I spent time in the company of two of my dearest friends today.  One is a friend from high school who has known me my entire adult life.  The other is a relative newcomer to my journey, but one with keen insight into my soul.   I was reminded of the pure bliss of having these men in my life.  Taking time out of our schedules to share a meal,  a cup of coffee and a meaningful discourse was more than rewarding:  it was delightful.  I don’t have insight into the why’s and how’s, I just want to honor them and the time we invested in one another.  So much of our culture is held together with digital images and communiques that we forget how important it is to sit around a table, look into each others’ eyes and engage.

Thank you, gentlemen, for being a part of my life, for reminding me there is nothing more important in this world than friends, and that if I am too busy for you….then I am TOO BUSY!

What an exciting time in the life of! My first book release marks the beginning of a new phase of my professional life.

Journey with me and retake responsibility for your health: body, mind and spirit.
