Keeping It In Perspective...Podcast Information

I am going to talk about The Little Black Dot on my Podcast today. When I Grow up needs may attention so blogging becomes secondary. However sometimes seeing things in print help a lot. The story and thoughts today will be related to how big and wonderful life is when we don't focus on the Little Black Dot and let ourselves look at the whole piece of paper. I hope you like my voice and my stories!

In an inspirational blog post put up back in 2012 the black dot appeared in a story told by "Steven" on a website called Motivation.  In the story, a group needing to see a bigger future for their community was inspired by a simple black dot in the middle of a blank piece of paper.
During her presentation, the speaker took a large piece of white paper and made a small black dot at the center with a marking pen. Then she held the paper up before the group and asked them what they saw.

One person quickly replied, “I see a black dot.”

“Okay, what else do you see?”

Others joined in agreement: “A black dot.”

“Don’t you see anything besides the dot?” – she asked.

A resounding “No” came from the audience.

“What about the sheet of paper?” – asked the speaker. “I am sure you have all seen it”, she said, “But you have chosen to overlook it.”

“In life, we also tend to overlook and take for granted many wonderful things that we have or happen around us and focus our attention and energy on [the] small dot...."
Have a wonderful day!

New Podcast and Living in Isolation

I'm not quitting...not just yet. Probably never. So there you have it!

So this is what I have decided to do. I have to decided to start a podcast. It is called When I Grow Up! The name came to me because I do say...a lot..."when I grow up I want to be like you!" I have said this to elderly women golfers, talented artist and well educated people with talent and vision. 
In this world we live in today we need to take heart from those people that have lived this type of life forever. Housewives, retired couples and of course, those people that chose to buy a desert island. In some cases those choices were by choice but in others,

The podcast will feature things that happen to me personally, travel, books and always, always my thoughts on a variety of things. I will post a small blurb about each podcast here on my blog here with some insight that might help you decided to spend a little time with me. The podcast will generally be around 5-7 minutes, sometimes less. Not much time.

I have create three episodes so far. Most are very short...the one today went on for 10 minted but I think has some good information. It is about living in isolation...something i for one am very familiar with. Listen to my thoughts after you leave this blog post. Come back and leave a comment. I am interested in hearing from you.

In the mean time I am interested if you have any thoughts on what we should do to fill the days (and nights) as we learn to live within our own skin.

Have a wonderful day!
