A POSITIVE DECLINE or $1.90/DAY

The 25 year trend is one of the major positives in my own lifetime. More work to be done but #iamgrateful and #iamthankful for the work done so far.

YOU CANT STOP SPRING FROM COMING

Tuesday was a powerful step forward. Progress is never linear. It moves in progressive spirals but it always arcs forward. President Trump is part of how we move forward. Tuesday is part of it as well. But if we want to move the whole d@mn thing forward, not a political party but a populace and our people—we have to read and embrace more bleeding heartland.

#iamgrateful and #iamthankful for so much truth.And also to Julio R Dolorico who posted this quote today, that felt like it fit really well with unavoidable progress. Succinct and beautiful. Thanks Julio!“

You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.” – Pablo Neruda

MJ vs LBJ

On the eve of Game 5, the debate on MJ vs LBJ has quieted and we’re spending a little more time on KD vs LBJ, and how even LBJ vs MJ isn’t even a worthwhile discussion. I hated MJ when he played. And regret not embracing his awesome while he was alive so I could just appreciate. His retirement changed how I watched sports. I stopped rooting blindly for my own teams and started appreciating greatness. In all forms. Even moreso after Anaiya and then Jaan was born. Watching any and all sports has become much more positive as a result. And FWIW, if I’m going to obsess over anyone involved with sports, it’s going to be Zach Lowe (can someone get this guy to start writing about politics — if our political journalism was half as nuanced, informed, well researched and consistently shipped as his work, we’d be a smarter country.) But I do enjoy VSB. And this article from June 1st finally made it to the top of my Pocket list, and I read through it a few times (it’s not lengthy).

#iamgrateful and #iamthankful for for Damon Young from VerySmartBrothas.com … for articles like this. Just like we’ll be judging more and more businesses for how they get their business done, we’ll be judging our athletes for how they handled themselves as well. http://verysmartbrothas.com/lebron-james-may-or-may-not…/ … civic and social responsibility mean more now than they ever have before, but that’s partially because we lived through a time where they mattered … not too much at all.
