Call me a fool. I'm introduced to a clean sheet of paper and I hear nothing but words. As blank as it appears to be isn't the image I see. There are conversations being shared. Endless amounts of music played. This blank sheet of paper is a city skyline all its own. I'm here because of an invitation. Invited daily to wander into and around this unbelievable mental escape.

I say the craziest things while in prayer. WAIT! Don’t tune out. It’s just a transparent thought and or expression. So often the entire process of daily writing is put into play because of something said in that moment of collaboration. Today it was, “Mentally we must maintain gain.” It didn’t say “Break free of the circle of light.” It was gain. Gain? Especially when so much has already been given. Let’s brea...

People always ask if I ever have a bad day. Instantly I become a hider. I fake the smile. I do all I can to change the subject. The actor has been activated. Knowing where you are is the importance. I don't wear a mask that falsifies the presence. I am called into being me. Therefore my only choice is to suck it up.

I can’t do the pills. Pain is what pain does. Therefore the choice is to live with it. Which is why you’re never going to be invited over for the weekend or to go camping. The very moment you let the guard down the demons invade the soul. They blast apart all things that were once protecting the presence of who you are. Without pills it paints the picture of a wanderer and not a finely tuned instrument set to play t...

The same is true about the human mind. We all know perfect people. Good looks, nice career, they'v...

How dark are the times? Is it as tough as the headlines are saying? An avenue of constant change. The breaking down of a generation of digital achievers only to start hearing of the tale of how no success is possible without facing the fear, the failure, frustration and friction. Innovation comes from facing the storm not running from it. Such thinking puts me inside my forest in south Charlotte, NC. A collection o...

In June of 1980 there weren’t smart phones to document the moments we’d carry through every decade invited to participate with. Sure, there were tape recorders and heavy as hell movie cameras but nothing in the way of what we have today. I wish there could’ve been a way to fully document what the commencement speaker said during graduation. The only thing I hold is a memory. He warned us, empowered us, found reason...
