I’m getting married this Saturday to Donna Mason. It’s the second marriage for both of us. We each have two children, so it will be a blended family. We are both fairly independent and free-spirited, as she’s a bronze sculptor/art teacher/animal lover/horse woman, and I make my living as a business manager/accountant/financial advisor/planner who enjoys golf, drumming circles and new adventures/learnings near and far.
I recently went through some challenging and life-changing moments in terms of my health. At the time, I found myself relating these events to the way I occasionally see things happen with clients in our tax practice. In both situations, I realized, it’s easy to ignore warning signs or potential problems.
There is a natural law of abundance which pervades the entire universe, but it will not flow through a doorway of belief in lack and limitation.”

World affairs can be a source of concern to all of us: the threat of nuclear war, widespread poverty and economic instability, random terrorist attacks, social and political chaos and psychological upheavals of many kinds. The world is in absolute turmoil. Where can we find the wisdom to solve the world’s problems?

A Question of Meaning
A transition from material want to meaning want is in progress on an historically unprecedented scale – involving hundreds of millions of people – and may eventually be recognized as the principal cultural development of our age.”
