I serve on the frontline because I heard something. I started podcasting in 2012 because I heard something. This morning I heard something. Get off the boat! Get off the boat! Tell yourself in the mirror. Tell yourself in the car. Get off the boat! Selfish isn't a good catch.

But Dad!

But Dad!

May 14, 2021I don’t know if I should travel to South Carolina to buy fireworks or step back six more feet. A huge milestone was conquered yesterday afternoon. After sixty plus weeks of wearing a diaper over our faceS the CDC reached that point in Covid 19 recovery where it’s OK to walk into a building without wearing that strip of cloth. But! But! You have to be fully vaccinated. I burst out in huge laughter. Because I know how many people I work with on the frontline who refuse to get the shot. They’re on the frontline and still feel like it’s a conspiracy. To pour even more fuel onto this fire is how fast the North Carolina Governor jumped in and said it wouldn’t be happening in his state. It’s like being a teenager all over again. You’ve got your first car. The freedom is all yours. Driving wherever and whenever you want. Then your parents say, “Be home by nine or those keys belong to me.” My father was sick with his strict walk and way. He only allowed us five minutes to talk on the phone. As teens with budding hearts of love how can you get anything done inside five minutes? His command taught how to lie. To make up excuses. To create fake news. Five minutes? What his discipline did during my teen years trained me to be more giving and compassionate toward today’s young adults. His dictatorship at 4172 Ryan opened my heart to give people the opportunity to succeed until the moment they disrespect the gift. The agreement. The collaboration. Equal love. Equal respect. Until the agreement is broken. I get it! Humans have this drive to not want to follow any rules. Many of us don’t like confrontation either. When things aren’t moving the way you intend it generates a ton of negative. Oh baby! Feel that fire! Whew! You’ve got some good negative! Sadly a lot of that negative is turning into bad decisions which leads to improper behavior. The CDC, President Joe Biden and science have cleared the way for the masks to taken off while in a building. The Governor of North Carolina doesn’t agree. Can I get his phone number? I just wanna call him up when the maskless masses grow in large numbers. Call him up to let him know that being a political father during the pandemic means we ain’t coming home at 9pm. He can try and take the car keys but the people know he may have words but he isn’t gonna be heard. I get it! How do you prove you are fully vaccinated? I get it! Only 37% have been fully vaccinated! At any given moment we could be the global hot spot. I get it. My Dad told my teenage self, “I can’t stop you from getting an STD. If you get it. It wasn’t because I didn’t tell you how to protect yourself. Make your own choices and please God in Heaven please locate the right decision.”

You have to shape the willingness and availability required to locate success. It has to be crafted. It will stay a forever distant dream unless you put in the time and effort to materialize the path. What remains silent is your side of the process. Not an accusation but the realization of developing the skills to be present in a new age of Now.

May 11, 2021The daily writing exercise is called Stream Thinking. Being present in all things right now. No judgement, no perfectionisms, raw writing by way of documenting all things right now. I was recently introduced to a new term: First World Covid Problems. A great example is how we feel that being back to normal is about removing the walls designed to protect clients and guests from the potential of there being a Covid crisis. Oh I’ve got CFWP! My local CVS pharmacy. Why do they feel it’s in our best interest that they steer clear of opening until 10am? I don’t go into the store. I get my meds from the pickup window. I have a first world Covid problem because of how my essential job has marched forward with back to normal hours 6am til 11pm. I don’t get it. We’re still being forced to walk in a pair of shoes that don’t fit. First World Covid Problems. You know what I’ve seen increase. The sale of lottery tickets. Never once has someone been upset about not winning. I get the usual shrugging of the shoulders with “Oh well. I guess not today.” I gambled this morning on CVS being open by 9. But I didn’t get upset. Nope. I’ve learned a lot from my lottery ticket friends. Especially those whose homes are on the street. Raise your hand if you think the money they collect on street is going into alcohol and drugs. Lottery tickets! A 50 cent investment has earned many $20 to $50. The scratch offs are paying out hundreds of dollars. While I’m complaining about CVS opening at 10, my friends from the street are cashing in. And when it doesn’t happen. It rolls right off their shoulders.
