Wherein Lies the Difference
"You really think this could work?" my brother asked one day during an impromptu outing at a restaurant we frequented often. In between sipping my room temperature tap water and devouring tortilla chips, I replied with a smile, "anything's possible, if you're willing to put in the work." Conversations of business and big dreams dominated many of our outings which in many ways, I've grown to appreciate more and more as the years have gone by. Later that warm evening after the aroma of fresh salsa, Latin Jazz and great company had then faded into a freshly cemented memory, I thought of the people who’ve had big dreams and desires of great achievement themselves but never quite saw them come to pass. Why? I wondered as the cool autumn breeze slipped it's way through the crack of my window as my car continued it's glide down a near empty route 50, with home set as my destination. Nearly lost in a sea of unbridled thought, I found that solitude almost spiritually evoked some of my greatest inner conversations— that night was no different.
