I’m waiting in the Asheville airport for my first flight. There is free high-speed wireless and I love that. My plane starts boarding in a few minutes. Traveling became much more difficult for me now that I have children. When I left home Anne (my wife) and Liza (my 18 month old daughter - - that's here in the photo) gave me kisses goodbye. My son Joseph (age 6) gave me a big hug as he left for kindergarten. I already miss them. At the same time I love traveling to lead workshops I also love being home with my wife and children. My dad was absent for most of my childhood and I remember missing him a great deal. Working for myself allows me a freedom when it comes to spending time with my family. I get to drop my son off at school and pick him up and I’m usually home when Liza takes a nap which allows Anne to go for a bike ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway which is a half mile from our home.
