GOOD MORNING! 👨‍🎨❤️👨‍🎨. I am not defined by the bad things that happen to me. I am certainly not defined by the good things that have happened to me. I am defined by my ability to live a curious and creative life filled with passion, wonder, a frequent wander and the beautiful relationships, friendships and ideas I am able to build on.

The world is full of fools, trickery, wonder and surprises, and while we’re all in this together, we all go through the same good and the same bad in variation, but for me the Journey is indeed the thing!

Practice MyGive4 and help others to thrive each day, we’re all in this together!

I am really drowning right now. I am on my first vacation since 2017 and am unplugged, was relaxing and really doing everything right to heal from my violent knife attack in December.

This morning when I got the call from my Sister that my Mom died this morning I fell apart. My friend Alan M. Scofield just called me and as he always does offered nothing but love and unconditional support.

He also said this:

“I just realized that one of the best things you’ve ever done for the world and everybody that knows you is to live with your heart open, an open book.

Only a few special people live that way. And you are that kind of special.
Mahalo my friend:-)🙏”

I appreciate that so much because I try to live my life out loud, not sheltered, not private. I very purposefully do it because I want people know that life is a journey, this includes mine. I want people to get that we are all connected and no matter how fantastical or horrible my life is at times, that we all walk our own path with many common and shared experiences.

Until 5 hours ago I did not know how deep the pain is to lose a Parent, yet many of you do. So this post is to simply say, I SEE YOU, I have empathy for all that we collectively experience in life, and I send you all my good thoughts and my ongoing offer of support in anyway I can.

Now I will go watch a Hawaiian Sunset and have a chat with my Mom .

Thank you for the kindness. Send good thoughts to my Daddy, as he lost his Bride today. ❤️🙏🏼❤️ (This pic of my Mama was her sleeping peacefully at Christmas). I love you Mom, rest now.

So each Christmas Flight for the last 7 years now on @united I buy everyone on the Flight a Drink and a Snack Box for the Kids! It’s my practice of @mygive4 and a way to bring a little kindness into everyone’s day! I just arrived in Denver on my way to Kansas City after Flight number 1. The Flight Attendant came up and handed me this hand made note from 2 Kids and their Parents in Row 31! I’m officially “ThePlaneSanta”This just made my day!!!!!! Merry Christmas everyone! BE WELL, BE CREATIVE, BE GREAT, BE GIVING! -Mark 🎄❤️🎄

12/16/2021

Attack Update: This morning I was at the first court hearing for the guy who nearly cut my hand off last Tuesday! The Public Defender tried the “Self Defense” play and the Judge did not buy it, due to the many videos and witness reports, combined with the fact that I was unarmed. So he remains in Custody with no bail. My next court appearance is Tuesday morning via Zoom where I will testify under subpoena as to what happened at his preliminary hearing. I will be in Kansas City, so I need to find a fast internet connection.

As for me, I am in a huge amount of pain, but am avoiding all of the medications prescribed except Ibuprofen. Nights are the worst despite constant elevation. They are unsure if I will regain full use of my hand, but doing my exercises and will see the Trauma Surgeon Friday morning before leaving for Kansas City for Christmas

I felt sorry for this man in court today. I hope he gets help and can learn from this pain. I hope I can recover as I am left handed and have much more to do!

Thank you all for the 1000’s of comments, calls, emails and concern. How blessed am I? I continue to practice @mygive4 and encourage you all to do the same! Definitely feeling 64 years old this week! 🙅🏻‍♂️

May you celebrate in your own way this holiday season and spread the love you wish to share with whomever you like to be near!

BE WELL, BE CREATIVE, BE GREAT, BE GIVING!
