A Special Note:

I recently discovered that my “Contact” page on this website hasn’t been forwarding messages to me. Apparently, this has been going on for several years without my knowledge! (Yikes…) So, if you’ve sent me a message any time in the past few years and failed to get a reply, my sincere apologies. I never saw your note! However, the problem has now been fixed.

Again, if I missed your message, I apologize. Please try again, and I promise to reply!!

This month I’m releasing a new song from my HEART CHRONICLES collection. This song, Pointing the Fingeris all about refusing to let hard times darken our perspective. When times are tough, it’s easy to blame our problems on someone else. The trouble is, doing that gives that person (or group) power over you that they shouldn’t really have. As the new song says:

It’s easy to point the finger; it’s not hard to make somebody pay
But I’m not going to dump on everybody else just because I’m having a terrible day
I used to think like a victim, but it was much too big a price to pay
‘Cause when you blame your problems on somebody else
You give your freedom away

In the Heart Chronicles story, this song opens Act Two, signaling that the thrill of falling in love expressed in Act One is now running up against the downer of day-to-day problems. But our protagonist isn’t going to let it get him down!

As those of you who’ve read my book Staying Off the Wheel of Misfortune know, I’ve always been a student of human behavior, and I’m always on the lookout for insights and useful advice to incorporate into my books and songs. I’m dipping into that reservoir once again to share some of the most helpful advice I’ve found for dealing with situations of great uncertainty, stress and loss.

Getting Past Impossible

Want to change the world for the better? The first step is believing it’s possible.

Taking a Break from Stress with Immersion Listening

By listening in the right way, you can elevate music to a multidimensional experience — and by choosing the right music, that experience can be one of profound peace and joy.

Yes, We’re In the Midst of a Crisis. Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Lose Hope

In nature, change happens in cycles that include a periodic collapse like the one we’re going through right now. If we’re lucky, whatever happens in the next couple of years will leave us with a stronger democracy and a country better able to achieve its highest ideals.

Solving the Unsolvable

Sometimes solving the toughest problems requires solving a meta-problem first.

Marching Toward Waterloo

Today’s tyrants and dictators (both established and aspiring) are about to face the same enemy that really defeated Napoleon – and it wasn’t an opposing army.
