Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy We are All One Being, One Essence, One Energy, an Interconnected Web of Existence that only appears otherwise through our individual ego structure as human beings. To the extent I can open my heart and mind in service of others I align my "self" with the Oneness of Life.
What Gives Me Hope The countless folks who aspire to be kind, decent human beings and are courageous enough to act on their aspirations for peace and social justice.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I'd resign and support somebody else. I'd rather be the Court Jester!
What/who changed my life and why Although I had been inspired by Martin Luther King, Jr. since I was aware of the outside world, I picked up two books at a White Elephant Sale the summer after I graduated from High School in 1964.

One was The Wisdom of Ghandi, the other The Wisdom of Buddha. Each of them were very small books. The ideas presented were, however, huge.

Although, I've certainly stumbled along and taken many missteps, the ideas I read that summer were fundamental in creating the trajectory of my life, setting out the "bottom lines" for me.

    Dear Friends,
    At this time last year we had just welcomed Keaton Izzy to Planet Earth.  My newest Grandchild reminded me, once again, of the Miraculous Nature of It All.  That day, it was self-evident that the birth of every child is the Incarnation of the Sacred.  I wrote about it in my weekly blog the Monday Morning Mindfulness Courtesy Wake Up Call. 

    Have a look?

    Best Wishes for these HolyDays.
    One Love,
