posted by kjackson

Ninety-eight-year-old Keiko Fukuda of San Francisco recently received her 10th degree black belt. This means she’s been promoted to judo’s highest level…an honor only three other people have ever attained: all men, all living in Japan. I remember when I […]

Tomorrow is my birthday!  I have a lovely day planned.  I’ve cleared my calendar of all responsibilities, I’ve rented three movies, and I’m stocked up on junk food. I’ve told the kids I’d really like candy for this year’s gift, […]

Jane’s Life

posted by kjackson

Sometimes I’ll stop and realize that I’m not living my life. Instead, sometimes I waste my life. I waste it wishing for the next bit of life. I thought it would be interesting to write an extreme example of how […]

Like a Symphony
Sometimes I actually think :). I like to plan and compare and problem solve. Sometimes I think my way to an answer. Sometimes I make choices based solely on my gut whether the choice seems logical or not. I feel my way to an answer (I use ...
