About the Book

“Looking for Emerald City” is a book designed to inspire and entertain. Made up of vignettes predicated on hope, dreams, and positive thinking, challenging yet hopeful., It suggests various concepts and what to do about them always with a path to solution and resolution. It is above all a book of hope and navigation towards happiness. We are all looking for our own version of Emerald City. Sure, it's a destination but also a journey attempted by ALL of us. I have tried to do it with humor, philosophy, gratitude, and love. Let’s not take ourselves too seriously but remaining grateful for our experiences and lessons learned.  To quote from the cover:

               "The core message of Looking for Emerald City is for everyone to live in the present, cease criticizing others, eat healthy (mostly)smile regularly exercise patience, practice prayer and meditation, and volunteer whenever possible. It teaches us how our lives depend on our attitudes, perception, focus, and energy."
