    KEEP GOING! I listened to a webcast delivered by my friend Tom this morning.

  • Hemingway Quote

    I’ve always loved this quote from Ernest Hemingway. Now, as a widower, I’m on a journey – learning new ways to carry love forward. The truth in life is, we all suffer. All of us. Some people never recover from their struggles to find peace. Some never have the opportunity to recover – some choose […]
