Polo Match & Hot Air Balloons

My wife spotted an announcement of an event near us called The Victory Cup. The event features polo, hot air balloons, food and spirits. Neither of us had ever seen a polo match or hot air balloons so we got our tickets, booked an Air B&B and headed to the Hill Country. It was a spectacular weekend and a perfect end to our Thanksgiving Break.

Work and Play

Heard this quote today for the first time and loved it, so passing it along to you …

The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.

Kodachrome (movie)

IMDB Link – Kodachrome

I recognize the risk of this being cliché in recommending this film on my site, but it was truly one I deemed worthy of passing along. I am not a film reviewer and so as not to risk any spoilers I don’t plan on going into any of the details of the movie.

I do however feel that many of my readers will find great metaphors and symbolism to the plot of the surface and deeper meanings in the interplay of the charachers. If you’re searching for something to watch, give it a shot and let me know what you think.

PSA – I didn’t unfriend you

Back in April 2018 I shared in a post titled Just Do It that I was pulling back on social media but not ready for a departure. Well I have now made the next plunge. With the exception of Twitter (and it’s under review) I have been slowly closing accounts (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc.)

The main subject of this site has never been used as a political platform and I don’t intend it be that now so I am not planning on going into the specifics of my decision, but we’ll just leave it with I have finally had enough of the manipulation and have chosen to make my exit.

The real reason for this post is for you out there who read this site and we’re following me on social media I wanted to let you know that I haven’t “un-friended” you. I still plan on keeping this site going (perhaps be able to give it more attention) and look forward to our conversations and sharing on this platform.
