Welcome to my blog, where you’ll see ponderings not included in any of my books, yet. This is my ‘thinking’ space where I try to express insights I’ve gleaned about life. At my age, you get to do that. 😉 My blog space, Scar(r)ed, is so-named, because I hope to include personal examples here of things that have scared (or scarred) me in some way (physically, spiritually, or otherwise) over the years. I’ve learned through personal experience, observation of others, and deep contemplation that our heaviest, most trying times facilitate our greatest opportunities for soul growth. Nothing is wasted here in the human experience ~ the ‘bad’ and the ugly are as necessary as the ‘good’ and the lovely. At least that’s what I keep reminding myself, and you should, too. I hope that these ramblings will help you to see your own inevitable struggles, scares, and scars in a different light. Shine on, bright souls.

Call the Man who deals in love beyond repair, He can heal the world of hearts in need of care. Shine a light ahead, when the next step is unclear. Call the Man, He’s needed here. Needed in the chaos and confusion, from the plains to City Hall; needed where the proud who walk the wire are set to fall… ~ Celine Dion “Call the Man”
