A Preamble - Back at Work - A 2018 Epiphany
My eyes blinked open at 5:00 AM, adrenaline rushing. It is January 2nd, 2018, time to go back to work after the long Christmas break. Last year was full of surprises. The Incredible Power of Inspiration: Creating the Life You Yearn For was released to a world-wide audience. It was my first book and I felt great pride in the accomplishment. I hoped it would change the lives of millions of people seeking to better themselves and live into the lives they deeply desire. I st
The Value of Spacing Out
I love to sit in my 'cup of joe' spot and just think. In the privacy of my very big, grey wing-back chair I don't pay any attention to all the confetti blowing through the landscape of my mind. Instead, I let random thoughts meander in and out, and part of me just pleasantly spaces out. This is the outpost of my inspiration - in these moments inspiration lives real time between my ears - just waiting to be listened to amidst all the thinking that goes on there. Inspiration

Ever Ask Yourself: Who Am I In the Matter of it All?
I've been mulling over a troubling problem ever since Trump got elected. When Trump won the election in 2016 a funny 'hollow' feeling swept through me like a tsunami: first surprise, then shock, and finally an emptiness that spread through my nervous system. I felt like I was entering a cultural frontier where no one really knew what to expect when Trump would take office. How would this surprising and unknown new reality manifest itself in the world - and in my life - in
Why did I write THE INCREDIBLE POWER OF INSPIRATION?
The idea to write this book came to me during an evening when several of my friends and I - some admittedly only acquaintances - were sitting in my back yard drinking Prosecco and watching the late afternoon sun go down. As my friends were talking I began to notice a chilling social process in play: one person would complain about something in their lives - like a crabby spouse - and the others, swirling their wine glasses like a Napa connoisseurs, offered up their analyses
The Mystery of Inspiration
We all have a powerful source of inspiration thriving deep within us, however, sometimes the daily bump and grind of our lives relegates us to waiting for that ‘future time’ when we can live fully inspired lives. I’ve always wondered: ‘Why wait, are you doing something better right now’? There is nothing in life as powerful as our inspiration, our desire to answer burning questions, and we all yearn to live lives that engage those heartfelt desires to create enduring meaning
