Aquas De Marco (Waters of March)

Posted on

It has been a long winter in  Washington, D.C. .  This is  a town  where we used to get just a couple of snowstorms a year  but now we got snow and messy weather (for this region) on a regular basis.  It definitely put a cramp in Jean Claude and Koko’s activities as they like to go in CCL’s backyard and explore.   The winter season  had a pretty dramatic impact on me as well.  There were disappointments , some sadness, some hurt but now I find myself feeling happy  again with knowledge that many blessings are coming with  the spring.

One of my favorite songs by Antonio Jobim – Aquas De Marco-  literally says it all


By the way this month, starts the fifth anniversary of “Cats and All That”  go to our Facebook  page and say hi.

Steve Jobs – A Dreamer, A Genius, An Inspiration

Posted on

I just spent an hour dealing with a dilemma with the cable company.  An hour, I could have been planting flowers, or talking to a  friend or working on a project to help others.  It was my choice, but sometimes one needs to make better choices than haggling over a broken  electronic device.   Take for example Steve Jobs – a genius who is gone from this planet much too soon.   He led us into the universe of personal laptops, Iphones, Ipads and possibilities.  Jobs was a dreamer who knew how to close the gap between visions seen and visions realized. He will be missed but never forgotten.  He changed the world.

How many of us have dreams we have yet to realize or fulfill?  Dreams – that put into action  may not change the entire world but  that could deeply impact our communities??

Maybe, for awhile at least ,  it’s just best to  tell the cable company , the missing contractor, the arrogant customer service representative  on the phone to STUFF IT!   We’ve all got more important things to do.  Perhaps it is wise we take Steve Jobs ” no excuses” mantra  and get started on realizing our dreams.
