"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies growth and our freedom."

I've seen the above attributed to a couple of different subjects, but the sentiment is just as good.


Performing feats of fitness (in fits) since 1998.


Zen swimming since 2011.

Things I've learned:
"If you are not here, you are nowhere."
"Help is everywhere."
"Do. Now."
"Pretend you are not afraid."
"Making long term happiness does not always feel good in the moment."

    I haven't gotten to know you very well but one thing I do like about you is that you seem determined and committed to health and weight loss and that's inspiring.

    Hi there! Not sure you saw my response on my post about the Community Goal page -

    I clicked on 'People I Follow' and right under that title I checked the box that says 'make default filter'. It seems to work.

    Good luck!

    Hoverin' by my suitcase
    Tryin' to find a warm place to spend the night
    A heavy rain a fallin'
    Seems I hear your voice callin'
    "It's all right"

    A rainy night in Georgia
    A rainy night in Georgia
    I believe it's rainin' all over the world

    Neon signs a flashin'
    Taxi cabs and busses passin' through the night
    The distant moanin' of a train
    Seems to play a sad refrain to the night

    A rainy night in Georgia
    A rainy night in Georgia
    I believe it's rainin' all over the world

    How many times I've wondered
    It still comes out the same
    No matter how you look at it, think of it
    You just got to do your own thing

    I find me a place in a box car
    So I take out my guitar to pass some time
    Late at night when it's hard to rest
    I hold your picture to my chest
    And I'm all right

    A rainy night in Georgia
    A rainy night in Georgia
    I believe it's rainin' all over the world
