Who Is Best on the Beach?


Who Is Best on the Beach

Dr. Seuss is our guest lecturer today.  Please welcome him. 

(Applause, Applause)



Today, in my social media feed, I read five posts that were slamming to people who felt differently from the writer.  They didn’t like their voting, their choice of whom they liked or supported in the political arena.  These five posters proclaimed they were the “best on the beach” simply because they liked one political stance and all others were wrong. 

I might suggest, gently of course, that these ‘friends’ of mine attend a refresher course in Seussism. 

Note the last line.

“And no kind of Sneetch is the best on the beaches.”

It seems to me that this comes down to a matter of choice. 

You are free to choose!  Always and forever. 


This is what is
on my mind today.

Today Is the Maker of Tomorrow


Today Is the Maker of Tomorrow

When wisdom walks in, I give it the best seat in the house.  Such is the case for this quote. 



I can drum today because of hours of drumming in my youth, and listening to recordings of my heroes.  Mike Graham (a childhood friend-still friends) and I would slow down the recording as slowly as our record player would allow and listen intently to a particular drummer until we could mimic what he/she was doing.

I wonder if that quote is applicable to my health as well?  Probably so.  I had heart surgery 18-months ago because of too many bad choices in my years of living and eating prior to that surgery.

Moving forward, what do you and I want our lives to resemble?  The positive outcome starts today, no matter our age.


This is what is
on my mind today.

What I Look Like Doesn't Matter


What I Look Like Doesn’t Matter


Who cares what I look like!  That’s a statement, not a question.  I’m not in a contest based on looks.  I’m in this life to do something with the gifts and qualities I possess and continue developing.  I established a long time ago that I would never be Mr. America or win the Iron Man Challenge. 

This I know … I have worth and value.  I have some skills that seem to contribute to a few people within my sphere of influence, and that is enough for me. 

And I approve of myself.  I’ve written on that topic more than a few times, and I think it is hugely important. 

Self-value is way more important than looks and popularity.

Grab onto that one and you just may become something unique in this world.


This is what is
