When I started this blog some 3-4 years ago, I did it because I had an urge to write – although I didn’t quite know about exactly what. Initially I just wrote from my heart and posted, quickly looking to see if it got any hits at all. If someone was reading. Curiously hiding behind the screen.

I got a push to make it public within a week of start by a coach friend of mine. So I did. (more…)

Hm… this video makes me listen and appreciate – quietly.

Made me think of the chosen quote by Catrine Näsmark to her portrait of Blues Brothers:

”We are on a mission from God.” Blues Brothers

What is your unique talent? Are you taking good care of it? Are you sharing it with the world – near and/or far, small or large?

Please do. Let us enjoy.

The Day You Will Dance, Sing, Shout. May 8, 2010

The other day I came back from an errand. I am about to round the corner to turn to my street and realize that there is a new(ish) Irish bakery right there. My reaction was – this is funny, I recently left a full time job with an Irish company since 8 years, and now I have an Irish new connection right by my house, and it feels comforting. Coming home doing some unrelated research I stumble on a poem calling attention to the Parkinson’s Awareness Month at Guy Kawasaki’s alltop.com. Were you aware?

Parkinson’s Awareness Month, Day 21: The Poetic Truth About PD

The Poetic Truth About PD

*****

Parkinson’s disease is a pain in the kazoo,

The neck, the rear and everywhere in between.

Why, I’d even say it’s downright obnoxious at times

From what I’ve heard, what I’ve experienced and seen.

***

It steals your smile and attacks your joy

causes you to fall, it can even make you drool.

Tries as hard as it may, throwing obstacles in the way,

Often leaving you to look like a fool.

***

Your muscles begin to weaken,

your voice may start to go

things seem to worsen day to day –

all the possibilities, you just don’t want to know.

***

Your shuffle turns to freezing

and doing things get much more tough.

Still – don’t give up and don’t you dare give in

Instead, determine to fight harder against all that stuff.

***

On days when the sky seems cloudy and gray

And you want to quit, throw in the towel and check out,

Have faith there’s a day when a cure will be found,

The day you will dance, you will sing, you will shout.

Alltop.com is a great resource in many fields, for more on Parkinson’s click here. Finding a cure for Parkinson’s is one of the treatments that “my” Irish company Elan Pharmaceuticals is focusing on in the efforts to define the future of neurological therapies. They are not alone. You are not alone. Have faith.

Have faith in the day you will dance, sing and shout.
