Burning 2011

Okay, I’m back. This blog took an unscheduled break for about 5 1/2 months while I focused on other projects. Now it’s a new year, and a new blog that I have solemnly sworn to keep up-to-date. I’m switching to a simpler concept that doesn’t take so much work, so it’s easier for me to update content. I’ve also got a bunch of stories ready to load, so it will be a while before I run out of ideas for new posts.

To start the new year, I’d like to show an example of my newfound affection for IMovie and YouTube with a simple story about a cleansing ritual that demonstrates that even when things don’t work out as planned, they still work out just fine, so long as you can keep a positive attitude.

So here’s the video:

I’m really excited to see what 2012 will bring, and as the year progresses, I’ll share the highlights here.

    Good observation and reflection of your experience, John. I am glad that you are re-enforcing the idea that our emotions can be directed by our choices. Happy New Year to you and Marla!

    I watched this with a smile on the face the whole time. What a great story-teller you are, and I’m loving your insights about staying positive. Thanks for this, John!!!

    Thanks Vadim, and thanks Jane. I had had this plan to create an entirely different video that would have been much more visual and less watching me tell a story. When that fell apart, I had no idea if my attempt to salvage it would work out or not, but apparently it worked at least on some level.

    Haha, I’ve been doing this for years. Now I have a new name for it. “The Burning Bowl” — I like it!
