Survived by….

Before writing in this post I stopped and read my uncles obituary on the Star Beacon website.  The write-up mentions his love of his children grand children, travel and fishing and then it says “survived by” one son and three daughters. Those words survived by always, sense a kid, seemed strange to me, but then on the same site next to the obituary I see a touching letter written from my cousin to her dad (she is one of the survived by that the obituary speaks of) and I think I kind of understand what those words mean.

Uncle Keith was always smiling, and joking and laughing. You could tell he enjoyed the company of his family and I really believe he missed his wife, my  aunt Jackie. He will be missed of course, but  more than missed he will be survived by his children and grand children. The survivors will be in my thoughts and prayers and I ask they also be in yours.




Coming September 28th at 9 o’clock est.  the Fox network will air the season premiere for the fifth season of The Fringe. The show is a wildly popular sci-fi show where a fringe team works feverishly solving cases the happen on the fringe of reason and reality, there is also the element of another universe. See The Fringe show adheres to the multiverse theory, the theory (very high level) points to the concept of many realities existing at the same time. In one reality I may work as a doctor or a lawyer or a bum(do bums work? They may be some of the hardest workers out there?). So this Friday watch The Fringe.

Peeling the Onion” is a book written by Wendy Orr, the book follows a teenagers journey to self discovery. There is one twist to the protagonists journey in the book “Peeling the Onion”. The protagonist is paralyzed in a terrible car accident. The young girl is forced to figure out what makes her who she is all over again. When you get the chance read this book.

The television show and this book got me to thinking of my favorite subject ever me… Well not my favorite but I do like me. I also often wonder who I am. No I am not going through puberty, or a mid life crisis I am just maybe taking this moment to look inward. I can see right away who I am how I feel, act and react, that was the easy part. Now comes the hard part do I like what I see?

Sometimes yes sometimes no.  Am I willing to change? I don’t know. Will I change? Time will tell. Do I have it in me to change? Yes!! and so do you!

The world we live in is ours. What we do, and don’t do make us who we are. If you are willing than you can.  if you. You will see the benefits.
