Relax. Recharge. Reconnect.

Life gets hectic. In the midst of busy days, too many emails, family and work pressures, we get caught up in the whirlwind. We get lost from ourselves. Life happens. Egos happen. Stresses take over.

We all need ways to return, to find center again, to tap into a sense of peace. We need ways to remember the sacredness of life and the possibilities of the present moment. We need ways that are simple, practical, and that take just a few moments.

That’s what my new book, Your Other Names, offers: inspirational poems and blessings, written by me, that provide a pathway back to gratitude and peace. It’s for reading when you’ve gotten lost from yourself, or from calm, or from joy.

What If I’m Not A Poetry Person?”

I invite you to give this a try. So many readers tell me that they don’t normally enjoy or understand poetry but that my work is helping them find their own doorway in to loving, and benefiting from poetry. My poems don’t use obscure language or complex linguistic gymnastics. They are written to be understandable, inspirational, and to make a difference in your day to day life.
