Hey! You Gonna Write About This?

“Hey! You gonna write about this?” the words floated from the phone. “Are you kidding me? Of course!” I enthusiastically cheered to my friend John Knowles, host of the What’s That Like? Podcast. I knew this was worth writing about. It would be an honor to write about it,….but after recording the podcast, and after listening […]

No, I am not interested!

“Hello! Here is a little information about my latest book.” Grasping to a bookmark about my latest book I reach out to a passerby, extending my arm, my life, my vulnerability.  “No, I am not interested!” Was the reply from this guy who didn’t even break his gaze to acknowledge me. Crap! The heck with […]

Four Strangers Become One. Coincidence?

Dr. Wayne Dyer spoke of coincidence often; “In mathematics, two angles that are said to coincide fit together perfectly. The word coincidence does not describe luck or mistakes. It describes that which fits together perfectly.” This past Sunday things fit perfectly together. I was holding a book signing event at a Barnes & Noble book store more than two […]

Hate Myself?

How can I truly hate myself, my job, my boss, my life? After spending the spring participating in Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Presence online teaching I found myself enthralled by Eckhart’s…presence. Yet, I was still lost in my own suffering. Reveling in my past I spent the present moment pondering my flawed thinking about how deeply I […]

Hit ’em with a HUG!

Having three older brothers was awesome and what made it even more exciting was growing up in a family of athletes. My parents were outstanding athletes and my father […]

Tell Me I Can Do It

“Tell me I can do it.” I said to my friend as we were about to embark onto the next routine in our workout of the day. The words You’re tired, You can’t do it, You are going to get hurt flashed through my mind, then I turned towards my friend, smiled and said “Tell me I […]

Not My Dis-ease

When the memoir, Mommy, Why Do You Have Two Birthdays?, was first published I was thrilled to share it with friends, family and colleagues. I couldn’t get the book in people’s hands fast enough. When the book was finally in the hands of many of our friends and family, I waited. I anxiously awaited feedback or a […]

My Review (What Do You Fear?)

This week I am writing to Thank you! for your love and support. It is a somewhat overwhelming task to write a book, and even more so when writing about something so personal as my wife’s experience. In my previous post, Not my Dis-ease, I captured a few of the responses from friends and family regarding the memoir. The […]

Resilience and Acceptance – A Mother’s Love

There was a celebration! It was on a Monday over twenty-nine thousand days ago. Twenty-nine thousand two hundred and twenty to be precise. Twenty-nine thousand sunrises to enjoy! Imagine that, twenty-nine thousand sunrises. Wow! Twenty-nine thousand days to wake-up and say, “I am proud of you.”  This week we celebrate my mother’s 80th birthday! Eighty […]
