wriiting this as cold virus ravages
nose sore from trying to unclog bronchial passages
lips dry for wisps of air to keep alive
futile hacking cough to rid congestion is on overdrive

balaji pointed out, seems like this time last year
i was in the same cold doldrums to clear
so i checked on “gumbo” entry logged
by golly, indeed oct14 2006 with same cold bogged

lo and behold, amazon shipment of 3 books arrived yesterday
purchased using finance forum gift code came just in time my way
to take my mind off from wallowing in phlegm, some wisdom to delight
first to read “keeping the faith” on suggested list, shed hopeful insight

should be able to breeze thru the other 2 books, selected off the list
“what got u here won’t get u there” stumbled via october’s “knowlede@emory” mist

as I checked it to amazon’s shopping cart
a correlated list of connected books suggested, how click-smart
clicked paperback “360 leader” which turned-out2be workbook, hmm – a mistake4asurrealreason dart

so instead of jazz gumbo to soak in this weekend
it’s leadership mumbo-jumbo this time of year to attend

what timely insight to behold
message from above this morn unfold
as pbc spawns in willow glen community bold
leadership transitioning to seed new foothold

at intersection, elders struggle to manage change
no different than corporations grappling future range
elders in service to the divine CEO – what is it all about?
look2letters from ray stedman and paul2timothy to establish ephesus church, to clear doubt
confronting squarely worldly artemis’ clout


2 guiding questions, first what do u read to base wise direction
a brian morgan takeaway gem – “the bible is a pdf” an unchangeable foundation
second, who to disciple, how to equip next generation
2 questions paralleling my own quest at mid-course intersection

as my journey unravels, what, who and how to reach
forum offsites echo team mates urging me to teach
time to gel rich input, d4D a program to spawn talent and self-introspection siege
unleash potential, instill confidence and enable growth, limitations to breach

the teaching ended with irish strain, still ringing in my brain
what blessing received, hurry to journalize, wisdom to ingrain

be Thou my Vision, o Lord of my heart;
naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tower:
raise Thou me heavenward, o Power of my power.

riches i heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.


i leave pbc ray stedman’s wisdom crumb to succumb
“life is a school, a training period where we are being prepared
for something that is incredibly great but is yet to come”

coincidentally, today’s spanish word of the day
indicating things seem to be lining up my way?

Spanish Word of the Day – sunday oct21,2007

carrera, noun
career; degree

La carrera has several meanings, and your professional career is just one of them.

hocus pocus


at the finance forum hollywood night
3 hocus pocus booths to sight
oh let’s have fun with starry, starry, light
paint my future blue and grey
forum’s about future outlook, so look out into sunny play

pray tell what lies ahead thrills
shadows on the hills
sketch the trees and the daffodils
catch the breeze and the winter chills


first stop, so what do those palms tell
stars on head line says imagination involving writing and music to give and sell
plus generic long healthy life to gel
love abounding and money matters are well


second stop, what do tarot cards have in store
see creative energy and working with children galore
generous giving from heart, gifts crafted with personal touch
earlier tarot reading at leadership forum predicted a trip, et voila I did such


third stop, what does horoscope blended with numerology in name and birthdate say
what question first and pick 3 other chips to add to cloth tray
answer revealed to work-related query, creativity and many ideas swirling
need to plan and organize with a partner to get to next clearing


well, hello, dolly
it’s so nice to have you back where you belong
you’re lookin swell, dolly…….i can tell, dolly
youre still glowin…youre still crowin…you’re still goin strong

i feel that room swayin……while the band’s playin
one of our old favourite songs from way back when
So….. take her wrap, fellas…….find her an empty lap, fellas
dolly will never go away again

ending on note with barbara streisand
as i flipped through photo albums this morning, memories transcend

journeys and connections made dear
what to do next became crystal clear


people who need people
are the luckiest people in the world

the forum in ancient times was a central area where commerce and justice administration took place
it’s about community and gathering, deals to handshake, societal rules to make, face-to-face
there was no speed, no email then, no internet, no cell phones, no skype, no facebook
go to the marketplace and neighbor, favor and savor, that’s all it took


shuttling from forum to forum of late, like pseudolus to intake and calculate
schemes and dreams, different playbook scripts depending whether leader, hr or finance to create
composing my version of cantos from scenes of dante’s divine comedy and sondheim’s musical score
where in future shall i rest my core without muscles sore and mind bore, my energy to roar and soar

the funny thing is the human in hr doesn’t need the blend of human i have to offer
seems like i am better off to lead and mind the company’s coffer

such is the paradox
when one is out-of-box

need for greeks, romans, diversity inclusion
trick is how to harness value for a good conclusion
people are assets, hard to draw out, easy to say
which pasture do u want to graze, pay and play?

to be, u have to become
a set of trade-offs to succumb

better still, be still
Wisdom in proverbs 3:6 to direct will
since common sense is uncommon
therefore Wisdom to summon

u reap what u sow, more than u sow, and later than u sow
the Helper holds the harvest, this much i know
listen deep, align and glow with the flow

“gno” gang in full force plus melanie, avis, doris, and taipan

ooh pure heart gets by with a little help from her friends
mm, i fly high with a little love from my family and friends

yes we need each other to care
we have some love to spare
could it be anybody to serve
i want somebody to love

when we walk through dementia storm
keep our chins up high
and don’t be afraid of the dark

at the end of the storm
is a golden sky
and the sweet silver song of a lark

walk on through the wind
walk on through silence and din

walk on through the brain rain
tho’ memories minced from circuits blown
today’s symbolic hope refrain
we’ll never walk alone
