My grandmother was a poet. Back in my teens and twenties I wrote poetry too. I penned (literally) this poem back in 1991. It recalled a time when I was eight years old looking at the night sky through my grandmother’s binoculars. Enjoy!
“THE LITTLE STARGAZER”
Little boy eight years old dreaming of adventures bold. peering up into the sky at points of shining light.
Busy counting all the stars through grandma’s old binoculars. Wondering who might live out there Perhaps a race advanced and fair.
Making plans one day to go Out beyond our tiny globe. Journey to the star fields bright Out amid the scattered light.
Twenty years since that summer night Spent scanning distant stellar light. Still search that dazzling canopy For someone staring back at me.

I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company.
I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
