the perception of “GOODNESS”

Ever wonder why when “goodness” is mentioned we think of ones’ character? Me too. There are so many aspects of things in the world that we can call “good”. In the next few short lines I’m going to carry you to some “good” things that you may have never thought of as being “good”. Along with a few pic’s that I’ve sorted through that actually may or may not look “good” but with explanation, can look “good”.


Now that looks good…

Burgers and mangoes. Who would’ve thought to put them on the same plate? But the palette says “yes. oh yes!!”. The flavors are beyond imagination unless you’ve tried this wonderful combination. And yes it is “good”.



Sometimes the water feels warm, sometimes, not so warm. Sometimes it’s actually cold to us Bahamians. Do you think you could pick out which picture has the warmest feeling water? And believe me, it’s not always the weather that determines what the temperature of the water is at any particular time. Although we would and could determine that in the Summer time and on a sunny day the water may be warm. But sometimes you know it depends on the motion and direction of the tide and wind.




Look at the fire. Can you feel the warmth? Or is it “HOT”? Both scenes would be pleasurable and memorable and good in the right setting. Here in the Bahamas a beachside campfire is very relaxing and peaceful. Sometimes even comforting beneath a clear sky, listening to the sounds of the waves quietly rolling in.

A warm campfire by the campsite in the snow can sometimes be very much the same. I guess it depends on the weather for the colder fire. In any event you can “feel” good both of them can’t you? Snow and Fire photo by “Tall Sky Walker”(YouTube)

Look around for things you can describe as “good”. Goodness comes in all forms and in all the senses. Ever hear the phrase “looking good”? Seeing the good is pleasurable too. One patron once told his kitchen staff that “a customer’s perception becomes reality”. Just the look of some delicious foods make you feel good.


Find some “GOOD”…


The Wet Season

Where? In the Bahamas? Don’t fret. Every flower needs a little rain to make the best look ever. Take some time to enjoy the rain.

Just a Beautiful Day!

Sometimes, it’s just a beautiful day here in the Bahamas. Look at that water…glistening clear and mirrorlike. No wonder so many visitors call it paradise. We could spend so much time on where to go and what to do but today we’ll relax in a hammock and watch the seagulls flying by and the occasional fish ripple the water.

A Little Bit of Life

Wanting, even desiring something better is a great way to start a day. We can always seem to adjust to just a normal day but when does it become special? Sometimes life seems so mundane and unchallenged and we don’t know how to spice it up.

New Beginnings:

Sometimes it just takes a simple “start moving” idea to get you going. Getting out to new places could help. As well as turning up the music to some good old beats. “Let yourself go sometimes”, as some would say. Maybe an exercise program or a biking club. Whatever it takes, you need to “start moving”.

What will be your motivation today? If you have some ideas, let everyone know.

Don’t let this year finish without you. Make your days count starting today!!!




My Christmas Flower

What’s Special about Christmas? There are so many different people, places and things for everyone in the world. It wouldn’t be fair to place any one thought on any particular person that might justify a “Special Christmas” because there is so much diversity in the Season for each person.

I like flowers and taking photos. To my demise I don’t grow flowers and in recent days, I do very little photography. This photo is a favorite for me this time of year. I call it a Christmas Flower. We have red and green and definitely not in a pot.

Christmas should have no restrictions or boundaries. Just like a beautiful flower growing in the garden. But, someone’s help to nourish and water and love the flower never discourages growth. The type of life growth we desire must have the same attention. We can provide some of our own nutrients for growth but we still need good outside influences to grow. Here are a couple of influential ideas that might make Christmas a little more Special for you:

Praying, Loving, Giving, Socializing, Dinner Parties, Oh the Breakfast Party, the Snack Party, Sharing, A Kind Word, A Helping Hand…

You get the idea. Sometimes the smallest of good intentions will reflect a mirror image form the most unlikely situation.

Be kind to everyone you come across this Special Christmas.

Maybe the Special in Christmas is You!!

Now that Covid-19 has interrupted our lives, we make a special effort to wish everyone another Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Season’s Greetings to Everyone. Remember, you might be that bright and shining star in someone’s life this year. Make it happen!!



With all of the “Spiritual” meditative thoughts on our pages, where is the Spirit? Of which spirit do we receive knowledge or wisdom? Some seek God, some seek Allah, some seek Buddha, which is real? ow do we know? Let’s see what type of conversation we can have about this reckoning of the Spirit. I’ve had a kindling of a wisdom that has explained many aspects of “One True Spirit”. I have seen this hand touch a multitude while also comforting the individual. Have you found peace?
