Acrobatics Fun

Guess who. This is a photo of my sister Lee and me in one of our favorite past-times at the time. If I wasn't writing, I was dancing. Acrobatics - ah, I thought I could do cartwheels and such forever. It was quite a shock the day I found out I couldn't.

About Myself as an Editor

My interest in writing began at age seven. By age fourteen I was taking journalism courses and working on the school newspaper. Under my guidance our newspaper won a national first-place Columbia University journalism award and the staff went to New York City to receive it. In the post of features editor, I interviewed every famous person within range, from the Speaker of the U.S. House to musician Dave Brubeck. The photos below are from that period (I was a teenager.) I won a couple ...

More Belgium Shots

Here are two more shots - these inside the home I visited in Belgium in a small village in the Walloon (French) part of the country. Above is one of Chris Van de Velde, me, and Chris's girlfriend, Mary. The room shows the inside of a beautiful, comfortable Belgian home I was lucky enough to be invited into. Chris does therapy and counseling through experiential learning. He was the first person I did energy studies under and has branched out widely in the decades since. On LinkedIn Chris writ...

EXCERPT: Willy Vanluyten – Keep This Quiet! III & IV

Willy Vanluyten, my fifteen-years-younger boyfriend from 1987 to 1991, died suddenly in 1991, at just under 35 years old. Everything around the death was spooky, and the apartment I had lived in with him was more spooky afterwards. Keep This Quiet! III introduces Willy, and the story is carried forward in KTQ! IV. Willy had a short life. He made his livelihood as a truck driver. But he was quite unordinary.  Here is how he entered KTQ! III. He was Flemish. This scene takes place in Tienen, Belgi...

About Me

Having had my own spiritual initiations, beginning in 1985 at the Jung Institute in Zurich, which are recounted in the latest volume in the Keep This Quiet! series: Initiations, I like working with people to integrate the shift and jolts that often accompany awakening to your deeper identity.  Another thing I like is to mentor people wanting to maximize their potential. I additionally offer services to “read” your energy by tracking its path—its divergences, obstacles, blocks, and potent...
