I was a young man when this started. Sharing a passion more ancient than my years. I am an older man now, knowing that the "Work" still is not complete. I am renewed everyday in the "Work." Every face I've seen, every hand I have held, every heart I've touched is a part of me.
My message now comes from a place deep in my soul. The Work comes from a place that has known decades of life and death. The Work now comes from a place that only those courageous enough to be vulnerable and authentic understand. The Work is always about compassion, courage, empathy, connection and service.
I have always loved the work.
I have always loved you; listener, student, friend.
I have always loved my friends.
I have always loved my family.
Somedays I am barely able to stand.
Most days I am thrilled to be able to walk.
I am still sharing the message.
I am still answering the call.
I am here with you, my voice, my heart, my soul.
After 45 years on the road, I am still here.
The road is long, dark, cold, ice and snow and long hours away from home.
I have never forgotten where I've been.
I am clear on where I am going.
Every speech, every class, every conversation is a step homeward.
My daughter has always been my angelic guide.
My sons continue to be my teachers.
My friends are always in my heart.
Sandra is my love.
I always find my way home.
