Notes from Steve

May 30, 2022

My life is either a runaway train careening to disaster or a well maintained bullet train.  It feels (to me) that things are going really fast, and I need to maintain control.  I lost my wallet last week so I think the runaway train is more applicable right now.  When I told this to someone - they said “it’s because of your advanced age …” (… long deep sigh …).  I would say it’s more because my plate is too full and things are dropping off.  

The loss of my wallet is not as bad as it sounds.  I had transferred most of the items to another wallet that was easier to carry, and so the old wallet didn’t contain a lot of important stuff.  But the fact that I lost it is frustrating.  I have ordered some tracking devices for my keys and wallet that tie into my phone.  Tools for those who forget/misplace/lose (me).  ((My coach said that it was the “universe” cleaning up stuff - I didn’t need my wallet and the universe took it.  Personally, I think it’s under a bed in a hotel in Minneapolis that I went to for a conference last week.  “Pffft” on the universe taking it.))


Major ugh on the national scene right now.  A guy I know is the hospital CEO at the hospital in Uvalde, Texas - the town where the shooting happened.  It’s like us … a Critical Access Hospital in a small community.  It could happen here.  We’re not that different.  Tom - the CEO - is living his hospital CEO nightmare right now.  I don’t know - but I’m sure he had a lot of connections with some of the victims and/or victim’s families.  Please keep all of them in your prayers.  It’s unimaginably tough.
