“There are things only you can do, and YOU are alive to do them. In the great orchestra we call Life, you have an instrument and a song, and you owe it to God to play them both sublimely.” –Max Lucado
“Life is fleeting. But if you live your life in hope, hope that you can make a difference somehow, and you strive to succeed, then your life will last forever and you will never be forgotten.” –Samuel Johnson, author of “A Dictionary of the English Language” (1755), the most influential and idiosyncratic lexicon ever written
Hello, and Welcome!
After 21 years on my former domain, I opened this new site in late 2021 so I could continue to encourage and help others through my writing and professional services for years to come.

twice a month.
This mobile-friendly site has easy navigation with content that can be viewed on any digital device. If using a cell phone, however, view in horizontal mode to see the button bar, drop-down menu pages, and sidebar content all in one frame.
For an overview of articles in 14 life-related topic categories, visit the ARTICLES Table of Contents page. Here you’ll be linked to my newest content and dozens of my most popular and timeless articles, reports, and PDF documents, all updated for today’s times.
Enjoy the Site! And thanks for recommending it to anyone who may need the help or information offered. After so many years on the internet I’m essentially starting all over again where the search engines are concerned, given that I had to use a variation of my original domain name for this site. Thus any mention you can give me on your website, Facebook page, or other social networking site will be most appreciated.
Let me know if you do this so I can return the favor.
