Living in Alice’s Wonderland


I opened a door in our hallway half expecting to see our old water heater encased in in it’s 3′ x 3′ closet–the only view I’d seen there since we moved into our home in 1989. Instead, I experienced an almost spiritual, other-worldly view: Darkness gradually turning to light so bright that the last third or more of the depth of the project is hidden. Perhaps it’s a reminder to keep my eyes on the prize and how much better our home will be when the project is done. Perhaps it’s a reflection of life itself.

With Love,

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.
