Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

DREAMS by Langston Hughes


Nelson Mandella reminded us that there is no passion playing small - in settling for a life less than the one we are capable of living. But how does one determine what level of bigness is beneficially attainable, and how does one get there?

-: breathe :-

Perhaps we can find guidance in these hints of wisdom: a) let choices reflect hopes not fears; b) let actions stay one's blood from freezing; c) let behaviors reveal the brilliance of healthy intentions; and d) let dreams be bold.

We know there are different kinds of dreaming, not all of which are profitably equivalent in terms of viability and-or sustenance, and none of which spring magically real as a genie would have us believe.

There is dreaming - wasted - a drunken forgetfulness beneath gentle breezes. There is dreaming - invested - swift breathtaking flights up through valleys across tremulous skies. Yes, and there is dreaming, there, where moments fly!

We know, too, that life rides an inevitable curve of tilted bends. But how well do we know what bends that curve - the curve each of us must ride? Or is it inevitably bent? Riding it, in what manner does one's ride answer the vital question this episode poses: why am I alive?

Why are you living?

-: breathe :-

Dreaming took us to the moon. Now we (as a people) are ever so much closer to the edge of our universe's birth, poised with bated breath, full ready to visit what it may reveal. Dreaming took us into marvelous minds and through miracles of learning and unlearning, allowing us to discover who we really are.

These are but spigots of humanity's bold adventures, which reveal life's inevitable curves and expose the spread of human capacity. Hold fast to dreams.

We know adventure reveals.

We know humans who dare discover.

We know engagement evolves humanity.

Not many hearts, however, are set on plunging into southern seas. Not many minds are fixed on being buckled into seats swirling break-neck into deep space. Not many bodies are bent on searching secret caves for treasures that will blow our minds. What kinds of dreams, then, fuel bold adventure? In what kinds of persons do such spirits live? Is it in the willing? The able? The called? The fortunate? The Chosen? Could it be that all else short of bold moves is a settling into small? Don't let dreams die.

-: breathe :-

Actions tell our story. Behaviors reflect true beliefs. Choices challenge resolve. Decisions power abilities. Discoveries push us ever higher and ever closer to the cliff edges of what now! Dance.

All of the above are telltale markers of sampled bigness and settled smallness. They suggest an ever expanding spectrum of bigness. Now, is there anything bigger than changing the world?

We have had Einstein and Edison and Hawkins and Lovelace and Nightingale and King and Mandella and Turing and Rosa Parks and Ray Charles and - ah - an esteemed list of uncounted change-makers long enough to circle our globe many times over, whose actions impact our lives even now, but what about you? Yes, what about us? Are any of us on the verge of being listed on that vital roll answerable to the pivotal question: why are you alive? What does it mean to be alive? What is life? Why are you living?

-: breathe :-

Let's continue dancing. Might it be that such a list - the bigness list - is not recorded in ink nor engraved in any accountable manner visible to mortals? Might it be that a lively list peppered with countless fellow beings fully engaged performing differentiating chores which are this very moment reshaping our world in massively significant ways is a list we as a people have not learned to measure nor account for, and perhaps ought never to learn how lest observing it distracts us from lives worth living, and that the only meaningful question in that regard for each of us is this: am I on that list?

List or no list, let's say this very second you are on an adventure changing the world, your blood boiling hot in unmeasured intrigue, your intentions as pure as a ray of sunlight, answering the vital question, declaring with every breath, "this is why I am living," not caring one iota about such lists, or rather caring deeply having been awakened to the reality that that list is of lives living and dead - fully accounted - being bent and shaped by you in each moment of your being; that you matter; that you are the difference-maker!

Wow! Not sure about that? Consider this:

-: breathe :-

Is your mirror handy?

Take a fresh and sampled look here.



When we know better we are in an informed state to do better, for we have agency; the choice becomes ours. Choosing is one of life's gifts, a privillege of being, a pathway creator. It is an owned action in our dynamic world where all acts, without exception, and every condition no matter their state, have consequences known and unknown, intended and unintended, without deference or unjustified favor to its actor(s) and with total moral indifference to the state of that act's environment. Living is dynamic. Kindness is a choice. Kind-living is an enduring rally of bold actions. Living-kindness is a swirling ocean of adventures. In life we are often afforded choices. We may choose a different adventure, if any at all.

For epic, though, we need balance, focus, and rhythm, three pivotal actions that are exponentially transformative.

Let's focus on balance. To highlight it we've chosen to "exclaim" what it may require of a person if he or she were to elect to release authentic kindness into a spectrum of environments not amenable to it. Here goes!

It is to be strong, durable and bold enough to choose a life of kindness in environments where the prevailing pejorative for kindness is softie! It is to hold to kindness where kindness is preyed upon and plundered as if it is easy pickings from the strained efforts of naive and helpless fools! It is to be steadfast when kindness is being met with suspicion and ridicule as if it is a barter secretly after something worthy of stealth and trickery! It is to brave true kindness in communities loud in an applause intent on bolstering a kind of competitive philanthropy! It is to be kind and not let your joy be poisoned or your ego be fleshed into a compromise! Such a pursuit, indeed, is an adventure worthy foremost of the sturdy whose efforts are rooted in wellbeing, nurtured and nourished. Or else one is indeed a fool! To prevail, true balance is essential. Then again there are people who are just kind. No stress. No adventure. It is simply their way of being. Exotic.

What if such a person, such a spirit, such a mind, such a heart, such intentions are benefitted from a deep and valued appreciation of the laws of nature, how they function, and from an enlightened understanding of the physics of our universe, how it prospers life? Whether conscious of it or not! Might it be that then many more of us would more willingly engage such an epic adventure, or simply be, by finding that its spirit is within us, and that knowing this, eyes wide open, there is every reason to smile.

Let's take a reflective pause.





Epic is grand. Epic is adventurous. Epic is heroic. Epic is legendary. Epic is beautiful. "The purpose of life," Eleanor Rooseveldt pointed out, "is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for a newer and richer experience." That is progressive fullness, letting our cup run over. Adventures take us to the edge of our knowledge. If it scares us there, that is all the more reason to pursue further, Seth Godin advises us. At the edge of known is where new learning occurs. There is risk, of course, but "the most dangerous risk of all - the risk of spending your life not doing what you want, on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later." _ Randy Komisar. It is the risk of never learning more, not growing, being stuck and settled, conformed to values which are no longer productive for you nor supportive of your reason for being alive; it is to be a living dead. Going out into the world fully living the life we are born to live, destined to live, or at least determined to live is an adventure, the makings of an epic life! Hold fast to dreams. If perchance they've gone extinct, the fact that you are alive is the greatest hope that you can bring them back from extinction. Why let your dreams die!





Be In Love

Embrace AUTHENTIC Experiences.


"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment." _ Ralph Waldo Emmerson

There is who we think we need to be and there is who we really are. Knowing who we really are positions us ideally to progress to who we purpose ourself to be. You being the best you probably implies you've come to accept your freedom and perhaps in the manner described by Maya Angelou: "You are only free when you realize you belong no place - you belong every place - no place at all. The price is high. The reward is great."

But what if you have not yet figured that out or not yet accepted it in that way?

Be yourself. Fill yourself up. Overflow.


Don't Quit







I AM because YOU ARE

Welcome to SEASON EIGHT, 'An Epic Life' - Episode 2 - Adventurous Spirit - curated by Neville DeAngelou. In this episode we recognize and call to note that each of us has a reason for being, and that it is of the highest personal and communal value to know what that reason is and to strive to live up to the truest measures of it. We are recognizing, as well, that each time we change, the world is no longer the same. We are discovering that when we reach up to the best of who we are, fulfilling our reason(s) for being, our world is that much better, we expand; we arrive at the edge of a new frontier, a new decision point, the edge of our knowledge. That is an exciting place to be. It is a jumping off point. It takes guts. Discovering how the likes of these are continually working themselves out throughout the known universe is fascinating. This episode's mantra: Come Alive - the courage to stand alone; the wisom to stand together! You'll forget many things in life; you'll never forget kindness - true kindness!

Supreme Champions DO IT differently!

- you can too -


We are a peculiar people, you and I, intricately interwoven (internally, externally), marvelously made, unique, inventive, rich, exceptionally versatile, endowed with remarkable minds and an adventurous spirit.

What fulfillls your purpose for being, the reason you are alive? How do you maintain true connection with yourself? How often do you check in with yourself?

Knowing who you are and what you are about in any setting or stage of life will help you focus better, find balance, and attain rhythms that function in your favor. Challenges will exist, but you will be better able to attend to what matters as well as enjoy greater satisfaction doing so.

It is a truism that if you must harvest honey you will need to deal with its bees.


Where do you stand?



Step into the discomfort.




We are WIDE OPEN wholly responsible for making our world a better place.




Today's pivot QUESTION: you've been plucked, gracefully, from where you are and lifted into an amazing place you approve of, where everything weighing you down or that has troubled you or causes you to devalue yourself or delays you in anyway is promptly removed - miraculously - gone - you are completely new while remaining fully enriched (all of your valued experiences and learnings and wisdom are in tack); and in that altered state you are advised (inspirationally so) to picture your new life - a life worth living hence forward - experienced just as you'd prefer it to be recorded and left for all eternity, and you picture this life that is worth your living - hold that picture - for you are then brought gently to where you are right now, and here you are, fresh and totally new:

presuming you've come to grips with your reason for being, how are you working it out, and if you have not come to grips with your reason for being how will you figure it out?

True Happiness

Our actions reflect The Story we tell ourselves.

"Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny." _ Mohandas Gandhi


Heart Strong

Why not examine your life from a different angle?

As much as is affordable for matters that matter, afford yourself a 360 degree view. You may find this of great value in ways you had not imagined nor known to account for. It is highly probable you will also encounter awesome insights that are of no relevance to who you are or what you are about, and that you will make observations you are ill-equipped to comprehend. It is highly likely you will encounter delightful delusions, and disconcerting illusions, and lots of bs disguised as helpful secrets. It may very well not be incumbent upon you to contest or combat any of these, but they will inform you, and will assuredly put upon you the onus to be ever more discerning and to be ever smarter with your decisions and clearer with your intentions, for all in all these will profitably test your faith and mirror your trust, and render you that much better. As much as is affordable for matters that matter, afford yourself a 360 degree view.

Remember: it is YOUR LIFE; only you can live it. Regardless, you do not walk alone, and whether or not it is visible to us the sun is always shining. This sun by measure is ever willing, ever giving, fueling many desires. The courtship we (our planet earth) have with this super star affords our generations the richness of life we have been privileged. Our seasons. Our biodivierstiy. Our means of thriving. Gratitude. Gratitude. Gratitude. It is we {{on planet earth, tilted as it is}} who orbit the sun at measurable distances every 365.242 days, bathing our various parts as we roll through life-giving light. It is we (each of us that is) by communal designs and-or decree who variously occupy and-or traverse lit and unlit portions, timely or untimely, and by whatever means we resolve to do so or for whatever resaons we reside wherever we occupy. Whatever our personal or communal story, the story of earth's romance of the sun is solid. Ours is - well - shall I say, traumatic. Even if, by some illusion or delusion, earth's said romance proves counterfactual, we know this for sure: this is your life, ONLY YOU can live it. Come alive. Our world (our universe) is discoverable; we are discovering it. May we also, in the discovery and-or the unfolding of ourselves, find balance, rhythm, and focus in useful portions. May you flourish whether your ride is in sunlight, under moonlight, or beneath shelter, rain or cloud. And may the sun keep on shining until our ways are done.

Take Action

"Know what you own. Understand what you claim. Believe you can achieve what you conceive then call it by its name. Mine! The extent to which you have this clarity of mind, this purity of understanding, this strength of belief, you have the fire, the fuel, the impetus, the passion, the determination, the willpower you require to pursue and retrieve your truest desire. But do not claim what does not belong to you. It will not keep you . . . it will suffer you but for only so long."

You are valued. You are important. What you experience is important. Your intention matters. You are a whole being. You are a true wonder. You diminish yourself whenever you pit valued elements of who you are against vital elements of who you are: your intuitive self against your intellectual self, your rational self against your emotional self, your gut against your heart against your head. Don't be put at war against yourself: you are a masterpiece. An intricate being. Human!

Life: it is a dance. It gets better with practice; its music is in your heart and in your soul and in your blood and in your bones. Life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice. You have a partner – your spirit. You can have a party if you like, but choose smartly who you invite, for life – your life – is a dance. It gets better with practice, unless you stop the music or so crowd your dance floor there is no space to move or be moved within it. Explore. Yes, life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice until the dance becomes the dancer and the dancer becomes the dance and life and all of existence becomes a singular flow. Yes, life; it is a dance. It gets better with practice. Dance.

Be at Home with Yourself

Home is a special place. Love resides there. The best journeys take you there. Hope lives there. Home leaves no question about belonging. Friends belong there. Dreams thrive there. Home is a place of forgiveness. There is no rejection there. Home is a place of rest and recuperation and rejuvination. There is laughter there. Life takes you to unexpected places; love brings you home. At home you are free to flourish. It is where you birthed your wings. Sing your way home. We live amongst viruses and bacteria: some are villains and some are monsters. Monsters breed. Villains are everywhere; you are ever in their sights. Be prepared: find your rhythm, stay in balance, keep your values and your vision in focus. Choose your friends wisely. Choose folks who are good for your mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Allow your beauty to reflect the light you let in. Be all of you. Enjoy the fullness of your sacred space - Home. Replenish yourself.



Out beyond ideas of right doing and wrong doing there is a field. I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.

The Great Teller shares An Epic Truth

Across the nation and around the world there is a long rumble.

It is a rumble so loud it strikes ready ears as a distant clap of a fierce thunder. It is a rumble so low, it rides beneath the noise of a thousand human fears; it can no longer be heard. Fear of flight, fear of heights, fear of sand, fear of snow, fear of monsters in the closet, fear of bugs in the pillow, fear of cats, fear of bats, fear of strangers at the door, fear of being lost, fear of being laughed at, fear of being stuck in the toilet bowl, fear of whites, fear of blacks, fear of browns, blues and yellows, fear of nakedness, fear of the unknown, fear of being hurt.


2:26 AM - The Gathering

Smile. Live. Love. Laugh. Look. Listen. Learn. Be awesome. You are powerful beyond measure. You are not alone. You can do all things. I am you. You are me. We are one. Keep Sharing.

"Live Your Life - Live it well. You are worth it."

"I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality, and freedom for their spirits.
