Words to live by in 2009

A very good friend just shared this quote with me. At the risk of sounding cheesy, I found it to be inspiring and, well… majestic. It’s too grand not to share. My first 13 days of 2009 have been exciting, profitable, and enlightening. This quote will fit in nicely with those themes. I hope you find that it does the same in your life.

The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he’s always doing both.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

2008 was a fun and interesting here. Here’s to an even better one in 2009. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours. Be safe and remember the things that matter most. Don’t take them for granted.

All the best,


Get out. Vote. Make History.

Coming from Birmingham - ground zero of the Civil Rights Movement - this election has surreal and historic implications for me. But, regardless, of political affiliation, race, gender, or economic background, make sure you get out and vote. Make History!

Today, I’ve already driven over 100 miles to my polling place, had my car door hit by a baffled senior citizen, and heard my aunt recount a hilarious story about an overzealous voter throwing the Black Power Fist in Wal-Mart. I’m sure there’s more laughing and head-shaking to come.

If you have any political stories to share, let’s hear ‘em. I can only imagine what you all have been seeing and hearing out there. Until then, enjoy the day and make sure your voice is heard.

I’m Deon Gordon, and I approve this message.
