When my car’s odometer hit car 100,000 miles I pulled over and took note. Wow, I thought, where have I traveled these last six years?

When my 20-year-old son orchestrated his first trip to Japan I watched his flight soar overhead in awe and wonder. When did this child become a man?

Many moments in life are pause worthy. Some pauses are more meaningful than others. I’ve learned to pause whenever my instinct dictates. Even if just a brief nod, I’ll stop in midstream and observe. Life’s too short to miss a moment of beauty, to re-frame a notion or learn something new.
