Panhandle Park, below my Garret Apartment

Lyon and Oak, San Francisco, 1986 – I’d fallen in love with synthesizers, and learned to compose and play. And how to record these songs.

“Afformations” – a Better Method for Affirmations

In another micro-story here on The Adventures of Bloggard, I described my “Twenty-Second Tune-Up” method whereby you can feel good in twenty seconds. Quite a few people have responded, and asked: “Why does this work so well?”

For example, you say, “I have a million dollars,” but the little voice inside your head pipes up and says, “Oh, yeah, SURE you do.”

And that’s because … Continue reading

BookImage-EndlessNewClients-TAS-3D-312x350-wShadow-revAThe death of a dream … and awakening …

How many men and women awoke one day with a bright dream, a dream of their own business, something they could pour their heart and soul into, something they could trust, and bring something good to the world.

And how it might grow, and the warm sensation of pride deep inside, and a hope that someday, a legacy, something to change the world, if only a little.
