I’ve got the good cancer!

AdminUncategorizedLeave a Comment

Many of my close friends and family are currently battling cancer.  Leukemia, lung cancer, breast cancer, melanoma.  On a daily basis they deal with terrible  discomfort and fatigue, invasive procedures, and many, many, many trips to oncologists, testing centers, specialists, and hospitals for surgeries.  The fear and heaviness of it all ripples out across families and communities. Over the past … Read More

The day after my book launch—Amazon #1 bestseller thanks to you all!—I found out that I had an obscure form of skin cancer.  The good news is that it’s a very slow growing kind of cancer, but the bad news is that I’ve had it for over ten years!  In the immediate term it seems to be responding well to … Read More

Power is … Read More

Intimacy, with myself?

AdminRelationshipsLeave a Comment

I’ve been very fortunate in love. Which isn’t to say that I got married and lived happily ever after, or that I haven’t had my share of betrayals and abandonments, heartbreaks and heartaches.  Over the last 30 years, I’ve lived and loved boldly, I’ve made mistakes, and I’ve had my share of all that love has to offer a human … Read More

AdminUncategorizedLeave a Comment

I love flowers. I frequently buy them for myself, and often give them as gifts. But not on Valentine’s Day. I mean, what a phenomenal rip-off on a fake Hallmark holiday, right? One Valentine’s Day I did submit to buying roses for a girlfriend (she had sent me an email link, a not so subtle hint that she wanted roses … Read More
