This episode is a bit of an experiment. I was out of town when the podcast was scheduled to air, so I pre-recorded it and scheduled it to post at the regular time. I’m very excited to see how that turns out. That means if I got really organized I could schedule lots of things out in advance. Hmm, how does one become organized to do such things? Maybe we’ll find out! Take a listen.

I would appreciate knowing what you think, be sure to leave your thoughts and comments!

This week has been crazy – too much caving in.  I’ve had some encouraging thoughts sent my way though. One was this song performed by Stephanie Wilson (who I still see in my mind as a 6 or 7 year old little girl…) and her friend Savana Seals. I think her parents video taped it and I grabbed the audio. I sure hope I don’t violate any laws doing that, but it’s done – so enjoy it.

I was also sent this little quotation from my friend Gail. It’s from the book The Desire of Ages about the life of Jesus.

When brought into trial, we are not to fret and complain. We should not rebel, or worry ourselves out of the hand of Christ. We are to humble the soul before God. The ways of the Lord are obscure to him who desires to see things in a light pleasing to himself. They appear dark and joyless to our human nature. But God’s ways are ways of mercy and the end is salvation.

Let me know what you thought about the song, I’ll try to pass the word along.. What do you do when you get overwhelmed by the waves of life?

For better or worse, I’m finding myself squeezing in another episode.  Maybe I should listen to this one again myself.  I talk about the things that you have to do right in front of you to reach the destinations that you want to reach “some day.”  You can’t complete a journey without launching out.  That first step is a requirement to getting there.  Check it out and let me know what you think.

Enjoy.

Here I am in my basement again for another episode.  This time I talk about the idea of trying to set out alone on a solo adventure.  How does that compare to working together with others, joining in community, banding together – give it a listen and chime in with your perspective.  Oh, by the way, I’m aware that I’m huffing and puffing … a windscreen of some sort needs to be my next acquisition.  Be forgiving and give a listen.

I look forward to adventuring along side you.

In this episode I try to loosen up a bit and start sharing some of the obstacles I’m confronting at the moment.  Even though the things I deal with seem to circle back around and wallop me again, it doesn’t make it any easier.  But I should be more prepared, shouldn’t I?

Let me know what you’re dealing with.  Do you have a strategy to succeed and overcome?  Or do you just let the waves of life wash over you and try to catch your breath when seas calm a bit…  I’d be interested in knowing.

Episode 3 is out! And you can get it through iTunes now. No, I don’t have a handy link button yet, but it’s comin’. Last time we talked about the environment of the water. This time we’re talking about the environment you bring with you wherever you go – your character, your skills, your knowledge, your force of personality. How do you accumulate those things?

This is my first “basement-cast” because, at 4:00 in the morning you don’t want to be waking anybody up. Yeah, that’s right, I dream of podcasting … and it keeps me up at night. OK, that’s a bit of a stretch. If you’ve listened to it, and read this post, the only thing left for you to do is to leave me a comment and tell me what you really think. Not later, now. Thanks bunches.

This episode goes a little mobile with a new recorder. I wander through the house and see what’s going on at the time of recording. Then I settle down and talk a bit about how the world at sea has fundamental differences from the land lubber world we are so used to.

So what did you think? Can you hear it clearly? Do I sound a little too sleepy (because I was)? Does this sound like it’s headed in directions that will interest you? Pass your thoughts along to me and share to encourage others to throw their thoughts into the ring.

Here it is!  The very first podcast episode!  It’s shorter that I planned, I guess I didn’t have as much to say as I thought I did…

This inaugural episode has some introductions, some welcomes, and a few audio artifacts that a windscreen could probably clear up.  I could’ve used those few imperfections as excuses to do yet another take (I think I did three in all).  But I decided against it.  I needed to get it out to you, warts and all.  Be gentile in your critiques and remember, I’ve got room to grow!  Take a listen:

Hey, why don’t you leave a comment and tell me what you thought?  What could I improve?  Is there something specific you’d like me to talk about?  What might that be?
