                                                                           Australia is one of the go-to places on my ‘bucket list’ as I have long been fascinated with its culture and the concept of ‘dreamtime’.  Along came a book that placed me smack dab, at least vicariously in the […]

                                                   As Spirit often does, it guided me to attend services, this past Sunday at one of the interfaith communities of which I am a part. I was delighted to disover that Lou Tenaglia was what we call the […]

                                                                                                          I met Rabbi Rami Shapiro in the early 1990’s when he had the pulpit at Temple Beth Or in Miami, Florida. I could say that our paths crossed by Divine Design, since I walked into a book store and […]

                                                                          Another one of those Hansel and Gretel breadcrumb trail experiences as I write a review for a newly released book, ‘written through’  troubador, minister, singer-songwriter, humorist, stand-up comedian Scott Kalechtstein Grace.  The colorful paperback treasure is called […]

 Shayne Traviss describes himself as “just an authentic guy doing my best to live my ultimate life and lead the way for others.”  He seems to walk the talk in both the personal and professional  realms.   He is a team player, believing in unity rather […]

                                                                                                                       While ‘sweating my prayers’ at the gym on Saturday morning, I happened to catch the tail end of a show called The Real Winning Edge.  The program profiled young adult athletes who were also facing life challenges. It […]

                                                                     A friend passed along this video link that is an advertisement for Taiwanese TC Bank. It is a beautifully rendered short story in 3:11 seconds about a group of octogenerian men who decided to look aging, illness, loss, grief and […]
