the audience this week. I asked everyone, in chorus, to yell one-word or phrase related to something they’re grateful for. It was a fun activity and most people likely yelled “family”, “money”, “beer”, or “sex” or “live music”. […]

Running from Tony: Embracing Discomfort

Post Image

Growth through embracing discomfort… I’ve had a wonderful winter back in the Gunnison Valley after 3+ years in Hawaii.  My time in Hawaii gave me many unique opportunities to embrace discomfort.   As a professional I progressively advanced my fundraising and public speaking skills and reconnected with my youth in poverty through the most powerful mission I’ve […]

Thanks Mom! (Alternate Title: Don’t Read Into It Dad)

Poverty is powerful I’ve recently made a significant transition out of the largely non-profit/environmental track I had been on for most of 18 years.  Moving over to a organization (who paid to remain unnamed) with a focus on children was a big shift.  Granted I’ve been a foster parent twice (overall grade B-) and part […]

Red Noses & Blue Doors

I left Hawaii and one of the most powerful missions back in July. Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii serves over 15,000 youth each year on the islands of Oahu and Kauai and the kids are AMAZING.  Lifting up impoverished youth is at the core of the mission and inside the Clubhouses the kids find a safe […]

I’m going to be a misbehaving senior….citizen.

Someone took battery charger and cables out of my car recently. They perps hit multiple cars in the parking lot and someone said off-handedly: “Probably teenagers” From my experience that’s not always true.  Once, in St. Croix a “crackstafarian” (quick definitions: rastafarian = dreads + marijuana, crackstafarian = dreads + crack cocaine, not to be […]

I Stay Windward

Post Image

For some time I’ve been meaning to write a blog about my typical Saturday on the Windward Side of Oahu and struggled to find the right story for it….until this past weekend! I have the goal of trying to stay on the Windward and rural side of the island each weekend. Yet it’s hard as […]

All Terns Allowed! All Turns Aloud!

Why haters? Why hate terns or turns? Your lack of proper spelling doesn’t make your disdain for terns an acceptable belief system in this day and age. Yes, the City and County of Honolulu has posted signs throughout this once-great county opposing turns from Kaena to Kalihi.  It’s a sad, sad, sad state of affairs.  But […]

Evil Genius: Let There Be Noise

I do think this is a possible explanation…. Evil Genius: For years we have conspired to drive mankind (mostly man) crazy with our evil devices and inventions. Mad Scientist: (repositions hump) Yessss, master! Evil Genius: We have done well my apprentice but I want us to do more, more to annoy humanity! (evil laughter) Mad […]

Go Schmidty (Alternate: The Hot Dog of My Desire)

“Go Schmidty!” rang through the ears of the nearby attendees, literally ringing in their ears, possibly for hours, she had the gift of volume but not tone.  It was an off-key ear splitting screech….think Edith Bunker, at volume 11, through a megaphone and an airplane engine. “She” was my grandmother, Grummie as we called her.  […]

Flabdomen – It’s Singular

I’m going to correct a common misconception about the male figure. The anatomical term for the midsection of hominids is abdomen, which is obviously singular. Those of lower IQ will point to the term “men” in the word abdomen and say it’s the pluralated (or pluralized, pluraled) form of the word “man”, man but those […]
