• The Rabbit And The Garden

    Stories carry the seeds of our humanness. They help us, teach us, heal us, and connect us to what matters. I’ve been reading a book by poet and philosopher Mark Nepo called The Book of Awakening.

  • As The Crow Flies

    If we were to drive from one of end of the state of Florida, say the northwestern Pensacola panhandle; to the other end, say, beautiful southeastern Key West, we would travel over 792 miles of road.

    More and more, I come across clients and friends who suffer from the chronic and widespread addiction of Too Busy. They may be Too Busy to play with their children or have lunch with an old friend. Perhaps they’re Too Busy to see family, near or far; or to join that volunteer group they so […]
