Question of the day...

Thursday morning and I have snowblowed my driveway twice in the past 24 hours. The good news is that the snow has stopped...but that also means I am back to work.

The first thing I do every morning when I get to work is check emails, facebook and blog postings, and of course, fix the coffee. This morning as I read made my rounds, I found friends in need, family enjoying life, made new friends, and noticed that this life we live is full of challenges.

I have a question for you this morning...but I want you to think long and hard about it before you answer. No trivial blatherings here. Search you heart and answer this...What are you passionate about?

Passion is a funny thing. Most people mistakenly think it has to do with love and sex. But what I want to know is what drives you? What gets you out of bed in the morning? What makes your heart race? Is it a person? Your job or hobby? Your children, grandchildren, dog, or motorcycle?

Today, my hope and prayer for you and that you will take a few moments to think about yourself, your life, those around you, and your passions. I'm guessing, that for some of you, you just may be surprised by the answer! Discover your passion and follow your heart!

In the beginning...

Welcome friends! Looks like I finally joined the tech age and have decided to create a place where I can leave my thoughts...(just hope I can find them later when I really need them!) Gintzoo's World! A place for friends, thoughts, ideas, pictures, poetry, motorcycles, and whatever catches your fancy.

Allow me to begin this blog with a short poem. Hopefully, you will get the idea. From me to you...


In this age of fast paced things,
of high speed cars and airplane wings,
people say and do most things
without really knowing why.

To get ahead, to leave behind,
to take a road where 'ere it wind,
decisions burden every mind;
we talk but we don't think.

Words are words, we say them now,
when ideas brush across our brow.
We promise anything and vow,
these words are from the heart.

But four small words my mind can see,
from heart and soul I send for free;
These four small words I say to thee,
from me to you, 'Grow old with me'!

My advice to you?? "Enjoy's the only one you have!"
