JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 32 :: what’s the score

1 Feb
I’ve been in an airport since this morning, before the sun rose. The Blizzard has rerouted and rearranged my plans, along with many others. But it’s good to know that the Super Bowl goes on… as evidenced by everyone huddled around TV’s throughout the airport.

Including me.
Until now.

I just realized I have less than an hour before my flight leaves and I need to post my blog (or I will miss the window for today, and I won’t let that stop this 5-year writing streak!).

So I had to pull myself away from the game. I have no idea what the score is while I’m over here in this corner of the airport writing, sucking up juice from an outlet to keep my computer running. I can hear the cheers and boos coming from afar but I have no idea what they mean. Of course I’m hoping it’s for the Pats good fortune but I am surrounded by Seahawks fans so…..

And then something hit me! As I pulled myself away from the crowd I see something beautiful. Further proof that we are all connected. We are all plugged into this game (well, most of us) one way or another. Whether it’s for the team, the commercials, or as my friend Laura said about her kids, they care more about the food!

Speaking of commercials. I am beyond moved by these Coke ads. The brand has taken the Big Game and turned it into a platform for a big message. One that we all know is true = what we say to each other matters so let’s talk about things we all want to hear.

And while Coke wants us to hear a message to crave more sugar, I know what we all really crave is love. I know this from my own trials and tests. When my body craves something sweet what I really want is some LOVE. Or something I can’t have, like a hug from my mom. Give me some sugar! As Kid President says.

We are all connected. But it’s being connected to our hearts that matters most. That’s the big game. So while I have no idea what the score is right now, I do know this:  when we all live from our heart, from a place of love, everybody wins.

More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 18 :: pats-tastic bliss

18 Jan
So….. that was a day full of football. And some serious bliss (and panic) inducing games, especially if you are a Seahawks fan. Over here we are in Patriot bliss! That game was Pats-tastic! Holy Patrimony!

Ironically we are Patriots fans living in Seahawks territory who happen to be related to some serious “Hawks” fans. (Every time they talk about the 12th man I think they are referring to Tom Brady.)

Tonight, when we shared both of our teams victory over the phone, Justin tried to get his little niece to say “Go Pats!” and he promised that he would say, “Go Hawks!”  Being a young Seahawks fan and a smart little cookie her response was, “You go first.”

As Vince Lombardi said, “People who work together will win.”

So bring on this family splitting Superbowl Sunday. At least we have a few weeks to prepare, and tease, and root on Number 12 …. Tom Brady that is!

Go Pats. 

More tomorrow. 
Lovemore,
Jamie
