Parenthood

Parenthood isn’t easy. Watching these three yesterday made me think of the responsibility we as parents have to our children. Not an easy task being someone’s parent, that is, when you are fully in. It takes a ton of sacrifice, patients, understanding…it’s never ending and yet simultaneously, it is possibly the most rewarding thing I have ever done and continue to do.

This doe is drained: nutritionally caring for these two fawns has taken its toll on her, but she will rebound. As I lay here on the couch this morning staring out of the glass then back at these pics I am reminded at how blessed I am to be the father of two. A tough job, absolutely, even tougher to do it right. And then you hope and pray they become good people. I am blessed that mine are indeed good people, kind people, caring individuals, a great feeling to have as I lay here on Fathers Day and understand I have indeed been blessed with becoming a dad. Happy Parents Day, Happy Fathers Day! Have a great day!

Disconnecting to Connect

Disconnecting to connect today. I do it often. I need to do it often! Too much anger and hatred happening in the world these days. I shut off the TV, very little personal social media, not watching the videos, not getting sucked into the vortex of negativity…I know what’s happening on the streets…I’m out there on the streets often…I see everything…I’m not ignoring what’s real…I know exactly what’s up… and the only way it’s going to change is if we stop the hate and respect each other…and we need to pray on it as well!

HUG SOMEBODY!

I am not going to post a new podcast this week. Instead I would like to share a show I did about a month ago that is certainly worth repeating. It was called ‘Hug Somebody!’

It is roughly seven minutes long, and the message is quite clear!

We need less hatred, anger, and violence and more, much more, peace, love, and understanding towards our fellow human beings.

Please feel free to share this message with those you love and care about!

It starts with us!

Thank you

Tony

Hug Somebody

Looking quiet up there..

So much happening today in the city. Rioting, looting, doesn’t appear to be getting better. Prayers to all.

In this podcast episode I take a ride into Philly and reminisce about the old days, and simultaneously hope to shake the mental funk of the quarantine that has me down.

66: Mindfulness Meditation My Way

66: Mindfulness Meditation My Way

Mindfulness Meditation is the act of bringing your thoughts into the present moment, being in the ‘now’ and quieting those racing thoughts we all have running through our minds.

I do my own type of Mindfulness Meditation by going out with my camera and focus on searching for then finding subjects to occupy my mind at that moment, on that specific subject. Join me as I take you on a walk where I relax my mind and focus on the now.

64: Ramble On!

Sometimes a ride to nowhere talking to no one in particular is exactly what you need. Come along for the ride as we talk about nothing, to no one, while heading nowhere!

63: Hug Somebody! (length 5 min)

Hugging someone expresses love beyond words for a lot of people. Hugging someone can mean someone is really happy to be in your presence, and it can mean goodbye as well.

But these days, if you are a hugger, you may be going through an emotional rough time with social distancing in effect.

Today we talk to ‘Blondie’, who simply loves people so much she loves to give a hug, if they don’t mind of course.

Unfortunately for Blondie and many others, these are times where social distancing is preventing most of us from hugs.
