The mind thinks thoughts that we don’t plan. It’s not as if we say, ‘At 9:10 I’m going to be filled with self-hatred.

–Sharon Salzerg Sign Up for Gratitude and Trust

Wisdom says we are nothing. Love says we are everything. Between these two our life flows.

–Jack Kornfield Sign Up for Gratitude and Trust

Never forget that anticipation is an important part of life. Work’s important, family’s important, but without excitement, you have nothing. You’re cheating yourself if you refuse to enjoy what’s coming.

–Nicholas Sparks Sign Up for Gratitude and Trust

Accomplish but do not boast, accomplish without show, accomplish without arrogance, accomplish without grabbing, accomplish without forcing.

–Lao Tzu Sign Up for Gratitude and Trust

THE TOUR GOES ON

A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.― Francis Bacon We are ending week one of the first leg of the Gratitude and Trust Book Tour.  Since we left LA on Wednesday we have had an easier pace.  We luckily had one thing cancelled on Friday night or we would have been rush, rush rushing and if the planes had not been on time. we might not have made it up here to Vancouver. As Paul always says NO… Read More

TWO DAYS IN LA

TWO DAYS IN LA

Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow. ― Anita Desai   We only did two full days of press and events in LA but for some reason it feels like a week.  All of it fun. All of it energizing and life affirming. We pretty much go from early morning until night. And LA being LA a bunch of that time is spent in transit. Day two started with KTLA Water Cooler Buzz. It’s the the number one morning… Read More

SOMETIMES THE CAT YOU HAVE TO SAVE IS YOURSELF

Accomplishment, Addictions, Bravery, Change

SOMETIMES THE CAT YOU HAVE TO SAVE IS YOURSELF

In his best selling screenwriting series Save The Cat author Blake Snyder declared that the only way an audience will ever have empathy for a character is if he saves a cat. Now “saving the cat” can mean many things. In the most literal sense it is that moment in a story when the hero, no matter how shady or unlikable he could be at that point, climbs a tree and saves a cat. Thus proving to the world and… Read More

THE LEGEND OF THE LOST

Addictions

THE LEGEND OF THE LOST

  One of the constants in my life is travel.   My luggage is so weathered it looks like it was plucked from a yard sale.  Henry Fonda carried it in “Grapes of Wrath”!  It’s been lost several times but has always been returned to me.   Boomerang baggage. I lose things. Actually, that’s incorrect.  I leave things. It’s not good. Never much fun. Realizing something’s missing means a trip to the edge of panic, slamming on the spiritual brakes at the… Read More

A FULL EXPERIENCE

Addictions

A FULL EXPERIENCE

I was in Lake Tahoe over the summer for 5 days. On our last full day there we hiked up to Angora Lake which is somewhat off the beaten path. Service roads to get there. That kind of place. Um yeah. Kind of stunning. Paddle boarding, rock diving, kayaking to name a few of the activities. Not a huge lake but big enough. Like I said, stunning. Oh and if that’s not enough they have fresh squeezed lemonade. Yum! A… Read More
