Aunt embarrassment

Disney characters at Glacier National Park
GNP. Heaven’s Peak.

Ants are so much like human beings as to be an embarrassment. They form fungi, raise aphids as livestock, launch armies into war, use chemical sprays to alarm and confuse enemies, capture slaves, engage in child labor, exchange information ceaselessly. They do everything but watch television.

Being Brave

You know what’s overwhelming?

Lake McDonald Lodge lobby
Lake McDonald Lodge from last week. Heading back out in eight days.

 

Chapin listened to the first six Seth Godin’s podcasts, from Akimbo, the past two days.

Three each day.

i didn’t ask him to take notes and review them with me.

He initiated.

The power in teaching a message is exponential to just listening to the message.

It is cool to watch him learn as he teaches me what he learned.

Being a solo entrepreneur means you do literally everything.

It can be overwhelming.

Hold on.

It is overwhelming.

You know what else is overwhelming?

Wondering, but never knowing, if you could have architected a better quality of life.

You know, becoming the captain of your own ship.

Becoming an entrepreneur.

Epcot did not feel like a Disney Theme Park last night. It felt like my hometown.

Wonder if Walt Disney Ever…

Wonder if Walt Disney ever jogged?  Or ever went to the gym?  Or swam, walked or biked with any regularity?

I have never read anything that suggests Walt Disney was physically active.

This is one dimension where Walt Disney and jeff noel differ.

Yesterday, to celebrate turning 50, I ran the annual Watermelon 5k, in Winter Park.  There had to be close to 1,500 to 2,000 runners and walkers there.

The American Council of the Blind (ACB) had their annual convention in Orlando and its members participated! For the first time ever the ACB used a fun run/walk to raise funds and encourage their members to embrace an active and healthy lifestyle.

Embrace an active and healthy lifestyle? Hmm….That’s one of the common sense things that everyone can embrace.

Here’s to your health:

Carpe diem, jungle jeff 🙂
