As I have spent much of the last three years recovering from the sudden death of my wife from an extremely rare cancer, I've written several book in an effort to gain healing, realizing over time that full healing never comes with time, and in fact, may never come at all.

Our culture, material as it has become, rejected all forms of spirituality, from shamanism to Christianity, preferring the god of man's self to any intelligent deity outside ourselves. Only in the last decade have people slammed into the brick wall of impossibility thrust on the culture by academics immersed in theoretical suppositions, but little in empirical evidence.

PTSD plagues much of the population of veterans, for which the VA has no answers and in the last eight years, left the men and women who come back from war, with the horrifying end of the line....and more than 300,000 committed suicide waiting for admittance which would never come.

I found help in three ways, all of which sourced out of my faith. I practiced photography, now seeing my world very differently. I pursued music, writing hundreds of songs, expressing the pain of separation, the joy of relationship. And I wrote thousands of pages of books to tell my children and friends, what faith and healing must do to address the pain of suffering, in whatever form it must take.

Emmaus Road is one of those songs, put in poetry on this picture
