The Progression of Touch

So many people ask me about intimacy and there being an art to touching others. Notice when you're around friends, colleagues or someone you're attracted to. They will all solicit a highly different degree of touches. I've always been very affectionate. With my friends, family and lovers. There is a book called, The 5 Love Languages and one of those…read more

Are Books Dead?

I read this the other day: "You say you will never give up the physical book you hold in your hand and turn the literal pages. I said the same thing about downloading music from iTunes.

Popping into Whole Foods downtown today, I was shuffling through produce section to pick up my daily dose of greens.  Freshly finished a run, headphones on, ball cap pulled down tight and preoccupied with my own agenda.

Where is The Man?

the-300-life
In literally hundreds of interviews with men and women, I'm astonished at the erosion of the dominant masculine spirit over the years.   Men are under great pressure to form themselves into something of meaning and define who they are.  Society has changed quickly over the last 50 years demanding the man to be more than his programming was equipped…read more
