Man Published: The Final Report Card

Man Published: The Final Report Card

January 29, 2018

When I started this blog, I vowed to work on three areas of my life: my physical health, my relationships, and my writing career. I called this my “man in progress” series. Eventually that series just became integrated into my blog. Today for the blogs last chapter, I’d like us to review these three aspects of my life and share with you what I learned with each. P.E. For eight years on this blog we’ve talked a lot about physical health, diet, rest and how taking care of our bodies can help us be more creative and live a better life. Today, I’d like to discuss what we’ve learned over the years about our bodies, how to listen to them, and how to take better care of them. The Body Politic  There is nothing more sensitive (other than politics and religion) than the topic of body image and food in this country. People are incredibly touchy when it comes to […]

The Path of Forgiveness, Or: How We Reconcile

The Path of Forgiveness, Or: How We Reconcile

January 22, 2018

Recently, I visited The Salton Sea with my family. The man-made lake is the largest in California and is near Palm Springs. Its a picture of desolation, pain, sadness, and… disaster. The fish in the lake are all dead. There is no sand, but what appear to be shell-like salt deposits that crunch like pieces of plastic beneath your feet. The houses near the lake are almost totally abandoned. The only people you see there are the occasional tourist from out of state or from another country. Many of the buildings near the lake are dilapidated, covered in graffiti. There is an opaque, depressive mist-like cloud that hovers over the water. And then… there’s the stench. A combination of rotten eggs, dead fish, and seagull urine, the stink of Salton Sea is one of the most impressive bad smells I have ever smelled in my life, far surpassing my old standard: discarded-corona-bottle-in-trash. The stink seeps into your pours, rattles your brain, and […]

Balancing Yourself: The Five Major Keys

Balancing Yourself: The Five Major Keys

January 15, 2018

For nearly eight years we’ve talked about keeping things balanced, grounding ourselves. Today, I’d like to review what we’ve learned over the years about keeping things on an “even keel.” How To Ground Yourself Communing with nature has been a recurring theme on Courage 2 Create. But it is true that the natural environment always serves to ground us, balance us and remind us just how silly and inconsequential our human lives can be in the grand scheme of things. As I’ve shared with you often: I believe that our creativity and courage can be energized and activated by nature. I don’t think it’s just because our creativity comes from the natural world, but also because creativity is our nature, and when we commune with nature we are realigning with our innate creative impulses. Creative inspiration will literally pour down on me whenever I take a walk in the woods. Courage is also our true nature. When we connect with […]

How To Write A Big Plot Twist

How To Write A Big Plot Twist

January 8, 2018

A draft of my fiction novel is placed in the drawer right beneath my desk. It’s, oh I don’t know, a couple hundred pages long. It’s dusty. It’s been a while since I revisited it. To be honest I don’t recall the last time I revisited it. In the midst of having angels talk to me and visiting strangers homes to heal them, I kind of dropped the ball on my fiction work. I don’t plan on neglecting it for good. I shall return to it when the time is right. But for now, I have to think of the ending to a different novel: this one. This nearly 8 year blog. If you’re just joining me – spoiler alert – the plot twist was this blog was never about me writing a novel – it was about my novel writing me. As my sister wisely told me recently: “you, brother, are the main character,” not the fictional character I […]
