My Focus and Wish

To do what I love with those I love, be grateful for everything, foster connection and ease suffering, and help people see the greatness and goodness within themselves and others.

May your New Year be filled with blessings.

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.

      Thank you, Ute. I’ve often wished for things that weren’t what I really needed. Fortunately I’ve been blessed with the latter anyway.

      Happy New Year, my friend.

    I love your focus! I tend not to resolve things because so many resolutions do not come into fruition…unless you resolve every day throughout the year. 😉 Sounds like focus to me! 😀

    I’m starting my new year right off the mark…going to visit my favorite auntie today! 🙂

    You have been a great friend and I wish you enough of everything you set out to accomplish! Happy New Year, Russ!

      Thank you, Mrs. P. I hope your visit with your favorite auntie is delightful. You too have been a great friend to me. Your wish for me has already come true as I already have more than enough of everything. May your new year be as wonderful as you are!
