Java Zen:Thinking Out Loud Sunday, 2017.11.19
Obstacles are necessary for success... victory comes only after many struggles
and countless defeats. Yet each struggle, each defeat, sharpens your skills and
strengths, your courage and your endurance, your ability and your confidence and
thus each obstacle is a comrade-in-arms forcing you to become better... or quit.
Each rebuff is an opportunity to move forward; turn away from them, avoid them,
and  you throw away your future.

What A Difference A Door Makes


I’ve wanted a new front door for 14 years. It was always on the plan…for next year. It closed. It locked…mostly. And there was always some other priority. Usually something cancer related. So it stayed. Today, that changed. Before…

And after (but still untrimmed and unpainted)…

For the first time ever, my front hall is filled with natural light in the evening. It makes it look and feel more like a home than it has in near 4 years. Maybe there is hope yet for this house of busted dreams.
