With the awareness of repetition, I say again: this is your book and your journey. That said, I am glad to be making a journey of my own alongside you.

This part of The Author section offers you other samples of my thoughts as conveyed in interviews or in events in which I am a participant.

I encourage you however, to look beyond my views and explore the Community around A Deliberate Pause .
