Fish? Really?

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven…..
As most of you know the words are adapted from The Bible, book of Ecclesiastes
and the music is by our very own Pete Seeger…

I find myself searching a lot lately,
Maybe it is the time of the year…
Maybe it has to do with aging
Maybe in my case it has more to do with growing up~
Whatever the reason is..It has become clear to me that I can do better
It is in my hands……

Over the course of the summer I do a lot of talking about the Fish philosophy…
4 major principles…..Be there, Make their day, Be present and Choose your attitude.
I like to think I not only talk the talk but I walk the walk….

Join me!



  1. I applaud you all for practicing The FISH! Philosophy and showing up with a choice of attitude. Being the “attitude adjuster” at The FISH! Philosophy, I have the honor of speaking to organizations throughout the U.S. Their one desire is to commit to change and sustain that committment. Much like a diet. The only way to give outstanding service and experience, is to be fully engaged as a staff member. It’s your choice. When given our 4 practices of Be There, Play (be creative), Make Their Day, and Choose Your Attitude, you have common language to reward and recognize each others efforts. You make a commitment to yourself and your camp. Make it a great summer and most of all have fun!

In years past we gave a fish if someone did one of the practices….this year will be a challange for them and the staff. You should check it out over the summer.
