Finally Free

I’ve always gained so much more than I thought I’d lost whenever I had the courage to let go of that which I ignorantly clutched so tightly for so long.

With Love,


About russtowne

I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.

      Sadly, sometimes it has been more of a slipped-out-through-pure-exhaustion situation than a conscious decision to let go, but the positive results have often been the same. ;-D!

  3. WHy does it always take us so long to learn Russ?

    So well said. Thank you.

      LOL! I don’t know about you, Colleen, but in my case the only conclusion I can make is that I’m a slow learner! Fortunately life is a patient teacher and will keep providing the lessons I need until I eventually learn them or die, whichever comes first–and I suspect that in many cases it will be the latter! ;-D!
