Happy Monday!

Mondays are not fun. That’s just the way it is. It picked the short straw. However, despite its lifelong misfortune and frustrating, unreversible reputation, there are always opportunities to find something good on this day.

This discovery just might include a random card filled with good wishes of positivity from a certain kind of wonderful mom.

The source of this discovery may come from famed actor Will Smith, who is relentlessly positive. He is relentlessly positive about inspiring perfect strangers (beyond Larry Appleton & Balki) and he is relentlessly determined about…

That’s why Will Smith is forever known as the fresh prince.

Music Will Never Fall out of Favor With Us

Music is one of the most powerful forces in the world. The right song, lyrics, and sound can inspire us in ways that are–forgive me in advance–impossible to describe. And this motivational dynamic can occur instantaneously from hearing a quick, short succession of notes or words. We recall fond memories, tough times and/or are reminded of a dream we’re in pursuit of via a full, intensely determined sprint.

Ok, enough sneaky wordplay.

Here’s an extended version of the orchestral theme song from the recently released ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ that, like the film, adds spectacular accents that elevate the song to something bigger and better from the song’s simple yet defining origin.

So who wants to skydive HALO Jump into Paris?

Making Space for New Stuff

What is the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) up to these days?

Whether 2001: A Space Odyssey, Apollo 13, Gravity, Interstellar, The Martian or the forthcoming First Man, Hollywood has piqued movie-going audiences into the vast realities and fantastical possibilities of space.

Sorry, a side note:

The older I get, the more I’m amused at the sheer simplicity of calling the ever-complex and unknown space “space.”

“What’s up there with the infinite stars, planets, moon, sun and all-around cosmic mystery?”

“Space.”

I digress. And so does NASA.

What highly-technical, mind-blowing innovations and life-altering journeys are being planned by NASA for this year and beyond?

Things…on a To-Do list.

I Am…

As a refresher, below is the “Where Am I?” riddle from yesterday’s blog post.

It’s no ordinary day, that’s for sure,
for when you arrive, there’s an airy lure
After a while, it can feel mundane, just another routine,
been there, done that: The same old scene
Our imagination springs to life, where else?
‘Wait, do I still have my belt?’
You’ve dreamt about it, thought about it, realize time is running fast,
oh, here and there would be a blast in this world so vast
My seat is comfortable, everyone around me focused and calm,
all before I sink into reality, yet my mind is stuck on Guam
The final clue is all that awaits, for it’s up to you to cope,
with that board staring back, winking at you with some entertaining hope… 

Where am I?

I am…

sitting at a gate waiting to board a flight to a destination all too familiar and regular. All the while I’m finding myself locked on the departures screen, day-dreaming about a new and exotic destination at the Hollywood Burbank Airport, which is most famously regarded as Bob Hope Airport.

And yes, there are flights from Bob Hope Airport to luxurious beach resorts in Guam.
