I dedicate this site to the memory of my stepdaughter, Heather, who was murdered on Thanksgiving 2017. I want to chronicle some of the events and spiritual insights that happened. It is my hope that this may help some other souls who stumble upon this site. Maybe some good can come off this after all (read more here).  ~ May 2018

Working with grief, Part 2: The pain can be a catalyst.

In the talk with my wife, intellect vs emotion, a new way emerges to deal with grief, suffering, emotional pain and healing. It is to not to block the pain, push it away, but to use it as an access point and as a catalyst.

Summer

It's Summer.

Cappuccino flows in Italy.
In Spain, Sangria.
The Grass is green.
The Flowers bloom.
My Son says "Play with me!"

From Lady Gaga to you: the masks we wear

Did you know that all of us wear masks and costumes in our daily lives as well as part of our own “act”? These are tied to the roles we play in life, and are called “personas” which literally means “the masks we wear.” With each persona, we put on a certain behavior and costume in an effort to show their “best face.”

Excellence

Excellence literally means “to raise up” or “elevate.” Someone who is excellent at doing something is so because his or her actions stand our high above the rest.

That’s why, when you want to be excellent at something, your actions must “stand out from the rest” -- and not just by being different, or bad, or excessive, but being “better.”

Don’t just be ordinary – be extraordinary.

Don’t just be plain, stand out,be excellent:

At life
     ...and at whatever you are passionate about.
