Welcome to my new blog, which replaces the newsletter I’ve put out for a number of years.  I’m intending to focus on exploration of what it means to have a life that works well, is satisfying, and has meaning.  Someone once said that psychotherapists know a lot about what makes people unhappy and a little about what makes people happy.  Is that true?  I guess we’ll find out.

I intend to write about what catches my attention in a world that seems increasingly distracted, anxious and frantic, and to seek out ways to make life a little better.  Because I’m a gay man, I expect that much of what catches my attention will come from that perspective, but I hope others will find something useful in it. I welcome your thoughts and suggestions, so feel free to drop me a note.
