The Hero’s Journey

Author Entrepreneur Inspirationalist

This morning I think of being naked as I enter worship. I have this thing about being clean and giving God my best so I get up, get clean, and worship him. As naked and as clean as I can be; which means I have to be honest with him about ‘all’ of me. I ask how I work to shed that old skin and to heal, bring back the moisture and protection enough to see something crazy coming but to allow something just to happen as it is. This means I have to be in the moment at all times, careful not to only see the present but the possibilities of the future. The Hero’s journey. I feel like I’m the Hero of my life and I have to first sit at the feet of the master before I can go out into the world to not conquer it…

These Things in the Name of God

I always respect everyone’s choice of religion or style of worship. I don’t consider myself the perfect Christian, yet I hope to inspire anyone to take a leap of faith. The word of God is the foundation of my beliefs. The blood of Jesus Christ the very source of my salvation. Whereas I understand that some of my fellow Christians may not interpret the Bible the same as myself. I have recently become aware that the same Bible I read can be misrepresented to a disturbing degree.

I hoped that the Supreme Court ruling on Same-Sex marriages would have ended the debate for good. An act of separation of church and state to quell the moral struggle in our country. My hopes proved to be too high as the most religious of men and women would deny us peace in this area. The latest individual being Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis…

As much as I love writing, as much as I love my Wife, as much as I love driving my Charger at high speed, there is a sound underneath it all that I also love. That is the sound of Jazz music. I was inflicted early in life. My Dad was into blues and my mom R&B and Gospel but it was Ellington and Basie who sunk their hooks into me, The trumpet of Miles Davis gave me peace though high school. The deep bass of Stanley Clarke played in the tape deck of my first car. Jazz music became the soundtrack of everything I thought was cool.

My favorite radio station was Smooth Jazz V98.7 and one of the voices there was none other than the lady pictured above, Maxine Michaels. Ms Michaels vast musical knowledge and silky smooth voice was unparalleled on Detroit’s air waves. With the emergence…
