So at long last, I return to my home city of New York City. I have longed and craved this day for the 9 years I moved away.

There is no question as to the value of the journey between. Four years in LA allowed the birth of my then girlfriend, into my ever amazing love of my life, my wife. Five years in Chicago...

Once in the dark of night,
Inflamed with love and wanting, I arose
And went, as no one knows,
When all my house lay long in deep repose

-St John of the Cross

The day is often so busy it stunts creativity for me. Once the sun sets my imagination and inspiration come alive and bring a smile to my lips as I feel life...

I envy not in any moods
The captive void of noble rage,
The linnet born within the cage,
That never knew the summer woods;

In envy not the beast that takes
His license in the field of time,
Unfetter'd by the sense of crime,
To whom a conscience never wakes;

Nor, what may count itself as blest,
The heart that never plighted troth
But...

Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Bring the Earth your love and happiness.
The Earth will be safe
when we feel safe in ourselves.

- Thich Nhat Hanh

Years ago, I was filled with excitement as I carried my copy of “Seven...

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child -- our own two...

The definition of insanity is repeating something over and over and hoping to get a different result. Well not according to Webster or Merriam but to me. This is oddly close to the same for the definition of Hell.

I have been sharing my call to give more to the quality...

There are those moments when the person you are rises above the noise of the day.
With all the world has to offer it can be so amazing to think how easy it can be to lose yourself. It's always been here, this time that I find the spirit of my life most vocal. I wake if I sleep and stir when I am...

I feel so good!
Working out together is both binding and challenging. The very healthiest way, next to sex to bring us together and make ever evident the differences in our approaches to challenges. The time walking and jogging is amongst our most passionate discussions. You don't talk non sense when every breath you take is work.
Setting and achieving goals together is rarely...

When it rains, one needs to remember "It can't rain all the time".
I spent two weeks back home in New York and it rained for five and a half days of it. The rain was not soft, it was not soothing it was angry, but I loved it. Nothing has ever dampened my love for New York my home, my heart. The division...
