Closest Friends

I just found out people who write for a living write even when they don’t feel like it. And a common trait among successful people is they get out of bed early even when they don’t feel like it. Do you get it? Do you get the implications of this?! Backtrack with me for a […]

I’m Coming Out

It’s been about six years since a doctor told me to get this tiny lump on my thyroid checked out… a goiter, I guess I’m supposed to say. I don’t use that word very often because it’s about the ugliest word on the planet. As ugly as itself. I think of that Seinfeld episode where […]


If you have read any of my blogs, you’ll see I’m pretty transparent. So… my most passionate desire is to be a person who does not judge people. I don’t care who you voted for. I don’t care if you like piercings on you nipples. I don’t care if you’re a high-powered executive. I only […]

Imagine Health Care (part 1)

I was thinking how great would it be to gather brilliant minds in one place who don’t feel compelled to bitch together about what is wrong, who won’t be tempted to fall prey to media hyperbole, but who will respond as […]

Wake Up!

“And you will try to hide and make it seem like it’s nothin’ But really you feel like everything is crashin’ around you And you develop a problem in trustin’ in other people Which later became an issue that will mentally pound you You only get one life But every time you lookin’ at yours […]
