Yoga vs. the Board of Education
I believe the more we come together to discuss what troubles us, in a civil manner, the better for all. But when we make decisions based on “beliefs”, versus real personal experience/knowledge or a viable eminent threat, we tread down a rabbit hole…quickly.
Do we miss opportunities and openings because we are moving too fast?
Have you ever seen a hummingbird fly by? It reminds me of how I move through the world at times. In other words, moving too fast to be able to enjoy the finite moments in life. For example, my son recently came to visit me for 30 days. He arrived July 31st. We had aContinue reading “Do we miss opportunities and openings because we are moving too fast?”
I just spent a long weekend in Boulder, CO. Reflecting on all of the interactions I had, I had the following awareness last night: How do we do ourselves fully and bravely – regardless of our fears of the outcome? I met with and spent time around a good number of people that were newContinue reading “On Hold”
How does your father see you?
My father still calls me Will or Billy, names I stopped being years ago. Our conversations always drift back to a time when I was still a boy, a child; his son. You see, it is as if my father took a mental picture – a snapshot if you will – of me as aContinue reading “How does your father see you?”

We could never imagine taking responsibility for the damaged caused by that raging ego. We don’t understand the concept of cause andContinue reading “A license to kill”
Taking Action – in love and relating
I would like to share my relationship story. My partner (we’ll call her M) and I met at a retreat and quickly became attached at the hip. We dated for three months, then I moved in. A therapist once commented that we got our relationship equation backwards – ” you two had started relating beforeContinue reading “Taking Action – in love and relating”
Taking Action – advocacy and the will to help others
The young man needed work and was willing to go door to door to ask. He said “I need the money so I won’t have to sleep on the streets. It’s really hard to find a place to stay when you’re on your own”. I could feel my throat tighten. Such a simple request, yetContinue reading “Taking Action – advocacy and the will to help others”
Thoughts on the holidays
As the clock ticks closer to the hour of old Saint Nick, I send these wishes to the world: That we may all find a peace that is unusual and surprising. Something that vibrates deep inside. May we see money for what it is – paper – not for what it makes us. May weContinue reading “Thoughts on the holidays”
