I am married with 3 amazing children and am an ordained interfaith minister through the All Faiths Seminary (started by Rabbi Joseph Gelberman) in New York City.

I look forward to learning more about you.
Thank you for your interest in my blog. I am hoping to add to it again soon. I am currently working on issues of forgiveness and compassion. I expect that work will create my best opportunity, and, direction for The Mystic Tourist. We only ever have but one moment and thing to do but rarely do we seem find it. Even though it is all we have and all we do.
