Hi 👋🏼 I’m Clay, thanks for stopping by. A little bit about me: I’m a training consultant and coach, as well as an indieblogger and podcaster. I love learning and thinking about things. I guess I’m a bit of a philosopher too. Read More

On repeat

I had such fun with yesterday’s list post, and I learned so more about my friend Cathy and her hopes, that I thought I’d do another. This time list the movies you watch over and over again and why. Here’s my list, in no particular order: It’s a Wonderful Life – i totally relate to…

I hope…

Write 10 lines, each starting with the words, I hope… I hope the Zombie Apocalypse starts soon; humanity needs saving. I hope tomorrow is a better day than today. I hope my knee gets better. I hope someday to see my name 10 feet high and luminous green. I hope the political arena on both…

Beware of geeks bearing gifts

I’ve been in all out geek mode since about 5AM. I watched a load of Youtube videos on code editors. I’m on a mission to increase my HTML 5 and CSS coding knowledge and skills. I know some basic HTML already, but not nearly enough to be dangerous. I wanted to know which code editor…

I could have wandered on

I’ve been threatening to publish another poetry chapbook for at least a year now. I have a completed manuscript, just haven’t gotten around to editing it. I think what has been holding me back, is that I want to do something different with it in terms of format and form. I played around with releasing…

Blogging is cool

Blogging is cool, isn’t it? I’ve enjoyed reading your blog posts each day, and getting a glimpse into your inner worlds and getting to see the world through your eyes. I’ve traveled to different parts of the world through your blogs and pictures. I’ve seen the past. Got glimpses of the future. And we’re just…

Ready to set the world on fire

I was born as the counterculture revolution of the 1960s was peaking. Although I was too young to be an active participant in the revolution, I was old enough to remember and be shaped by the ideas and principles people like my parents held. I can remember my mom and her friends smoking pot and…

Sometimes we get lost

1 Getting into the world of work in a career you want is a hard slog. We churn kids out of education as if it was still the days of the industrial revolution where they graduated and then went to take their place next to their parents in the factory. Now they step out into…

Closing In

https://youtu.be/FDfn870chU8 Rolling into week 2 of #BlogPals19. Happy Veterans to all those who have served and are serving. My family has a long tradition of serving. It was nice to pull this image together of the Lowe’s in uniform: Also, we’re closing in on the end of the year. I suspect a lot of folks…

Don’t let words of fear find a place in your heart

I have a lot of mixed emotions right now. It’s Remembrance Sunday in the UK. The Nation turns out “to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts.” At 11:00, the Nation goes quiet for 2 minutes. Tomorrow, in the States, it…

How do you want to play the game?

I’m sat here eating my toast with jam and butter and thinking about the nature of competition. What got me thinking about this was reading about old Zuck getting blasted again on Twitter. He was taking flak for doing something good. Facebook and Google have decided that they will take down any content that attempts…

Where do we go from here

I’m in the airport departure lounge in Zurich. I ended up here, not by desire, but by fate, bad luck, or just the pure randomness of the universe. The billboard in front of me asks: what do you want the world to look like? Maybe Fate has led me here to confront this question. I…

One Evening

Before I get into today’s post, let me just say, blogging saved my life tonight. I’d just finished eating a very foul tasting burger courtesy of the Urban Grill in the Madrid airport. I had time to kill so I figured I’d knock out day 4 of #BlogPals19. I unzipped my backpack and reached for…

A funny thing happened on the way to Madrid…

https://youtu.be/Jn4-hCk0b_A During my 30-day blogging challenge, I want to use a variety of mediums to story tell. Here’s a short video of my journey to Madrid yesterday. All the footage was shot on the GoPro Hero 7 and edited on an iPad Pro using the KineMaster app. Video editing on a tablet or phone has…

Why stand on a silent platform

1 Why stand on a silent platform? Zach de la Rocha yells out on Township Rebellion. And I agree. This is the greatest time in history to get your voice heard around the world in whatever medium suits your fancy. Do you want to write? Start a blog. Do you want to make films or…
