If you like nice photos, then do watch the video. Tuscany is a beautiful area and makes for good photos.

“Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.”
– Hill Quotes

“If you put off everything till you’re sure of it, you’ll never get anything done.”
– Peale Quotes

“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.” – Franklin Quotes

I found the quotes here.

Very often in my life I have had the experience of so much being in the process, that I miss the progress. It does not only happen in my life, it happens in life.

I am so busy living, that I do not notice growing older. Or that pang of sadness when you look at somebody you love and suddenly notice “they are growing older!”

Perhaps it is most noticeable with our children. They grow up so fast. One day they sit on our laps, the next they walk into church with you, beautiful, adult women getting married.

This was a busy day. Lots of things I had to do. It was also a day that brought me to a point to evaluate my progress. I have more clarity of where I want to go and how I want to do it.

Some of that progress you will see on my blog – an integration over different media.

What is your Excuse

Tell me, exactly, why can’t you do it?

But mostly it is shift in mindset.

Many challenges in my life I have overcome with the thought: if he can do it, then I can, too. It worked. Even though I often wonder about that thought. Sometimes I wonder what it says about my thoughts about the other guy! It has never been my intention to belittle anybody!

After endless courses and many more Youtube videos, I have a good idea where I want to go and how I am going to go there. If those guys could do it, so can I, especially if they show the way.

But mostly it is a thing of NO EXCUSES!


I had the privilege to attend a talk by Hein Wagner. Hein was born blind, but he has not discovered it yet. He holds the land speed record (twice) and even rode a tandem bike in the Cape Epic. He has a wonderful sense of humor, are much younger than me, but lived a lot more than me, so the talk was really enjoyable and inspirational. He concluded his talk that morning with

“I am blind. What’s your excuse?”

If you do a Youtube seach on “blind man with vision” you will find a lot of videos better than all the Covid-19 opinions offered free out there.

I think being blind is a lot worse than a Corona Virus! Any storm creates opportunities. Stop the complaining and excuses. Grab the day!

Here is an extract from the talk I attended:
