I have been published widely in magazines (cultural, historic, travel). Working on several book projects now that I have more time available to me. One of my books is intended to help people gain insight into the often unnoticed events which are catalysts for life change.

I am glad you like it. You may want to contribute - I am collecting people's stories. Basically, if you think about a life path - a major redirection in your life relating to career, religious or spiritual change, studies, relationship - trace that back to some seemingly irrelevant and unnoticed event without which you would not have taken that path. Example - a friend of mine met and married his wife and settled far from home in Central California for no other reason than the fact that an Air Force clerk made a typo on a transfer order. The fact that I have had a 38 year career in politics traces to one afternoon when I was cruising Main and first heard Bob Dylan on the radio and became captivated by him. Everyone I talk to has at least one such story. The value of the book lies in its prompting people to look more closely at the small, almost invisible events that become change factors on a large scale.
