Everyday Hero Spotlight – Introduction 

When I started this blog I didn’t really know what I wanted it to be.  Honestly, still don’t.  As time has gone on, I have taken note of a few ideas of topics I’d like to address and creative risks/experiments along the way I’d like to try.  One of those ideas is writing spotlight features about people that I see as heros. These will be everyday people that I know or I find along the way (there may be a politician or two that may appear, but, hey, they’re everyday peeps just like you and me).  In the end, the only thing these heros will have in common is that in some way  they’ve inspired me.   

And don’t think they’ll all inspire me in the same way…  oh, no!  That would be no fun.   I want to show you all how simply living your life and being you can inspire others.   Some of the heros you’ll meet a long the way will inspire my creativity, my humanity, my willingness to take chances, my ability to find positivity in even the most grueling situations, and overall they will inspire my love and passion for all the good things humans are able to accomplish.  (I may even prove to some of you that I really do love humans…even if it’s a small number of individuals).   

All I ask is that you check back to see who some of my heroes are…  you never know, you may even be surprised to find your name amongst the list!!!  

Friends – feel free to share my blog within others who may find interest in any of my ramblings….



Thank you for checking out my personal blog.  I’ve been debating on opening a personal blog for sometime now.  I’ve blogged before.  My first blog was in the early days of blogging.  I moved to Russia in 2006 to teach English.   During that time, I had a blog that I updated about all the crazy adventures I had there.  Well once I got back and life took over, I didn’t feel like I had a lot to write about.  My next blog experience started earlier this year when I joined a team of bloggers for the website Leaf of the Week.  My weekly blog there focuses on mainly reviews and updates about the local Colorado cannabis industry – a topic I’m very interested in for many reasons.  However, I feel there are so many other items I want to write about that it was important for me to open this site and blog.

First and foremost, this blog is for me.   While I will share my many different writings here, and will love any and all feedback, I’m creating and up keeping this blog for me first.   Writing has always been important to me and I’ve slacked off over the years.  I’m hopeful this blog will help me strengthen and expand both my creative and non-creative writing skills.

The topics and themes will range wildly.   Topics that I can guarantee will appear on here are politics, entertainment,  random life thoughts/revelations, and really anything that pops into my mind that needs expressed – and trust me, there is a lot that really should be let out into the world (some of it beautiful, some of it dark and ugly, all of it me) for my own good.

So without further ado, join me along the way as I figure out what this blog (and in essence my life) will be!  Don’t be shy either!   If you’ve got something to share, share it!   Again, thanks for stopping by!
