Goal Setting For The New Year

Goal Setting Plan

From North of the Boulevard~

Do you make resolutions for the New Year?  I think it's a better idea for me to simply be mindful of changes that I need and want to make rather than saying "I resolve to..." The new year is a great time to do some self evaluation, some reflection and some goal planning. With that in mind, here's my plan for 2015.

"And so this is Christmas..."


 From North of the Boulevard~

"Peace on Earth, Joy to the World"

Those are phrases we hear so often around this time of year. What a wondrous time that would be if we truly had peace, if the world was indeed full of joy! We need not only to strive for an end of wars, but for an end to the hatred and bitterness that is so divisive.

We cannot begin to hope for peace on Earth if we can’t even find peace in our own hearts. We can’t expect the world to be joyous as long as we continue to wrap ourselves in veils of inequity.

Honoring our Veterans

Fortunately, he hasn't been injured in any of the accidents, but his car is a mess again. The first accident happened only a few months after he bought the car in 2010. It still had that new car smell at the time! The second one came in the spring of 2011. He’d been deer free since then, but last night, a huge one crashed into the side of his car.

Be An Ally

Pride Parade Charleston

Recently, Gloria and I, along with her husband, participated in the Charleston Pride Parade. This was a first for both of us, but it won't be the last. The concept of equality for everyone is one that we both feel strongly about. Marching in the pride parade was a very small gesture, but it is one that meant a lot to us. It was great being out there with open-minded, equality loving people.

Guns Everywhere



When, or perhaps more importantly how, did shootings become commonplace in America? The phrase, “the latest shooting” should cause each one of us to shudder. It cannot be accepted as normal.  There is nothing normal about gun violence. At what point do we as American citizens stand up, shout out loud and bring about true and sensible gun restrictions?
