Dolphin Smile

(Artist credit; francoise_j @ Deviant Art)

I have been debating for awhile now about whether or not to continue my blog here.  There are a lot of resources out there that cover many of the same subjects I do so I have started to wonder if I am just being redundant and not really all that unique with what I do here.

In addition, I'm not very tech savvy, so it is difficult for me to really tell if my blog is actually reaching out to many people, or if people are just too busy, or if what I do really matters all that much.

I'm not writing this to garner attention ... I'm just expressing some thoughts and feelings out loud, so to speak.   I think we all wonder, from time to time, if anything we do is making a difference somewhere out there in the universe.  So I guess I'm having sort of an existential crisis at the moment ;-)

That said, I wanted to remind you that Scott over at Dolphin Smile has made his book, Messages From the Dolphins, available for a limited time as a free download.  Please be sure to check it out.  He has written a really wonderful book here and I recommend everyone take advantage of his generous offer here and read it for free.  Simply click on the book title and it'll take you directly to the page to download.  Please be aware you need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view it, which is a free program.

Worth repeating - Peace in the Water  (click this link to see video at YouTube)

Check your ego at nature's door and tread softly and with respect.  We are each connected in this world and vital to one anothers' survival. 

Thank you for being here ;-)


  1. I've contemplated ending my blog every other day for various reasons. Takes a lot of emotional energy to write about serious topics. Combine that with my shrinking audience, well, it's tough to keep going. But being that I've been unemployed for a year and a half, I have to keep my brain active, and writing seems to help with preventing me from falling into the abyss.

    I don't know why, but most people don't seem interested in reading substantive information or commentary. If my blog was about American Idol, I am sure I would have much more traffic. Of course, I have no interest in that subject.

    My advice is to hang in there, keep blogging about things that matter. You might not be able to change the world, but if you make one person aware of something they hadn't thought of before, you've done some good.

  2. Thank you Mick! I appreciate your encouraging words, especially from a writer of your caliber :-)

    I'm taking your words to heart ...
