Welcome to my Blog!

Writing is one of my passions.  I have found it to be both a great hobby and an agent of healing for myself and many of my clients.  In this blog, I plan to share thoughts on various topics. Some will be related to my practice and others will be more creative in nauture.  It is my hope that these writings will create a useful opportunity for interaction.

Twin Towers, Solidarity and Resolution

The events of 9/11 seem not that long ago to me. I can remember my two reactions when the twin towers were hit by planes. The first one was wondering how bad of a pilot that someone might have to be to hit a building. I’d been walking hall duty when my partner,...

Smells Like Fitting In

  The forty or so songs I have on my Spotify playlist help me to get through a long run every morning working toward a 10K race. My body screamed for a break toward the very end of my run, and as I lowered my heart rate and breathing, the late Kurt Cobain...

Memorial

Police sirens ring throughout Paris as I sit in shade by the Place of the Bastille at a busy intersection.  The memorial of the French Revolution was not a far walk from Charlie Hebdo, and I cannot help but think of “the violence inherent in the system,”...

Rest

Waking up in fresh air is not something I’ve done for a long time, at least in a house.  Certainly not on a hotel.  But where I’m staying is not like a hotel, rather more like what I’ve heard people describe a hostel to be like, complete with a...

Motivate

It’s time to begin playing catch-up with Laurie Sutton’s Instagram project.  Around Father’s Day, I began writing a piece to go with her word for that week (I don’t even remember now what it is), and I found myself having trouble because my adopted father and I, as...

Pride

  I sat patiently in the church sanctuary that had been chosen as the talent show venue for the students at my oldest son’s school while he and his young friends prepared to sing a group song they had been practicing for the talent show. A nine year-old, he...
