“Coffee Hour” is a collection of whimsical, introspective, inspirational, and honest, journal entries collected over a few decades of Quality Living. This Life has been a challenging, but all in all, charmed ride of an experience. Recommended as a good opener or closer, of the day.
If there were an “Alternative Inspirational” section in your bookstore, this would be in it! With a “Thought for a Day” approach that, at times, leans toward an “Essay for a Day.” Self-help…with a twist! Consider it a “Thought for every other day,” (with a vacation thrown in). For these, are different kinds of days.
Ultimate reverence to the Divine splashes with comic irreverence, for the sake of a conversation with the self that has depth, breadth, honesty and no limits. Walt Whitman coffees with Leonard Cohen for some God-talk maybe/sort of.

“For hard wisdom, won through life’s tough lessons. For brilliant little mental quips in poetry… and consciousness enough to praise your every moments wonder.”
