Peace During Uncertain Times

Times are always uncertain, but we don’t always feel it. Sometimes we think we are in control, but that is an illusion of control. When we feel that things are uncertain, we don’t feel in control….and, in fact, this feeling is closer to reality. During these times, we are forced to live in faith as – Read More –

THE PLAGUE OF PERFECTION CONTINUES

I’d like to say that I’ve learned from my process of publishing other books. Technically, I am more proficient and I have an internal recipe for how I want my books to look at feel. But my process to implement those things continues to be plagued by my relentless (and exhausting) pursuit of perfection. In – Read More –

STAND STILL: REVISITED

Recently, a kind reader of this website came across a quote that I posted in 2014. That quote, “Stand still. The trees ahead and the bush beside you are not lost,” was misattributed to Albert Einstein (the internet is not always a reliable place to source quotes!), so I thank Sara Wright for calling that – Read More –

EVERYTHING IS HERE NOW

When I first read this profound quote by Zen Master Huang Po, I thought it referred to the nature of the mind—if you start thinking of someone (or something), it can cause you to emotionally miss them (or it). Intrigued by this idea, I read some more of his work. Now, as I’m re-reading this – Read More –
