Labor Day holiday


“In the practice of tolerance, one’s enemy is the best teacher”

—Dalai Lama


Fact: No situation is perfect

Fact: We can choose to focus on what is working—or what isn’t—about any given situation

Assertion: What we focus on, expands

What will you choose to focus on?


Things work out best for those who make the best of how things work out

—John Wooden


Not long ago as autumn approached I sat meditating at a river’s edge,spotted an eagle circling

Above towering green trees reflected in endless slowly-moving waters

She dove; missed her prey…she dove again, again missed

I found no reason to feel she fell prey to frustration

She kept circling, diving, circling

Flying home belly full

Thank you first responders, and persons in the military and law enforcement…and other protectors…and to our sisters and brothers who are/were incarcerated and turning their lives around…for your contributions to Second Chances
