A Big Reveal: The Excitement – And Nerves – of Activating Joy

Knees shaking, palms sweaty; THAT type of nervous. THAT level of comfort-zone-bordering. I haven’t done anything like what I am doing ever in my life, so of course it will be a bit nerve-wrecking.
Though I believe in myself and what I am doing, it all comes down to this: who needs me and wants to find the change in their lives that will span decades of joyful recognition and life-giving purpose? I believe what I have to give is for everyone, and especially those who desire more, who desire freedom from pain and grief.

What I Hope For You

This blog has a lot to do with the ways in which I enjoy the release of writing; the ways in which I find joy. And still, this blog is even more about what I hope for YOU!

My Daddy’s Sugar Pookum (That Would Be Me!)

“Oh, my baby’s crying again? I got this.” The cool, confident, suave sophistication; it even worked on BABIES, Y’all. I can only imagine that I, of all babies, with my voracious appetite for new and inspiring words and ideas even today, was just as taken by my Dad’s inclination to speak to children, from infantContinue reading “My Daddy’s Sugar Pookum (That Would Be Me!)”

The Mess Before the Joy… Is Now

I would like to get very clear and specific here today: what has been going on in the US and the world is NOT “NORMAL”… whatever normal truly means.
