I love being able to bring these to you as they roll across my desk….Please visit and help bring their voices to others you know could use them.  If you forward the blogs to others it may help someone that you don’t even know is still in the darkness looking for a little light today.  Lady J 4Rchildrensfutures


Hi Folks, 2/23/09

A little late with this month’s sharing….I meant to send this back in January, but I’ve been busy, which is always a good thing. Better to complain about being busy, than the opposite of that. I’ve been writing a lot, and the pathways and doors opened up when one is writing a book about your life, well…it certainly can bring on many new challenges.

Quite excited and honored to now be a part of the RAINN Speakers Bureau:

www.rainn.orgRAINN: The nation’s largest anti-sexual assault organization.
One of “America’s 100 Best Charities" —Worth magazine

And speaking of writing, I’ve been asked to contribute to a book being published in the near future. It will contain the stories of survivors of childhood sexual abuse – quite honored to be a part of this worthy endeavor. More info to follow…

While still in the what’s new with me department – I was recently interviewed for an article to appear in New Hampshire Magazine – www.nhmagazine.com that talks about my music, healing, and advocacy efforts. What made this really special was the fact that Sara Lenoe, a friend of mine helped make this possible. It should appear in either the April or May issue, I’ll let you know.

And finally, one of the things I like doing the most, sharing some great resources with everyone. Please take some time to visit these organizations and the individual websites – some great advocacy and awareness efforts going on. There are lots of us out there doing some great works, but we’ll do even more by networking and collaborating with one another.

Take care, Mike

The question is:

" When you think, do you MAKE the thoughts you’re thinking?"



Confused? Weird question huh? Let me ask you again then…………

Do you MAKE the thoughts you think?



Aha. The answer is actually NO.

You ever MAKE the thoughts YOU think

Instead, you actually RECEIVE the thoughts!
