This is an important day for all Americans, giving us as it does a platform for public recognition of and an opportunity to remember our fallen military, and to thank those who are now serving. My gratitude and respect go out to all those who count past and present military men and women among their friends and families. Freedom isn’t free. I thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
On a personal note, this week has been amazing, as it has marked the publication of a book I’ve been working on for fully twenty years, and my first, tentative steps into the world of website creation and (today!) blogging. For those of you for whom website creation is a breeze, I hope you’ll give me feedback on the site as I develop it. My plan/design is to have each page focus on some aspect of the chapters in the book. Everything from mindfulness to clean eating to quantum physics went into the book and I’ll be exploring what I hope you’ll find is very cool stuff. For me, research is an ongoing thing, and I will be offering new content as I find new things. My personal goal is to write a book a year for the next coming four years. I’ve gotten past the fear of launching the first book and feel as though I’m back at 2nd beach in Newport, R.I. and a wave has picked up the back of my surfboard and is driving me forward.
To those of you I know personally, thank you so much for having put up with my ranting, encouraging me through the darker spots, and offering your support in all sorts of ways. You’re right at the top of my list of reasons to be grateful.
