Insight for aspiring writers

Because I have been fortunate enough to write and self-publish two books, aspiring writers often have questions for me. The questions are many and varied, but the most common are these.

How do I feel about that?

Communication within relationships can be challenging. Sometimes the intent of the message gets lost between "what I said," and "what I heard you say."

When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
(1 Corinthians 13:11)

Last Friday, for the first time since arriving in Ghana, the streets were silent in Accra. Market women packed up their provisions and textiles from street shops, taxi drivers took the day off and grocery stores and diplomatic missions closed their doors. Friday was also the first time a President had died in Ghana.


Vacationing at respite facilities

Vacationing at respite facilitiesWe all want, and even need, a chance to get away from it all and recharge our energies. A summer vacation is a rite of modern life, but for the nearly 10 million Americans who are currently caring for both children and an elderly parent-the so-called Sandwich Generation-the idea of going on vacation offers up little more than a stressful dilemma: How can the family possibly take a trip when an aging parent is not up for travelling or for staying home alone?
