Be the Vortex

Yesterday, I was sitting in a black plastic chair at Meineke in Doylestown,  waiting for my car to be given the thumbs up to be road worthy after a rough winter. Here in Eastern, PA, like many places that endured […]


The Whisper of Trees

Lately I have taken to walk along the paths in beautiful Bucks County; a part of the country where I have lived since the mid 1980’s. It has rolling hills, Fall foliage which rivals that of New England, lovely meandering streams […]


Wake Me Up

  I was listening to the radio on my way to one of my many jobs; this one working with folks in recovery from addictions. A song blasted on through my reverie as I was contemplating all of the tasks […]


S’Mores In Heaven

“The mark of your ignorance is the depth of your belief in injustice and tragedy. What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the Master calls the butterfly.”—Richard Bach   This is an excerpt from my book: The Bliss […]

Move The Couch

  Some solutions are so obvious that they are ‘hiding in plain sight’ and I like to say, that “if it had teeth, it would have bitten me.” This morning, I was presented with something that simple and profound. As […]

Floating Down the Delaware

  One of my favorite summertime activities is grabbing a big rubber inner tube and taking it to the Delaware River near my home in Upper Bucks County, PA. When most folks in the region think of the Delaware, what […]

Overlapping Soul Circles

I inherited a gift from my father Moish, either by genetics or observation. Born and raised in South Philly; a multi-cultural neighborhood, he seemed to know someone everywhere we went throughout my childhood.  I marveled at his ability to connect with people […]

The Other Side of Fear

Fear is a funny thing….both ha-ha funny and strange funny. It sneaks up on me in ways that I had never expected and in circumstances I had never considered. I have been able to laugh in its false face, once […]

Crossing The Threshold

  “Everybody wants to rush through transition like it’s a bad root canal. But transition is a threshold. It’s a sacred life appointment—the crossing from one world to another. You are compelled to let go of fear and uncover uncanny […]

Finding My Freedom

  Friday night saw me seated at a long table in the suburban South Jersey home of my friends Lisa and Gamell. A white table cloth covered the new dining room table that was being used for the first time […]


  Christmas morning found me at one of my interfaith communities where I share spiritual sustenance. It is called Circle of Miracles, and for very good reason…miracles flow through the place, like sweet aroma of lavendar on a breeze, they reverberate […]

Taking On the Pain of the World
I am an empath. Rather like the Star Trek: The Next Generation character Deanna Troi, I can pick up on the emotions and sometimes physical sensations of others, whether or not I know them personally. It is both a joy and a challenge. I love ...

God Singing Through Us
"Don't die with your music still in you."-Wayne Dyer Another powerful dream this morning, the remnants of which linger as I am typing these words. I was in a rural setting with a group of adults and children. A mischievous little girl runs up ...

Being In The Flow of Life
Consider your life as it is right now.  Is it filled to overflowing with all that you desire, or does it feel dry and lacking in pizazz and juice? Take a moment to do an inventory of what you have going for you. Do you have a place to live ...

What Would Yoda Say?
Although he is a fictional character created by Muppeteers Frank Oz and Jim Henson, Yoda remains my favorite little green sage. His wisdom is exemplary and in his death, he melted back into the Force, as I believe we all do. One of the most ...
