I have a journal I write in each day, just a socializing calender really where you basically write a line about what you did that day. I checked it this morning for some info, and found I stopped writing in it the day of my brother’s trial?? Life didn’t stop that day…we carried on and I have been socializing…but why did I stop writing?
Well I know I have continued to have adventures, but I think that day taught me that all too easy to forget phrase. "Today is the first day of the rest of your life". And I realized I have been holding my breath for a while…this penguin needs to start swimming sometime… I am not sure if I already blogged this, but I really like this issue of Mountain Wings.

progress? Well, at least he died!
One by one the thrilled employees got closer to the coffin, and
when they looked inside it, they suddenly became speechless.
They stood nearby the coffin, shocked and in silence, as if
someone had touched the deepest part of their soul. There was
a mirror inside the coffin; everyone who looked inside it could
see himself. There was also a sign next to the mirror that
said: There is only one person who is capable of setting
limits to your growth: IT IS YOU!!!!!
Your life does not change when your boss changes, when your
friends change, when your parents change, when your husband or
wife change, when your company change, when your church
