Outside-cover

Welcome to my little corner of the world, a place some have affectionately referred to as "Barrytown." It's a place of disjointed and at times paradoxical roads that, like those of my native state of Rhode Island, have had their fair share of potholes. These roads have exited at today, the dawn of new beginnings and new endeavors.

Every day of our lives gives us a chance to shape our tomorrows with all we have learned and, if necessary, to start again. 2014 is my reset button.

As you allow me to share these experiences, insights, and reflections with you here, my hope is that your own journey will be brightened in some way. May you always be blessed and filled with peace and hope!

And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: "Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown." And he replied: "Go into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way."

Speaking of new beginnings, hello Ohio!
