Life Star – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

I’m so thankful to be working with the crew of Life Star at Hartford Hospital for their “Meet the Crew” program. I keep hearing such heartfelt stories from people who say they owe their lives to these folks and each time I’m with them I’m so impressed with their level of modesty, caring and professionalism.  I’ll continue to post images as the program moves forward and checkout the Life Star Facebook page to find out much more about this amazing crew.

Dear snow, You do know that it’s spring? Don’t you?

The Snow Man

As a child, nothing would beat waking up on a snowy winter’s day filled with the prospect of no school and sledding. Sorry snow bro, but that’s the best I can do at saying something positive about you right now so that we leave on good terms. Sure, I can go on and on about how much fun it is to shovel snow off a roof. I can describe the intense joy experienced when trying to steady a car that’s sliding towards a ten-car pileup but hey… I don’t want to get sidetracked here, I mean after-all, these gutters aren’t going to repair themselves. So listen, let’s put a little distance between us and take it day by ever-warming day. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder.  Well, I’m going to be so f*!king full of fondness when you make a late winter arrival next February. It will be like you never left. But let’s be clear on one thing though…you do have to leave now. Like, right now.

Do not despair of life. Think of the fox, prowling in a winter night to satisfy his hunger. His race survives. I do not believe any of them ever committed suicide. – Henry David Thoreau

What’s in store for 2015?

psychic medium I’m not into predictions but I would say… watch out for this guy.

Play With Fire

I saw something looking back at me in my wood stove the other night.

My first response was “wow, that’s pretty cool” but then my dog left the room and I started thinking about a fire extinguisher.

Something's Burning, baby
