The Iron Dream


This week, on the same day, we lost two amazing people but gained their immense legacies. They were some of the most influential women to walk the Earth's surface during their lifetime.

For one of them, we were encouraged to be strong like an iron fist. The other, encouraged to be strong with a smile while soaking up the sun.

Together, they urged us to flex our wings and reach for the stars.

  1. Jeremy, Margret Thatcher has been on the news all week over here, and I did not hear about Annette Funicello. Such a sad loss. Thank you for honoring these two impressive women.

  2. Karlene, thank you so much for commenting. Yes, they were truly remarkable people who made such a contribution. I hope you had a great weekend!

"Understanding Air France 447"

Looking into the eye's of the passenger profile photos of some of those on board after having read this book, I could never begin to understand what was going through their minds during their final thoughts and moments alive on aboard Air France flight 447.

Flight For Sanity

"While it’s tempting to play it safe, the more we’re willing to risk, the more alive we are. In the end, what we regret most are the chances we never took."

Grand Rapids, Michigan

With seconds to go, I was making a mad dash down the concourse.  Of course my gate had to be the last one at the end.  The chances of me making the next flight out after to the concrete jungle were growing very slim.  In the distance, I could hear a small boy ask his mom, "Why is that man running?"  Barely hearing anything over the sounds of rushing blood and adrenaline, I heard the mother explain that I was running to catch a plane.
As I ran, I flew into my subconscious and thought about the times where I wish I had ran towards something, risking everything valuable in life because of something I believe in, instead running of away from something due to fear of how bad it would impact my life.   Risks that were worth taking, that I never…
