Happy, Whole-ly Father’s Day!

Conscious Fatherhood; regardless of the in-wordable effort, sacrifice, and exhaustion can be a most fertile garden in which a human can cultivate compassion, fearlessness, and Divine Motivational Energy. Conscious Daddies Everywhere: If we keep our heart open – even during those frustrating times when we just want to start throwing furniture out the windows – the pain, worry, and effort might just turn out to be our greatest next handholds and footholds toward Enlightenment. It takes, however, a LOT of everyday Sacred Sweat, Focus, and Surrender. Mostly surrender.

Furnace Creek 508

I was informed the night before the Road Race by the Race Organizer that my division “C” would not be eligible for an Overall Championship/Jersey. i’d be moved into the “B” division for the rest of the Championships (RR and Crit). must admit; it was a buzzkill fer sure since i was in first place with my two favorite events ahead of me. yet, podiums i’m not lacking in so it wasn’t that big of a deal.
