These days

These days. You wonder will the center  hold. Will the better angels seize the hearts and minds of the people. Hour of the Wolf is that time when you wake up to the challenge. It becomes your individual choice.  How do you define yourself. Are you a hero or a victim. Choose to have a […]

The singular moment

You can usually sense it. That singular moment when time, space, events, fate, and passion all meet. That exquisite experience when the moment is joined with the desire to do and be more.  In Hour of the Wolf I write about the hero’s moment.

The flipping coin

For some reason

  For some reason there are days that the loss of dear ones just overwhelms me. I then reflect and know that those gone are never really gone. They are here in spirit, dreams, memories and lessons learned. Don’t you hold on that way.  They are never really gone. Michael still talks to me in […]

Old friends

Last night in Miami I met up with old friends I hadn’t seen in quite a while. It is amazing how a rich history links people together.  Within an eyelash width we were back in time laughing and reflecting on life and the human comedy.  Time is crazy. But there we were …older and hopefully […]
