Powerful Little Book of Comfort — To Encourage Those Who Have Experienced Loss

The electricity went out yesterday, late afternoon, on our island with noisy gusts of wind.  It was a lovely evening of conversations.

Now, I am happy to announce that “Aunt Barbara’s Powerful Little Book of Comfort” is available on and soon to be available on iTunes, Barnes and Noble, Sony and more eBook outlets.  This book was inspired by the experience of losing my loving sister-in-law earlier this year.  Her sudden death left us all deeply shaken.

Devastation can come to those who have experienced a sudden detachment from the people, places and things so interwoven with their personal identity that it is hard to distinguish self from the lost person, place or thing.  This book is written for those who have lost a loved one in death, in divorce or separation; those who have left home to go off to college or left their family and moved to a new location far away; those who have lost their homes, companies or jobs.

I hope this little book will be used as a coaching workbook in this difficult transition.  You can download a sample or purchase this book through today.







The woman on the cover is from an original and is called, “Growing Pains”.  Prints of it are available on






Manny and I spend our days as close to creative projects as possible. We inflate our views with as much positivity as we dare muster. We come up out of the clouds of adulthood and find joy. Manny is a great cook. He shines at being a brilliant listener, and loves to test, encourage and applaud the perceived success of others. Barbara is joyful creativity. She wakes up with hope and sets about showering her world with buds of ideas and ways of thinking.
