Robert was a typical forty-something with a well paying job, kids, wife, cars, and a house in a good neighborhood.

How to Stop Struggling and Get Past “Right” and “Wrong”

As a child, I loved Star Wars. Oh, who am I kidding? I still do. I could once recite the entire script as one of the movies played. These days I just hope the new movies live up to the legend. I recall watching the original trilogy and being taken with the philosophy of the Jedi. Like many children, I loved the honorable warrior caste, their flashy skills, and wonderful weapons.
