Nothing fancy here tonight.

I would just like to express my thanks and my gratitude to my wife, my children, my parents, my grandparents, a few friends, and several good authors.

“Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening”

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Robert Frost
New Hampshire

‘Aaron’s Star’ – August 2010

Posted by admin on Jul 28, 2010 in Stuff

Well we’re coming up to one month later than expected, yet ‘Aaron’s Star’ will be available August 2010.

It will be available to booksellers in the USA and UK for their customers, online at our website, and at Amazon and a few others online.

Whew. I went back to my early emails on this project and my heavens it has been almost 7 months in the making.

Aaron’s Star is designed to offer some comfort to those people and parents that have lost a child during term, neo-natal care, or early life.

Here is a sneak preview of ‘a’ page–

Aaron's Star

I’d like to thank Carolyn for literally living through the story with me in more ways than one. Thank-you.

I’d also like to thank Deepali for her glorious, moving, and touching illustrations. She has done a superb job- and Deepali if you read this – Thank-you for putting some ‘good’ life energy and alot of heart into Aaron’s Star.

Where does it go from here? Let’s see. There is a plan mind you.

Dream worth fighting for?

Never compromise a dream,

Always compromise on how it will come true.

Knocking on every door,

The Universe


An Irish Blessing for my Mother

Posted by admin on May 7, 2010 in Stuff

Mom ~

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and the rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Chasing a Rabbit?

Posted by admin on Feb 20, 2010 in Stuff

I subscribe to a useful time and goal management program.

Yesterday I received an email from these folks, and it was quite a short story.

A Zen Master and his student were watching a
fox chase a rabbit.

The Zen Master said, “who will win?”

The student replied, “Master, of course the fox
will win, he is much faster than the rabbit and has
sharp teeth.”

“No” replied the master. “The rabbit will win.

The fox is running for a meal. The rabbit is running
for his life.”

What are we doing?

Are we running for a meal, or running for our life?

Success isn’t defined by your bank account or the car you drive, but rather by the obstacles you have overcome to arrive where you currently find yourself.

Show me a person with no obstacles to overcome and I will show you a dead person.

With wealth comes responsibility and stewardship. The challenges of life and commerce grow proportionately to ‘where you are’.

So back to the rabbit.

I imagine it is true that to move through obstacles requires momentum. It means we are moving. It means we are doing.

It’s kind of hard to deal with lifes challenges while flicking the remote control or re-setting the games console.

Taking time to periodically reflect is time well spent. Time spent taking little baby steps forward each day is time well invested in your success.

Taking baby steps each day adds up to progress and big steps forward.

Run like the rabbit.
