Caring and Courage

I still care greatly what friends and family in particular think of me, but do what I do anyway. I believe it’s a bit like being afraid but not letting fear control my life. I acknowledge it’s there and most often keep moving toward my goal. I focus on needing to use the qualifier “most often” less frequently. It would be a lot easier if the fear wasn’t there, but perhaps it’s not supposed to be easy.

With Love,

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.

  3. Russ, for the most part I’ve attained the “no fear” and “not caring” of what others think of me. It is so freeing. It’s a process so be easy on you! 😄
