The Fountain of Youth

I'm a big believer of, not only the arts and sciences, but also helping to build a community with a cause - especially when it looks to our future, our young ones.

Kayla Wopschall, Ph.D, the daughter of my good friend, Karlene Petitt, is planting the seeds as she has set the foundation for the Children's Museum of Central Oregon in Bend.

As stated on Twitter:
"We are so excited to work with the Central Oregon community to open a Children's Museum. A place for our youngest citizens to imagine, explore and create."

And with this, to educate and to create a sense of self, identity, and to explore options of what interests them.  To imagine the unimaginable.   For this, they will come to explore different areas of interests, which will create a guiding path to career choices.

The CMCO is also to be there:

"as a resource for families of all types to grow and learn together."

With every adventure - comes a goal.  This goal will help open the package to plant those seeds.  It us up to us to help make this happen, because our future depends on it.  Visit CMCO's Kickstarter Page  to find out how you can help open the package to plant these seeds for this summer's camps and classes.  Investing in our youth will be an investment of not only our future, but an investment of a lifetime.

Another mention, is to Karlene's new children's book, which can now be ordered off of her blogsite:





The artwork of this book was designed by Kayla and all the proceeds from the purchase of this book will go to benefit the Children's Museum of Central Oregon.  This book is an "ABC Book" that promotes self-identity and career choices for children.

Thank you so much and have an awesome Monday!

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.

A 26 year old doctor from Ireland, an 11 year old student from the United Kingdom, 29 year old Brazi…

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."

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…

Second To The Right

Second To The Right by Zach Neuman
Genre: Fantasy Rating 5 Stars

To the other orphans, it was paradise.  To David, it was a prison.  Behind the dark walls and black bars where Latin might as well have been the official language, David knew that his fate was sealed with a seal that he knew he had to break and break quickly.  He was determined to see the sunlight that was being blocked by the walls of St. Augustine's.  Father Kenneth gave him the throttle for his plan to escape - to take off.
What lay outside of those walls he was trapped behind was an unforgiving world to which he would have to learn new skills in order to survive.  Skills which in his wildest dreams he never thought he would never have to learn, nor use.
What was most enjoyable about this book is the fact that the story about David's determination relates to many aspects of some of my personal life journeys.  Some of these journeys I have written about before, others, I will leave to your imagination as to what t…
