My writings have appeared on websites all over the world, including in various magazines and newspapers. I do not view our existence as being set apart from god but rather our existence and the existence of all things is the subtle altruistic outreach of gods love. Life for me is an ongoing quest with greater self-awareness as the means to greater spiritual growth within me and in all that I touch. This interrelationship will ultimately lead towards a greater comprehension of our universe and humanities role as intricate living beings within an evolving and consciously growing universe. It is when we discover and in recognizing our spiritual interconnectedness that is the sustaining essence of all things that we become living, breathing, and ever so subtle revelation of the altruistic outreach of god’s love.

Ohio 7-Eleven owner confronts thief with kindness

I truly believe in the power of Karma because goodness has always manifested in my life. I think this video is an example of a good person passing his goodness forward. It reminds me of an old saying, "....... thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened ....... because goodness never decreases by being shared."

Uncle Harry

The man sitting down in the colored photo is my Great Uncle Harry. He was married to my late Grandfather's sister Mary. Harry was much younger than my Grandfather and you can tell because when this photo was taken he was only 102 years old. I envy him too because he is so much wiser than me and we can all certainly learn from Harry's life experiences. The black and white photo was taken in 1940 and the great looking couple in the photo are my late paternal grandparents.

One of the men in the photo was my great uncle Vincent O'Neill. My Grandfather once worked in the same coal mine with Vincent who was one of his brothers. My grandfather at the time had 9 brothers and sisters. The other photo is of dear friends of mine.
