Winter Storm

There is a winter storm all around us....yet the sun still shines on all of us.

Brave the storms of life and watch the sun come out.

Wishing you all safety and peace within the storm,


The Spirit of the Superbowl

Hey there Giants and Patriots Fans!!!!! I wrote this after the work I did with the Giants, Patriots, Eagles and Saints from 2000-2002. Enjoy the game! Excerpts from my book, Touched By People, Places and Things....
Spirit of the Super Bowl
You are "Giants" not because of how tall you are or how big you are or even how loud your bark is but because of how big you dream.
You are "Patriots" not because you serve this country but because you serve a God of your understanding or a Higher Power.
You are "Saints" not because of religion but because of spirit.
You are "Eagles" not because you can fly but how beautiful you glide in the sky.
What is the spirit of your personal Super Bowl?
Same time next year........

Happy Holidays

Wishing you and your family the best of "People, Places and Things" during this Holiday season 2011. Happy Holidays and the joy of a New Year!

The Heart and Soul

Titles from “Touched By People, Places and Things”……
The Heart and Soul
One beats while the other quietly stores the very essence of who you are
Many will never experience getting into either of them
Both lie deep within
Two secret places and things within all of us
Where the spirit lives and the God of our understanding dwells
One dies while the other lives on forever
Neither exempt from pain and turmoil
The most treasured things that one possesses
One stores pain while the other one restores faith to heal the pain
Something greater than us knows better than anyone else
One has a protective shield around it but the other is too deep to even get to
One can be repaired, rebuilt, removed, restarted or replaced and the other is simply renewed and at rest
People will be remembered and defined by both
They can be so cold or like gold
You cannot hide from either of them
Feel the joy and the pain
It’s possible to have one without the other
Both tell the greatest story ever told
The keys to who you really are
The challenge is—do you know how you would like to be remembered and defined by both?
Can’t have one without the other………


9/11......My sister's birthday....a day the world will never forget!
Excerpts from my book with peace, love and honor in memory of my sister's birthday and over 3,000 people who lost their lives senselessly.
It was always a great day for me
This was the day my sister was born
The day was simple just because of that
In 2001, it became the day the world would never forget
A tragic time that changed the way we trust, act and feel
The day the Twin Towers crumbled
On this day there was no black or white
Just people mourning everywhere
I was evacuated onto Boerum Street
At the tip of the bridge
As I exited the Brooklyn Criminal Court building
I stepped into what looked like the Twilight Zone
I coughed as the black smoke chocked me, took my breath away
Fear set in as I remembered that my mother was down there in the moments of impact
I was lost for words and all cried out
All i could do was pray and pray some more
I called my sister to say happy birthday and that there was no news about our mother
We cried together on the phone and I knew my sister's birthday would never be the same
Days later I was asked to conduct grief counseling with the NY Giants
This was in honor of my earlier work with the team
I saw grown men cry and was sad with them
As we all mourned the loss--together
For years my sister did not celebrate her birthday
I am happy that that has now changed
Whatever you remember about that day
Wherever you were on this day
Remember and reflect on the unforgotten spirits and souls that the world will never forget
Gone but not forgotten....September 11, 2001

The Umbilical Cord

For anyone caught in the grips or feeling smothered by an Umbilical Cord....Cut it and be free. Excerpts from Touched By People, Places and Things........
The Umbilical Cord
Cut, clamped and set free
The only thing left that symbolizes its existence is an "innie or outie" as the navel forms
But what happens to it?
How many other ones exist on the outside world that bind and tie us down?
Cords that wrap around us like a protective shield
At some point every one of them should be cut
Don't you want to be free?
They appear in the form of bad relationships, jobs, people, places and things in our lives
We are tied to them because we are scared to cut them loose
Keep the spiritual one that grounds you
This one is a good one
Hold on to it as it connects you to something greater than you or me
Cut the rest loose

Sunrise, Sunset

For Amy Winehouse.....RIP where there is no more addiction, hurt, pain, shame or sadness. Celebrate her life, be touched by her music! Excerpts from my book, "Touched By People, Places and Things" (page 89).
Sunrise, Sunset
We are all born with a purpose
Born into two different settings
Sunrise is the day we enter the world
The mystery is everything that now lies in between
The first process in which we cry to celebrate the birth of a person
Does the sun really come out?
Sunset is the day we leave this world
All we leave behind is how we lived and how we treated others
This is the process in which we should celebrate the life of a person
But where did the sun go?
Sunrise, Sunset
