What is Life but one mysterious, frightening, impossible, inspiring transformation after another?"

My writing practice has lead me to write a book of poem prayers, "To Whom It May Concern: Prayers Without the G-Word," a set of Soul Message cards, loving messages to you from the Universe, the companion book for the cards, called aptly enough, Soul Messages, and my blog,The Joy Report (for your healing journey), and other books, guides, workshops, and writings, centered around the themes of recovery, spirituality, creativity and soul care.

What I Care About

Writing is my natural state, my oxygen and my lungs. Next to tying my shoes and reading, writing is one of the essential miracles of my life. (Each of them was so hard, I still remember learning how to do them.) I’ve been taking refuge in the blank page, trusting the direct transmission from heart to pen so long that it is the major way I connect with source wisdom. I also connect with you, the reader and co-traveller on this path.

What path is that? It’s the path of becoming who I truly am, the path of knowing that there is, indeed, more to life, always more, a never ending process of transformation. It’s the path of people who struggle with “Can I heal?” and for whom life has sometimes gone terribly wrong. It’s the path of redemption and transformation, hope and inspiration.

As a kid, I sensed that the world could be - and I thought should be - a magical place, more magical than anyone was willing to allow it to be. Now, as an adult, I see that we are free to create our own reality. Reality is what you intend with your heart and with your hands (actions) to come to pass. My writing is my love letter to you, to myself, to life. The reality I intend to create through my writing and with your companionship is a world full of loving, healthy people, a world that is thriving, a world that is at peace. I tell you, because I know, you can heal. Healing is always possible. Follow me. I will show you how, as I learn and as we learn together.

"Everything you need you already have. I simply help you find it."
