Humility

Memorial Day has passed, now what?

During yesterday’s “walking meeting” I mentioned to my friend I had been invited to speak to a group of Veteran’s.  My friend suggested I speak about Memorial Day… I yawned, then I remembered. A special high school classmate of mine, surprised me the day of my hearing.  I wasn’t expecting Suzie to be there, she was there… integrity speaks …

From Bleachers to Beach in Prison

The prison life was tolerable when I learned to change the way I looked at things.  For example, instead of referring to the bleachers as bleachers, I referred to the bleachers as “the beach”.  It was a hot place to sit and a good place to stretch your legs and receive some sunshine. In late …

Don’t try to solve the problem!

During last night’s dinner conversation we touched the subject of male listening skills.  As someone at the table was describing how they “fake listen”, the server heard and agreed.  I thought it was interesting how the server heard our conversation, good listening skills, I suppose. It was a funny conversation, but the awareness of listening was heavy on …

Trump in Yoga Class?

We are a society of walking firecrackers, seemingly ready to explode any minute.  Doesn’t that sound relaxing and peaceful? Even our political officials are full of negativity and accusatory towards one another.  Can you imagine Trump in yoga class or Hillary in a humility workshop? I’m convinced our Presidential race operates out of fear, power, self- …

I have a crush on Dr. Seuss

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” –Dr. Seuss I know that is easier said than done at times, and I suppose it doesn’t always make sense.  But in my case, I have found a sprit of joy, through my own suffering. Prison sucked, but now I have a renewed sense of appreciation …

Criminal Conspiracy

Conspiracy to commit a crime.  What does that mean?  It’s not your fault you don’t know, many people don’t know either…until you become charged.  It can happen, I know. Through my lecture testimonial, audiences become alert to warning signs and what to do to avoid fraudsters. Criminal conspiracy is defined as an agreement between two or more people to commit a …
