  • Shifting Awareness

    One of the biggest writing challenges I have is that I use my iPhone. This assistive device is filled with lots of distractions, including unread emails, FaceBook, weather forecasts, alarms and iCal appointment alerts.

  • How My iPhone Changed My Life

    There is one man whose life has forever changed my own. Steve Jobs was a creative entrepreneur who died on October 5, 2011. I sustained a traumatic brain injury 3 years earlier, and I felt a deep sense of loss for this man who I’ve never met. There isn’t a day that goes by that […]

  • Prosperity Report

    Each week, without fail, I am moved by the prosperity reports that are offered during the 4T Prosperity class, which I’m taking for the sixth time. Some are extraordinary manifestations, while others are rather small, sweet, yet significant moments of realization.

  • I Feel You In My Memory Now

    You were my best friend, and there’s someone missing now. But I can’t recall who. I feel your fingers interlaced in mine. This must be how we held hands. I sleep with a body pillow on my right side. This must be where you laid. I pull this pillow on top of my chest and […]
