75: How God ‘Is’ Real! Part 1

We talked last episode about the question ‘Is God Real?’. In this episode I talk to a friend of mine, Scott, to help me get a grip on this question and the follow up question, ‘How IS God Real?’ We float a lot of ideas around and the more we talk about it, the more I listen, the deeper my understanding of my faith becomes.

74: Is God Real?

I have a friend going through some health problems. He asked me if God is real, and if so, could I explain God to him. What you hear on this episode is my struggle to explain my concept of the answer to his question…

71: Fight The Power: An African-American Man’s Peaceful Process in Overcoming Adversity

philly interview

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”

philly interview6

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!

Into the Sun

ocean (3)

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!

3 am…An Incredible View!

I have been getting up early for the last week. My cat wants to hang out with me at three am, like clockwork.

He’s a rescue, one of two, definitely a unique personality, but we love them both.

I remember getting up, petting him, grabbing my camera and heading out to the balcony and shooting skyward…

Checking the shots the next morning…I was rewarded with this one…I thanked the cat!

Photography to me is an incredible tool for stress relief, a form of therapy if you will, I go out and concentrate on finding a subject to photograph and then talk about and share.

Thank you for stopping by. Check out the podcast if you would. Have a great day!

70: When Young Minds Speak

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.

HUG SOMEBODY!

I am not going to post a new podcast this week. Instead I would like to share a show I did about a month ago that is certainly worth repeating. It was called ‘Hug Somebody!’

It is roughly seven minutes long, and the message is quite clear!

We need less hatred, anger, and violence and more, much more, peace, love, and understanding towards our fellow human beings.

Please feel free to share this message with those you love and care about!

It starts with us!

Thank you

Tony
