“Monday 5 Things” ™….. Of Planet B 612 …..

These past couple of weeks have lent themselves to some late-night reflection and I chose some literary relaxation and distraction. During these moments, one of my go-to books is Saint-Exupéry’s 'Le Petit Prince'. The first edition was released in 1943 and weaves the tale of a pilot who crashes in the Sahara and meets a young prince. The prince, who was from Planet B 612, shares his anecdotes of wanderlust as he travelled through the universe to other planets in search of answers to wisdom, loneliness, love, pain, friendship, beauty, and his beloved rose. If you haven’t read this incredible book, give yourself the gift of a few hours to read it. I can assure you it won’t be the last time that you open it up. This morning’s M5T shares some of my favorite quotes from a well-worn copy that resides on my bookshelf.

“Monday 5 Things” ™….. “So That’s”…..

.....our “So That” is the reason we purposefully follow particular paths in life. Choices and definitive decisions are made, “So That” you live your life a certain way, for a specific, often-times, higher purpose. To this day, when facing major decisions in life, whether personal or in business, I ask myself these questions to get to my “So That”.

“Monday 5 Things” ™…..Labor or Labour?…..

As we wake up on this Labo(u)r day Monday, it’s hard to believe it’s September already. Today is a day to celebrate our work, to relax, to take a breath and get ready for Thanksgiving. This morning’s M5T pops open a cold one, gets the grill ready and, with a somewhat tongue in cheek missive, gives a nod to the first holiday of the fall.

Beach Dining: Tybee Island, GA

Summer is in full swing; patios and docks are packed with sun-kissed faces and familiar smiles. Boaters have perfected their wave, and the sunscreen is flowing along with the next Southern heatwave. ‘Tis the season for all the seafood you can eat—likely fresh caught that very morning. Beach and-creek-side hotspots are culinary gems in the seafood world, but the views from the table are even better. South scoured Tybee Island for all of the top spots that guaranteed a beach experience—from casual to elegant atmosphere and everything in between. We’ve got the spots, you bring the ocean-sized appetite.

“Monday 5 Things”™….. Up Above …..

Labyrinths come in many shapes and sizes. And types. Beside physical labyrinths, there are labyrinths of the mind, situational labyrinths, spiritual labyrinths, metaphysical labyrinths, existential labyrinths, and relationship labyrinths. This morning’s M5T considers rising up. Up above the fray, the noise, the confusion, the demands, and the clatter of all that is around us to get to the center of our own personal labyrinths.

“Monday 5 Things”™…..Pebble People…..

I once again pinched myself as I walked down Peter Hays Hill to the Lodge at Pebble Beach, thankful that once again that Michael Brooks and South Magazine arranged for ‘South Goes West’ after Covid cancelled last year’s concours.This morning’s M5T shares some the conversations heard and had during this past week in Monterey, Pebble Beach, and Carmel by the Sea.

“Monday 5 Things”™….. Making Space …..

I have been pondering space of late. Not the type of space that Branson and Bezos went to; although given the opportunity and the cash flow to do so, I’d be there in heartbeat. Rather, I have been thinking a lot about the space in my life. What and who I fill it with. What needs to be removed and replace. Who should I create more space for in my life. At the risk of sounding platitudinal, this morning’s M5T reflects on some of the things I want to make more space for in my life.
