Having just awaken from his cyber-world induced cyber-sleep after a 35yr trip inside, Josh climbed the stairs up to see what remained of his old life.

“Whoa… How long have I been down?”. David, rubbing the crystals of sleep from his eyes, was starting to come out of the confusion of reentry. He’d just spent what seemed like a week inside machine world. Or was it more? “No, it can’t be”. But it was. The screen flashed, “2054”. (280 characters)

The last thing I expected to see was my own advice hitting me in the eyes on my way to the lawyers. But on my way to the lawyers office to finalize the papers closing my business, all I could see was the collection of placards on the back wall. It’s time for me to “Fail Forward”.

“A Tale of Two Juniors”

September is Suicide Prevention Month
My entry this week is in honor of Suicide Prevention Month and all those help others and those who continue to make the choice to remain. It may seem to some the easiest choice in the world to keep living. But in the face of truly difficult times or great loss or traumatic experiences finding reasons to becomes almost excruciatingly painful. That’s where loved ones, family members and close friends come in. Be aware. Be empathetic. Be the bridge back to reality and hope that these people need to continue choosing life.
