For the past 20 years, Tony and I have been publishing the Holistic Networker. It has been quite a journey. When we began, most people did not even know what the word “holistic” meant. Nor did they know about energy and sound healing, craniosacral, lymphatic drainage, tai chi, homeopathy, reflexology and so many other forms [...]
On Thanksgiving Day one of our dearest earthbound angels was called home. I knew Merrily for over 20 years. She worked tirelessly to make the world a better place.
Merrily, had a blind spot for the word, “impossible”—it simply was not in her vocabulary. Marvelous, fabulous, and miraculous, of course, were at the tip of her [...]
The sky is falling. Unemployment. Assassinations. West Nile. Tsunami. Katrina. The Great Recession. We are in the middle of a Great Storm. Entire industries, cities, and even nations are swept up in its wake. This storm is so violent, so inclusive that we have not even dared to name her.

Initially she required 22 surgical staples and seemed to be all right. However, on May 4th, she was diagnosed with necrotizing fascitis, which is an [...]
Aron Schoenfeld recently interviewed me for his blog “Do It In Person” (doitinperson.com). Aron wanted to learn about my WordPress Meetup group which is one of the largest blogging Meetups in the world with over 1200 members. The internet makes distance learning so easy, so why do 80+ members of the WordPress Meetup come out [...]
You can really know about a person by how they treat others in their time of need. Do they push and shove? Are they absent and unavailable? Or do they hold out a helping hand and offer support until that person is able to stand on their own again?

Twenty years ago the internet was a small collection of goverment and educational computers, a place for scientists to communicate. Today, you can access the internet and 3 billion other connected beings with a device that fits in your pocket. Twenty years ago your car had an AM/FM radio, and a fancy cassette player. Today, [...]
Recently my mother was attending a show. They called a woman in the audience to come on stage as it was her 95th birthday. She excitedly got up from her chair and with surprising agility climbed the steps. They then began to play her favorite song. With a lot of enthusiasm, she sashayed across the [...]
