Welcome — My purpose here is to share stories that I hope will offer a moment of pause and reflection on themes that nurture the positive sides of ourselves. There’s so much negative news in the world today, pressing problems that desperately need our attention and care, but I don’t think we can adequately address what’s wrong in the world without bolstering ourselves significantly with what’s good. This is what motivates every story I create.
Stories are a two-way street, the listening is just as important as the telling. Please feel free to leave comments on my posts because I’d love to hear your stories, too, and I know other readers would, as well.
