memoria

50 year birthday. Thanksgiving. Christmas Season. One son in college and another with his first car. It has all piled up on me. As I was driving to meet a couple of new clients this morning, my mind was flooded with memories. It was like watching an old 8mm film of my life, projected onto... Continue Reading →

50 yr eval

I turned 50 about a month ago. I have yet to reach an age for which I'm not ready, where I feel like I haven't accomplished enough for my age, or at which I am dissatisfied with who or what I am. 50 is no exception. I have learned some things in the last year... Continue Reading →

prayer

The idea of the existence of a god fascinates me. A being that is so big, it spoke the big bang into happening. So infinite that it holds the "infinite" universe like I might hold a towel.

Scribendo Cogito

I don't always learn by teaching. Sometimes, I learn by conjuring up some humility, reminding myself that I'm not an expert in - well - anything, and finding someone who IS, and then submitting to their instruction. On this point, for the past several years I have been studying mediation and more specifically, conciliation, methods.... Continue Reading →
