Well, the final book in the Old Man From the Hill series is done and available at Amazon. I tried my best to convey the information I have learned about Qigong and Tai Chi in an easy to understand way. For me putting the information in a story format seemed to be the most logical way for me.

Finished does not mean done. My goal is to continue to write about the things that I enjoy doing and find beneficial for my health and well being and that I thing everyone should know about. I will find new stories to tell and new characters to tell them with.

As I get closer to my retirement I will have more time to write and spend on developing those characters and plot lines. I do not expect my books to be best sellers or to even generate vast amounts of wealth. I write for myself  and to share the benefits of Qigong, Tai Chi, Hypnosis etc. and because it is fun.

Do not hesitate to share any insights you may have for me and criticisms as well. If I cannot take the criticism I have no business writing. Plus it helps me to become a better writer.

Do not hesitate to write a review at amazon as well. It is how I know how my books are perceived by the public. Also Amazon will not put it on their book list unless there are at least 50 reviews for each book.

Do not hesitate to share the books as well. I and others have found the information and exercises to be very beneficial for their health and well being. Simple exercises with great health potential. What more could you ask for.

As a martial artist I have learned that you are never finished learning. As with everything else in life we never finish learning. There is always another belt to test for, another career to train for, another degree to strive for and so on and so on.

Until next time please enjoy the book and stay healthy my friends!


How do you define Success?

How do you define success? Is it the big house at the end of the cul-de-sac? The corner office on the top floor? The large savings account?

I have always liked the one by Ralph Waldo Emerson:

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

So based on the many of my students who have approached me and told me that their health has improved, they can move better and some can even breathe easier; I have been a success!

How can you be successful today?
