• What’s This About

    While coaching swimming nothing would send the hair on the back of my neck standing more than the words ‘I CAN’T’. My internal scream would send out a louder ‘WHY NOT’. The interaction, the turbulence, provided a direction…head first into the fire. I feared that the ‘I CAN’T’, if not investigated, concretes itself into the safe harbor, the containment, of a lifelong ‘BREAKWALL’. The ‘WHY NOT’ is ‘THE BEYOND’, the battle cry, the direction, the salvaging effort. The metaphor is ageless, human.
    Going ‘BEYOND BREAKWALLS’ is living your life… ‘BBW’ is the encouragement.

    I am dedicating these efforts in support of 'The Brotherhood For The Fallen'

    They represent reverently, modestly, and humbly the individuals who chose a side, planted their heels, and met their final call. They are Hero’s, represented by Hero's. It's an incredible honor.
    Thanks for visiting, that too is an Honor...

Dare to be Great. Yes YOU..

Dare to be great? Me?


“Yes, why not”?


‘Because it’s to difficult’.


You got something better to do?


There is a destructive force, that when crossed, becomes a one way trip. Enjoy the ride.  Go there…


The people that EXIST within the walls of these boundaries, this force, do just that…EXIST. They will be the ones relying on slander and criticism to make their case. They will be the one’s who will spend their entire lives hiding their jealousy and resentment. They are angry.


You cannot go back, you belong in the ring. Once you DARE you run the risk of failing and you will. The possibilities pick you back up and keep you from the ’10’ count. Once you DARE you will never again fit in the world of the critics, you will have experienced vision. There is no describing being inside the metaphorical ring nor why you prefer the view.


Milk the soul of this life. You have become a ‘giver’ rather than a ‘taker’, and your code by which you live daily is to DARE courageously.


‘Yes, YOU

  • About Nial

    I fell a few times in the past few years that 'BBW' is a climb back, a rekindling of my Soul. The postings keep me 'tracking' in a passionate direction. I need that, Passion. The other piece that is so important to me, especially at this time in my life, is to somehow share the experience, the attitude, humor, pain... all things human. It's in this place we can relate and in certain moments...carry each other. I need that too.
