Sometimes we feel awkward introducing ourselves to complete strangers, but when I saw this man sitting on the lawn in front of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, PA, I knew he was holding a story to be told, and I was really hoping he’d tell me all about it.
‘I AM UNBREAKABLE”
We met as strangers and left as friends and not only friends, but with a deeper understanding of each other, not only as people, but also where we come from, both intellectually, morally, and most importantly, as fellow humans.
A great conversation with a great human being!
Thank you my friend, for sharing your story with us!

LIFE IS TOO SERIOUS TO BE TOO SERIOUS!
Parenthood isn’t easy. Watching these three yesterday made me think of the responsibility we as parents have to our children. Not an easy task being someone’s parent, that is, when you are fully in. It takes a ton of sacrifice, patients, understanding…it’s never ending and yet simultaneously, it is possibly the most rewarding thing I have ever done and continue to do.
This doe is drained: nutritionally caring for these two fawns has taken its toll on her, but she will rebound. As I lay here on the couch this morning staring out of the glass then back at these pics I am reminded at how blessed I am to be the father of two. A tough job, absolutely, even tougher to do it right. And then you hope and pray they become good people. I am blessed that mine are indeed good people, kind people, caring individuals, a great feeling to have as I lay here on Fathers Day and understand I have indeed been blessed with becoming a dad. Happy Parents Day, Happy Fathers Day! Have a great day!
The title to the third book I wrote, ‘Into the Sun’, utilizes a scene like the one above for an important message within.
I’ve always been obsessed with the sea, from as young as I can remember, sitting on the beach, staring outward, wondering if I could walk straight across, where would I be?
This shot was taken at Nags Head, NC, USA, simultaneously while I was writing that book. It’s actually where I wrote most of it, sitting on the beach, staring at the ocean.
Subtle sounds of the waves slapping the shore, the distant sounds of seabirds, the smell of the sea…warm breeze in my face…kids playing off in the distance, collecting shells, building sandcastles…
I had this crazy misconception that I had to get an agent, do it that way or else it doesn’t count.
I guess I should have self published…it’s never too late for that!
I interview my great nephews Luc, and Sean, and ask them about current events, growing up during these times, dealing with Covid-19, Protests, Riots, and their opinions on all of these things. It was very nice to hear what they think.

So much happening today in the city. Rioting, looting, doesn’t appear to be getting better. Prayers to all.
