Quiet =>peace =>serenity; reduce the stimuli bombarding your ears, then develop the art of stilling the cacophony between them.

You can't fix others, but when someone you love is passing through the dark valley, your steadfast companionship can make the difference between hope and despair.

The god most atheists reject is so narrow and small intelligent people of faith rejected him/her/it a long time ago. #GodIsLove

Congrats to the Orange County GOP for removing the vulgar, divisive Deborah Pauly as first vice chair. This woman is linked to white supremacists and has continually fanned the flames of division. Now we just need to make sure she's not elected as an OC Supervisor.

Some of us call this "holy week." In truth, it becomes holy for those who share our path if we are willing to enter the darkness bearing the promise of light, if we are willing to tread the valley of the shadow of death as an instrument of life, if we will enter others' pain, loss, discouragement, even despair with steadfast love and faithfulness. In order for this week to be holy, we must walk with each other through trials, tribulations, and death until the holiness we bear rolls away the stone before the entrance to our tombs transformed into the sites of our rebirth.

As I get older, meditative running is becoming an oxymoron. Maybe the sound of my labored breathing isn't conducive to meditation--ya think?

Acceptance is not resignation. Acceptance is simply embracing reality. Acceptance doesn't suggest you stop dreaming and visioning a better reality; it just grounds your starting point.

Take the three-fold approach to healthy living: forgiveness, gratitude, & openness.
1) Forgive yourself, others, and life for not meeting your expectations; live life on life's terms. 2) Express gratitude every day--there's always something to be thankful for! 3) Stay open to a fresh perspective; try new things and learn from your experiences; no one likes a know-it-all or a no-it-all!

If your beliefs don't shape your principles, you're in denial about what you really believe.

This week's cover story in Newsweek magazine: "Forget The Church. Follow Jesus." Wow. Quite a read.

Story
Tagline
Give me authenticity!
Introduction
Grew up in the small Nevada town of Yerington. Married, raised a daughter and a son, divorced, and chose love again. Owned businesses, worked for others, pastored churches, and celebrated lives well lived. Hate being told what others think I want to hear; love hearing authentic life stories, in progress or completed. Like baseball, flesh of farm animal, long bike rides, sarcasm, and authentic connections.
Bragging rights
Two wonderful children at UC Berkeley.

    Business Administration, 1977 - 1981

Dr. Barkley provides excellent care and is a very personable care provider. His use of the Graston Technique has been especially helpful to me. Chronic shoulder pain is now a thing of the past thanks to Dr. Barkley's intervention.
