An Unexpected Turn of Events

Last week, I wrote to you about my father's surgery. Despite him coming through it successfully, his heart couldn't take the recovery. It’s been just over a week since my Dad passed away, yet it feels like an eternity and a minute at the same time. The unfolding events are both ...

Do You Trust Yourself?

THE WEATHER has taken a serious turn here in New England. The days are brisk and I can already smell winter in the air. In fact, it's raining right now and I spy small, while flakes scattered in the mix. With the fall back of daylight saving time coming up, ...

Does this question ever creep up when you're considering a bold move?

This smackdown keeps us small and hidden and dulls our light. It's a way to keep ...

When Choosing a Weapon, Reach for Your Heart

Let me start off by saying, my heart goes out to the people of Paris, Beirut, Baghdad, and every other place on earth where people suffer at the hands of terrorists, extremists, and cowards, including right here in the USA. It's human nature to want to make sense out of an ...

Let This Man’s Courage Open Your Heart about Mental Illness

I recently saw a video of a brave man who recorded himself at the tail end of a panic attack. I've included it below if you'd like to see it. Please note, there is some vulgar language (one instance of the F word), and the volume is very low so ...
