  • Take a time out, maintain your focus

     As a true Kentuckian, I love basketball. And I love all aspects of the game – the three point shot, the slam dunk, rebounding, good defense, court positioning, and the beauty of a well-executed play. 

    But maybe the greatest move in basketball that turns around more games is the time-out. The time-out can halt the opponent’s momentum, give your team a chance to rest or calculate a way to score an easy bucket.

  • May you walk in beauty

    The sight of a vibrant red or green or blue (or the color of your choice) is a cue for me to notice something beautiful in my environment. When I see a stunning sunrise or sunset, I’m reminded to cherish beautiful experiences. When I encounter someone in need, I’m reminded to cherish within me an act of generosity. The Navajo blessing “May you walk in beauty” catches the essence of this spiritual practice. Beauty is both a path you travel and what surrounds you on the path. In the splendor of the creation, we see its outer forms.
