unnamed

grandies j and b

get ready for the big race

their first 5k

as a family

following in the footsteps

of mom and dad

making me proud

all to raise money

and awareness

for the

hope water project

a human cause

that helps bring

clean water to africa

something so many of us

take for granted

each and every day.

checklist:

sweatbands

numbers

water

shorts

smiles

shoes

enthusiasm

hope

empathy

compassion

blanket

ready.

every cause produces more than one effect.

i realized

after leaving this note

just how strong

nacho the cat not the food’s

potato fetish

has become.

when it comes to the point

that i feel the need

 to disguise a raw potato

so that he does not sneak off with it

secreting it away

for his eating pleasure

things may have gotten out of hand

and

someone has a problem

but i’m not saying any names.

i see the whole world as a story.

thank you in advance

to all those who

i may cross paths with.

you could find yourself

smack in the middle

of my blog

one day

or seven.

family, friends,

random strangers, animals

and

those who cannot be categorized.

i am

endlessly fascinated by your stories

and

never judge you for them

but

instead

always learn something

from you

because of them.

wolverines, bulldogs, trash-talk, cowbells and popcorn.

on a beautiful night

at the university of michigan

home of the wolverines

and the women

of the winning softball team

went head to head

with the georgia bulldogs

worthy adversaries

in the second game

of the ncaa regionals

IMG_0689

and we were lucky enough

to have seats directly next to

the alumni marching band

loyal, spirited, musical, happy

as they

jumped up

cheered

played

and

very

enthusiastically

trash-talked

the rivals

and

called the plays

 as everyone got in on the act

and

desmond howard

and sons

sat in

on cowbell

IMG_0691

and in the end

the wolverines

were victorious

earning a spot

in the college world series

and

all the trash talking

 music

 hard work

 sweat

and

talent

paid off.

people are going to talk no matter what you do,

so you might as well give them something to talk about.
