Thought For The Day

You can't change yesterday
but you can ruin today worrying about tomorrow.

Saw this on my run - never did figure out what there was to be cautious about.

Thought For The Day

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass.
It's about learning to dance in the rain.


Rumspringa refers to the Amish rite of passage which begins when an Amish child reaches 16 years of age, and continues until they decide whether or not they want to join or leave the Amish church.

"Devil's Playground" is a fascinating and disturbing documentary that follows several teens through their time of rumspringa. We watch as one young boy becomes addicted crystal meth and ends up becoming a dealer.

Amish teenagers search for answers and even as they party. Daily they struggled to decide what they believe and how they want to spend the rest of their lives.

Flower Fields

I toodled up the freeway and made a visit to the Carlsbad Flower Fields. I have been to see the flowers quite a few times. But, on past trips I pushed my face to the fence or hopped on the hood of my car to try and get a good view. This time I actually paid and went in and walked amidst the flowers.

Today was a gorgeous day. I was not the only one taking advantage of the weather to enjoy the view. To my surprise there was a half an hour wait to get tickets to see the flowers!

Foggy Day On The Slopes

Shortly after we arrived in the mountains, the fog started rolling in. Wow, did that make snowboarding a challenge. I was nailed twice by folks who didn't see me due to the reduced visibility. The second time was by a fellow boarder going full speed - I can't remember the last time I got knocked on my back and heard all the air escaping as it got knocked out of my lungs.

Today, I was very thankful to be wearing a helmut!!

I Wanna Be

by Cambria Detken

Stop trying to conform me
Stop trying to make me change
Don't tell me that you understand how I feel
Don't try to make me like you
Like everybody else

Let me tell you what the truth is
Don't want to be anyone else
I will not change
into who you want me to be

I wanna be my own person
The person God made me to be
I wanna live my own life
The life that was planned for me

I love to be different
I love to be unique
Stand up for what I believe in

Stop trying to change me
I will not change into what you want me to be
I will stay who I am
because that is who I want to be

I wanna be my own person
The person god made me to be
I wanna live my own life
The life that was planned for me
