Recently published articles and projects

This is my recently published intellectual property. While trying to determine why nurturing the body and soul are important themes in my work, I heard an Arbinger Institute speaker describe a pyramid of influence in professional and personal relationships. The foundation of each included strengthening relationships before launching corrective measures; which in my mind means nurturing and building by nourishing and delighting the senses. My work has a two-fold mission; we can also promote tolerance and respect by encouraging cultural diversity and awareness and one of the most pleasant times to do this is at holidays.

Many of the news sites are listed by both their title and online address – I’ll make it uniform soon, I apologize and hope it is not too confusing. I have contributed to content by other authors, here is a partial list of websites:

American Airlines Magazine,, BYU SiriusXM Radio 143, Chicago Tribune, The Daily Meal,The Deseret News, The Long Island Pulse,,, The Guardian (U.K.),, McClatchy News Service, Schurz News Service,, Natural Awakenings magazine, (Ireland), and others.
