What is the best advice you have ever received?  Stop complaining and step up!

When you are not at the office, you can often be found doing what?  Shell fishing for oysters near our home in Wellfleet on Cape Cod, gardening, hiking or biking with our friends, snorkeling in St. Thomas or St. John, keeping current with the news, or watching a great moving on Netflix!

What is your favorite quote and why?  I have this quote very helpful when I am feeling resigned or stuck at different moments.

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare—a possibility.”-Muhammad Ali

What is your personal philosophy? From a historical perspective, we’re here for a very short time.  Regardless of what life throws at you, you do have a choice about how you respond. For me, it’s better accepting “what’s so,” than living in a world of “shoulds” rooted in my past.  I stay focused on the future I’m living into and continuously listen for what’s possible. My future is about creating, with others, a world of peace, freedom and abundance in every aspect of life.

The one thing I couldn’t live without is: the life I share with my dear, Harriet.
