Ever since becoming an involuntary member of the “Life-Changing Events Club” in 2009 when my daughter lost oxygen to her brain for 6 minutes,

I have viewed life with a new perspective.

That new perspective has been the greatest gift of my life.

I believe in life’s ordinary events there is extraordinary meaning.

I believe within our lives there are many life lessons which, when applied, can vastly prepare us for what is to come in our lives.

I believe everything we do and everything that happens to us in our life – happens for a reason.

I know the reason may take many years to come to the surface.

But it most certainly will.

And, I believe, if you are paying attention, you will realize the magnificence of how the universe works.

Here is my vision for my life and for this blog:

To improve the quality of other people’s lives by converting my life experience into the seeds of love, kindness, gratitude, and appreciation which I will plant in the soul of others.

I will be present and nurture this new spirit during chaos and crisis and share in and enhance the bloom of this spirit during accomplishment.

To live in a manner and way which will inspire those I serendipitously share paths with to live their version of the same in their lives.

That is the vision for my life and for this blog.

Thank you for your support.

If only it were possible for us to see farther than our knowledge reaches, And even a little past than the far reaches of our foresight, Perhaps we would endure our sorrows with greater trust than our joys. Rainer Marie Rilke Letters To A Young Poet Home   […]


There. Sometimes you get “There” unimpeded by following your vision, this is rare. Often you get “there” by correcting a series of mistakes, each of which taken by themselves would have taken you further off course but somehow, taken in their entirety, directed you back on course. Getting […]

Invisible Power

There are resources you can access that cannot be seen, and they are far greater and more powerful than the resources you might readily observe. Absence of evidence is not evidence of their absence. Price Pritchard You2 Home     Contact    Paperbacks   Ebooks   Audiobooks   […]

Your Best Days

Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The […]
