The Polar Express is leaving the station tonight…are you climbing aboard?
(Update 12/27/05: Several people asked me, “So what’s up with THAT post?” so I thought I’d explain. If you’ve seen the movie, there is the main character — a little boy who doesn’t believe in Santa Claus — and another seen above who are reluctant to get on the train. The metaphor is: Do you have the faith in yourself — and that which you can not yet know — to climb aboard the train?).

Connecting the Dots Podcast
Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows.

Happy Birthday, Steve!
If “It’s a Wonderful Life” inspires introspection for you, try watching Bill Murray’s “Groundhog Day” every Valentines Day. I’ve found that film to be even more powerful in that regard.
Groundhog Day is another family favorite. You’re right…it is more powerful though *I* identify more with George Bailey (and his doing good stuff though in relative obscurity) than Phil Connors (Bill Murray who was a pompous and insensitive ass!).
