While a student at the University of Maryland, I volunteered with the CARP club. We had a video […]

Living Between Two Worlds

I recently stumbled across a curious book entitled “Between Two Worlds” by Tyler Henry. The sleeve had nothing to recommend it. The book jacket shows a very young-adult Tyler who looks like he belongs in a boy band. But synchronicity or something made me open it nonetheless. It didn’t help that someone sitting near me […]

How Not to Grow Old

No-one wants to grow old. Sure, we long for wisdom, but none of the 20 or 30 somethings I work with ever say, “I wish I was 60 or 70!” Apart from physically ailing, I think the real threat of aging is the dread of becoming a kill-joy wrapped in misery! It’s not that growing […]

It’s kind of scary. They say it’s darkest before the dawn, so […]

On the death of the Beloved, by John O’Donohue

“Though we need to weep your loss, You dwell in that safe place in our hearts, Where no storm or might or pain can reach you. Your love was like the dawn Brightening over our lives Awakening beneath the dark A further adventure of color. The sound of your voice Found for us A new […]

Summer Camp Memories are the Best at Aurora!

I had a curious conversation a few years ago while visiting South Korea. I was talking to a mom and asked about what her kids did during summer vacation. I started expounding about my work with Camp Aurora and the fun the kids have at summer camp, only to realize my enthusiasm was being met […]

Greatness Keeps Giving – Share Your Life

I read a quote by the famous underwater explorer, Jacques-Yves Cousteau, that has stayed with me as a question rather than a statement. He said, “If a man for whatever reason has the opportunity to live an extraordinary life, he has no right to keep it to himself.” This quote causes me to ask myself […]
