Wounded Warrior Project

On September, 29, 2012, I am running a Tough Mudder (toughmudder.com) to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project.

What does this have to do with the NWTA or MKP? Well, this is about stepping into the "unknown" which is often my work in my MKP igroup. My work is to reach outside myself and reach inside myself; looking at how I show up in the world, just like I did in October 1999 when I did my NWTA weekend.

In Mar 2012, I shaved my head to raise money for children's cancer research and, in Sep 2011, I did a Heart Walk to raise money for heart-related research and outreach.

What are you doing to look at how you show up in the world?

Support me, while I support the men and women who need our support. Donate at https://www.facebook.com/events/242893309121783/ or https://www.raceit.com/fundraising/donate.aspx?event=8896&fundraiser=r2429615.

I'm out.

One Small Step For a Man

Very few men stand as large as this quiet icon of exploration. Farewell, on your next small step, Neil Armstrong (1930-2012). Let the dream continue.

Alive in the World

I listened to Jackson Brown when I was in high school. I haven't listened much since then. I guess his music brought back too much of the painful part of school; the bullying and the loneliness.

I stumbled across this song today and thought for a moment about Brown, his music, and my thoughts.I wondered about how much I wanted to be alive in the world back then. And that now that I am alive in the world, how sad it was to not be.

When I engage a man about the ManKind Project, I feel an aliveness that comes from knowing this is good work and I am making a difference in the world around me.

How are you making a difference? How are you alive in the world?

I'm out.
