Each one of us is on his or her own journey in this adventure of life. Life is purposeful under all of the materialistic and pursuits of distraction. It is a journey of evolution.

Today, I have reached the age of 50. I am still awaiting the trumpet blast to herald this major life milestone. Well, not really. But, nonetheless, it is not a milestone in my life that has escaped reflection. I found myself, really in the last few months, but even more so in the last couple [...]
Today marks the one year anniversary of my dog Mandy’s death. It has been a long year of very profound grief for me. It has not been an easy time at all. And yet, ironically, as I come to meet this day, as I had feared to some degree, the meeting and experiencing of this [...]
