The Orb(I Tell)

Ready? Click play below to see one version of an orb.

The scene above with the orb is from the science fiction pop-culture favorite ‘Ready Player One.’ Since this blog is spoiler-free (a warning is given when necessary), the precise context for the scene in the video clip won’t be explored. However, an orb–or a globe–is a fascinating thing because it’s close to being a circle. And a circle has endless possibilities. Well, one possibility.

(Cue the drummer).

With that, there really is something quite magical about an orb this time of year. Take, for example, a snow globe.

What story do you want to tell within your life’s orb(ital)?

Happy Veterans Day

Today is Veterans Day, and it’s not just important but necessary that we honor those who have served and are serving in our armed forces. The good news is we want to honor those who put their lives on the line for us here at home. The slightly awkward part is sometimes determining exactly what the best way to accomplish this recognition?

Is thanking a veteran enough? Most are humble, choosing to step aside from the spotlight of elaborate recognition. What do they prefer, particularly when it occurs serendipitously in a casual setting?

As part of his surprise visit to Saturday Night Live for an appearance on ‘Weekend Update,’ Lt. Com. Dan Crenshaw had a damn good idea.

Plus a few great laughs were had alongside SNL cast member Pete Davidson who righted a wrong from a week ago in classy–and entertaining–fashion.

Never Forget is right.

Happy Veterans Day. 

When Life Is Framed Correctly

Life is funny.

This is especially true when a comedian is involved.

However, there are the occasional wild moments in life that are completely unexpected that can forever change a particular experience of ours or the trajectory of a seemingly planned-out path. It can happen when we’re least expecting it. And that “it” can be practically anything.

Like an audition for the ages.

I’m guessing that camera assistant pulled off some pretty cool angles and zooms.

The Bright Sides of Japan

The stunning majesty of our planet knows no bounds yet we face myriad boundaries that prevent us from experiencing these, at times, indescribable wonders.

Having been fortunate to have parents (shout-out to my amazing parents!) who prioritized traveling the globe in order to venture to various cultures around this floating marble, I am keen to discover new places, people, and wildlife whenever possible.

Even if I’m restrained to my laptop on a random Tuesday.

What am I thinking right now? Can you read my mind?

Maybe it’s about the good old days or being an honest man? The restless heart? The Promised Land?
