When I was a younger man, and a boy, I had what I thought were some of the worst jobs in the world. For example, one winter I worked at a ski area. My job was dragging frozen fire hoses across ski slopes so the snow maker dudes could make snow when God could not or would not. If you don’t believe hell can freeze over, I assure it can if you’re a snowmaker.

Help. I can’t write. I want to write, but I’m having the toughest time putting meaningful words together on a digital page.

I also know I am not the only one who feels like damaged goods. And that’s why I share my experience and choose to be transparent; I want to help others.
It is only by observing our…
This is one of my first watercolor paintings I did about six months ago. Nobody told me watercolors are the hardest medium in which to paint; I just jumped in. I didn’t know what I didn’t know.
Here’s the deal after about 8 months of painting and learning to draw; I’ve gone backwards.

This article is about stress management. Stress almost killed me because I let it. Like everyone else, I didn’t know what I didn’t know about the causes of stress or what to do about it.
When I was a younger man, shortly after I sold one of my small businesses, I lost my way emotionally, spiritually, and financially. The stress I experienced led to a living hell on earth.
At first, I blamed everyone else but me. Over time, and with lots of help, I learned to make stress my friend and develop healthy habits. …
