Energy-Balancing Practicioner: Reiki Master/Teacher, Kolamni, MariEl, Diamond Light, and Shamannic Journey

"...we are stunned by the immensity of the universe and amazed by the activity in a drop of pond water...Out of nothing the glorious, awesome universe emerged! Reality, you are gorgeous; Universe you are Wonder-full."

"No plan predestined upon which to thrive or stumble. Only capacity, circunstance, and given limit to embrace, mine, and from which to learn...opportunity waiting for our choice of incarnate splendor. In wild freedom and obedience to our NOW-moment, the Great Work of making one healthy world-community awaits our energy."

School Story:

We salvaged a disastrous 1960 football season by trouncing undefeated Lincoln Park (who were slated to be state champs) in the last game of the season at home. We celebrated by throwing the coaches into the swimming pool and jumping in after them in our uniforms -- prompting the pool to be drained and cleaned. Victory isn't everything, but it was sweet that day.

Wrestled at 154lbs, but when Bill Wood developed a migrain headache, I was inserted in the 165lb class at districts and made it to the quarterfinals in 1960, losing to the eventual state champ.

Tried out for and was selected to give the Farewell Speech at the January gradutation. Taught me that courage is daring to act in the face of fear and that often leads to good results.
